Patented Intelligent Load Balancing for Journaling Infrastructures
Journaling in organizations, particularly large and enterprise organizations using Microsoft Exchange, suffer from two critical problems.
- Archiving performance and backlog
- Duplicate indexes, where a message hits multiple journal mailboxes
Organizations have to invest in significant journaling resources and infrastructure to keep on top of a continual stream of compliance messages, which is increasing day by day.
One of the driving factors for multiple journal mailboxes is the sheer load placed on the archiving system while a journal task is running. Each storage service can only maintain a specific number of messages archived per hour. Once that threshold is reached, it is time to split to a new journal mailbox, which results in duplication and load increases.
Globanet Balance was designed to solve the two problems noted above with the following solutions:
- Load balancing between multiple centralized journal mailboxes, thereby reducing the number of journal mailboxes an organization needs
- Eliminating index duplication, so messages do not end up in multiple journal mailboxes
How it Works
Globanet Balance is a patented (U.S. Patent No. 9,185,059) technology that allows organizations to reduce their journaling to just a single set of centralized or regional journal mailboxes without multiple journal mailboxes and archiving tasks in each location. The solution redistributes journal mail in a round-robin fashion, allowing messages for all users to be evenly distributed into a centralized mailbox set.
Globanet Balance is a simple Windows Service that offers extensive logging and reporting with a fast and easy installation to get load balancing started.
