LiveOffice Offers Archiving for Office 365

Microsoft's Office 365 provides users with 25 GB of capacity per mailbox but what if you need advanced archiving capabilities?

One option is from LiveOffice, which said it is offering advanced archiving, e-discovery and compliance services for users of Office 365. The LiveOffice service automatically synchronizes Exchange and SharePoint data, enabling end users to access messages and data in the archive from Outlook. Support for content from Lync will come in the fourth quarter.

Users get unlimited storage capacity, said Steve Buccola, the company's director of product management. "As all your data is being archived. It's being sent by 365 to us," Buccola said. "We're real-time indexing that data so it's accessible to the end users inside of Outlook. It appears as a folder and users can click on it and run searches very quickly to access their archived items in real time."

Many of the company's customers are finding its service as a means of providing continuity, so if there's an outage users can still access the folder, which lets the user retrieve all the messages they've sent and received. "It's essentially their backup in the cloud," he said.

In the event of an Office 365 outage, users can access their archives from Outlook and send and receive messages from the archive folders. "Within our hosted archive, the users can continue working as if they were working in [Office 365]," he added.

The company also is promoting its service as a way to ease Office 365 setup by importing data from on-premises Exchange systems into LiveOffice and then synchronizing the mailbox with Office 365. It will synchronize messages, e-mail addresses and distribution lists.

LiveOffice provides native access from Windows Phone 7 devices and other mobile clients.
