Key benefits of Smarsh on AWS



Capture, archive and discover in the cloud

At Smarsh we build products that solve the most demanding communications capture, archiving, supervision, surveillance and e-discovery problems of our customers.

To tackle the most challenging problems, we take advantage of the native benefits of AWS.

Smarsh products deployed on AWS include:

  • Enterprise Archive
  • Conduct Intel
  • Discovery
  • Cloud Capture
  • Professional Archive

Triple active availability

Using Smarsh solutions on AWS enables reliability in your communications and compliance strategy.

We deploy our archiving software across three different, geographically dispersed data centers, called availability zones (AZs). All three of those AZs are actively running the Smarsh software simultaneously. If one of the AZs were to ever go down, you would not lose any data. Your legacy IT recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) are now effectively zero. You will never lose the ability to log-in and access your data.

Infinitely scalable

Smarsh technologies on AWS position your business for the future. By building our technologies on cloud-native and modern infrastructures, Smarsh technologies can ingest, search, and export content orders of magnitude faster than legacy solutions.

By building natively for the AWS infrastructure, as your data volume grows, there is no impact to platform performance. Ingest historical data from your legacy archive and enable fast, efficient use of your entire data archive without any performance degradation.
