  5. Our Clients – Dec 08

  6. Grove Continuity • Automatic activation • Intuitive user interface • Universal web-based access • Hot standby / rolling retention • Recovery processes and spooling • 24 x 7 support and operations centre (NOC) • On-demand (hosted) solution for scalability and flexibility

  7. Business Critical Is email continuity important? • 40% of all SMBs will go out of business, if they cannot get to their data in the first 24 hours after a crisis.Gartner • 96% [of businesses surveyed] reported that during an e-mail outage, there is a huge drop in productivity, and some employees cannot work at all.ApplicationContinuity.org, King Research Survey (reported on InfoStor.com, May 2007) • “In any given 12-month time period, there is a 75% likelihood of an unplanned e-mail outage … concentration of outages (29%) was between 4 & 24 hours duration” • “More than 43% of the outages lasted longer than 24 hours, a length of time that can lead to significant business disruption and damage”Why E-mail Fails: A Survey of E-mail Outages (IBM Global Technology Services, May 2006)

  9. Grove Continuity • More than just disaster recovery • Continuity: running the business during and despite disaster & interruption • Disaster recovery: rebuilding after a disaster – a static, parallel activity requiring time and resources to be diverted from day to day business • Grove Continuity as part of your business continuity management strategy Business continuity management • Compliance with government, industry and corporate continuity requirements • Calculate the cost of down-time – lost opportunities, contract and compliance penalties and tarnished reputation • Is there a gap between the business and IT definition of continuity success? • Take a broad view of vulnerability – e.g.redundancy is good, but homogenous systems remain vulnerable to viruses, published exploits and targeted attacks Business Continuity Institute – www.thebci.org

  10. Grove Continuity Continuity Reactive • Always-on, hot stand-by mailbox • Intuitive web-based user interface universally accessible • Email automatically routed to each user mail-box during outages • Spooling and recovery processes to deliver mail to corporate systems • 24 x 7 support, SLA’s and Network Operations Centre (NOC) monitoring Continuity Proactive 30 • Rolling retention of historic email for 30 days • Plus all Reactive features – always on, automatic activation, web interface etc Continuity Proactive 90 • Rolling retention of historic email for 90 days • Larger mailbox send/receive capacity • Plus all Reactive features – always on, automatic activation, web interface etc

  11. End User wwwaccess Reactive Deployment No change to mail flow until a BC scenario occurs Google Message Security End User Client Email System Continuity Mailboxes • Mail is delivered via MX routing to Client Mail System • BC Mail system is on “standby” in event of BC requirement “On Standby” • In BC scenario mail is accessed via webmail access to BC mail system Client Email System Google Message Security • Mail is delivered to BC Mail System via Postini Failover Continuity Mailboxes

  12. Proactive Deployment Dual delivery, no change to mail flow until a BC scenario occurs End User Google Message Security Continuity Gateway Client Email System Continuity Mailboxes • Mail is delivered to BC Mail Gateway and then to Client Mail System • A copy of Mail is sent to BC Mail System Mail Cloned to Continuity Mailboxes • In BC scenario mail is accessed via webmail access to BC mail system Continuity Gateway Client Email System Google Message Security End User Continuity Mailboxes wwwaccess

  13. Technical Overview First class redundant and resilient facilities • N + 1 redundant design as standard – high capacity mailbox servers clustered into ‘mailbox nodes’ – servers take over from any failures without data loss or delay • Connectivity through physically diverse fibre connections (includes Mistral, Level 3, MFN) and internally protected by firewalls, intrusion detection and monitoring systems • 24 x 7 network monitoring and intervention by Network Operations Centre (NOC) Secure and scalable email technology • Zimbra email server and client designed for secure use in the absence of a VPN – ideal for a disaster scenario when VPN infrastructure may be inoperative • TLS and SSL used throughout and client authentication tokens used (cryptographically secure) to prevent data-injection attacks on the server • Unlike many webmail solutions, no data or software is stored by the browser so it is suitable for use at kiosks and home during a disaster scenario

  16. Email Software Overview Zimbra (a Yahoo! company) • Leader in open source, next-generation messaging and collaboration software, now an independent business unit of Yahoo! after acquisition in Sept 2007 for $350 million • Version 5.0 released Feb 5th 2008 (after Microsoft bid) - according to Zimbra CTO Scott Dietzen, "the most significant release the Zimbra team has ever made" • Key customers include service providers, higher education institutions, and Fortune 1000 enterprises (includes Comcast, Raytheon and internet star Digg) Superior Email Server and Client Technology • All communications (browser  server / server  browser) are encrypted (TLS/SSL), including the XML/JSON HTTP of the web-client and any POP, IMAP, SMTP requests. • All client/server invocations require an cryptographically secure authentication token to prevent data-injection attacks on the server and snooping of the network or client disk • Uses the security advantages Ajax and mitigates concerns: • Dynamic Ajax client download only when a user logs-in • No software is left on the client machine • No persistent client-side caching as there is with traditional web mail clients • No server-side interpretation of JavaScript or other client-submitted code (vanilla XML requests accepted only) • No JavaScript execution on the server so there is no way for a hostile Zimbra Ajax client to inject malicious code • Limited client-side JavaScript within user data with filtering and blocking of “risky” HTML (server and client side) • Only benign URLs are allowed - GET-based REST and URL-based APIs are read-only and do not modify data • Highly scalable and resilient, deployed as clustered mailbox servers on SAN
