Object-Based Content Store to Meet Today’s Content Volume and Variety

Unlike email-centric archives designed 10-15 years ago, Alcatraz is a distributed, cloud-based platform for all forms of communications, preserving the context and metadata of the native conversation. Alcatraz is built using the same elastic technologies underlying applications such as Facebook, Netflix and Google and as a result, Alcatraz can ingest up to 250 messages/sec including the indexing, search and retrieval of the first page of 119 Million documents in less than a second and export of up to 250 messages per second.

Contextual Archiving with Snapshot Technologies

Alcatraz uses patent-pending technology to store conversations as snapshots. Snapshots can then be threaded to allow events of significance to be combined for additional context, even if a portion of the conversation has been edited or deleted by the end-user. Reviewers gain insight into the relevance of complex interaction events, such as real-time chat, blog entries, discussion board comments, etc. in a single view.

Lower Cost of Information Management: Now and Into The Future

Customers can leverage on-demand scaling and performance of a single cloud archive across all communication sources to significantly reduce the total cost of information management. An extensible platform ensures that additional, emerging communication channels or custom-built internal applications can be easily brought under control.

Security To Protect Critical Information

Alcatraz delivers security and data protection to meet the high standards required for regulatory compliance and eDiscovery, including encryption for communications in-motion and at-rest, as well as a comprehensive suite of security controls and key-management processes to ensure that the controls are continually monitored.

Open APIs to Ingest Third‐Party and Custom Content

Alcatraz provides an extensible content store with full APIs that can be leveraged by third parties to insert, search, access and export of archived content for data visualization and analytics, as an example, as well as to archive additional communications and transactional content.

Deployment Models to Meet Your IT Strategy
