August 12, 2008 - Foxwoods Resort Casino, North America's largest casino, is in the process of deploying the next-generation Mimosa Systems’ Mimosa NearPoint content archiving solution to retain, retrieve and recover the casino's vital email data.


Connecticut-based Foxwoods Resort Casino is comprised of six casinos offering 340,000 square feet of gaming space, with more than 7,000 slot machines and 400 tables for 17 different types of games in a complex that covers 4.7 million square feet. The resort includes 1,416 guest rooms and suites, plus more than 55,000 square feet of meeting space and 25 conference rooms. Foxwoods recently opened the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, featuring significantly increased hotel, entertainment, restaurant and gaming venues, as well as enhanced corporate retreat, meeting, and convention resources.


“We've been experiencing tremendous growth and are growing significantly this year,” said Aaron Tetlow, manager of enterprise systems, Foxwoods Resort Casino. “We've been adding Exchange servers to cope with email proliferation, tacking on more every year. Because of the large amount of historical data we need to access, we knew that quotas wouldn't be a good fit for us. We needed a better, more long-term approach to dealing with the explosion of email. Following an ROI analysis, we determined that deploying Mimosa NearPoint would enable us to remove mailbox quotas—and receive rapid ROI.”


NearPoint will also help Foxwoods to maximize its storage hardware investment by deduplicating the email archive, removing the input/output (I/O) burden from its Exchange servers and ensuring that the resort's email data will be protected in the event of a disaster.
