LOS ANGELES, Calif., December 15, 2011


Mail2World, Inc., a global leader of advanced email hosting, email messaging and collaboration email solutions today announced that it has partnered up with Dell Compellent to optimize data storage. Mail2World services millions of customers globally. Data storage and data retrieval is critical to its many clients. Many of whom connect globally via a broadband connection and expect instant access to their accounts. After a thorough analysis of the marketplace and other global storage leaders, Mail2World chose Dell Compellent to further enhance its data placement and storage architecture.


Peak optimization across the globe

“As a global email services provider handling over 10 billion email messages per month, in order to stay ahead of our competition, our operations and network teams monitor every aspect of our hosted service at the millisecond level,” says Mail2World Executive Vice President Youssef Abed.  “As we continuously track and analyze how people use email and the usage patterns, our research indicates that users can tell the difference when there is 100th millisecond of an additional latency.  By reducing the time it takes for our application to recall a message from storage and send it to the customer, we vastly improve the user experience,” explains Youssef. “With the Dell Compellent storage solution, Mail2World is able to further ensure this experience globally.”


Optimum data utilization

“We know from our experience over the last 10 years that people usually access their email within a two (2) week window. Once the email goes over 2 weeks they almost never access it unless they’re searching for data,” says Mail2World Director of Technology Operations Kamil Asfour. “By implementing the Dell Compellent solution, we place the data on the fastest part of the disk and as the data becomes older, it automatically moves the data to the slower part of the disk,” Kamil further explains.  “As we Implement storage intelligence into the management of our global data strategy, we are able to enhance our current technology and ensure that we’re always running at optimal performance.”
