Champagne Time for Mimosa

Archiving powerhouse Mimosa Systems has cause to pop a few corks: It just signed up its 1,000th customer.

For Web apps, iPhone tools or end user solutions, 1,000 customers isn't even enough to keep the lights on, never mind stock the programmers' fridge with Jolt. But for enterprise software, 1,000 customers is a very big deal.

Mimosa's main technology is NearPoint, a line of tools that can archive files, Exchange e-mail and SharePoint documents. I first met Mimosa soon after its founding in 2003. At the time, startups came by my office several times a week, and most were never heard from again. But Mimosa was heard from again and again. It's a bold, aggressive company that isn't afraid of a little competition.

What's next for Mimosa? The company plans to offer its archiving tools on-premise, in the cloud, or as a combination of the two.
