MailShadowG provides real-time synchronization of email, calendars and contacts between Outlook, Exchange and Gmail contacts and Google Calendar. MailShadowG makes “Continuity in the Cloud” possible for consumers, small businesses and enterprises alike. MailShadowG utilizes Outlook as the client, is transaction-based, applies real-time replication across the Internet for immediate and seamless failover and failback along with mobile user support. What’s more, it eliminates the need for costly infrastructure required by premise-based email systems.
MailShadowG provides instant bi-directional synchronization for fast access and always-on protection of all your vital message information. Its unique transaction-based architecture moves data one transaction at a time and explicitly prevents transfer of corrupt information, thus maximizing fidelity between message stores. Each transaction is securely processed in real-time and stored on both your source and destination. The end result is that that if your primary system fails for any reason, it takes zero time to cut over. Your email continues to operate transparently even when Exchange is down.
Unsurpassed Outlook/Mobile Email Continuity
Unlike other continuity solutions which force you to use another desktop interface to access mail during an outage or disaster, you can continue to send and receive email without leaving your Outlook session. You can also continue to access data from handheld devices using the Gmail mobile applications on BlackBerry, iPhone, G1, and Windows Mobile Treo devices.
With MailShadowG's bi-directional synchronization, IT departments can migrate users from one platform to another without imposing difficult knife-edge cutovers. Email data can co-exist on both back-end systems while users become acclimated with the differences between the two platforms. You can access data through both Outlook and the web interfaces. Messages composed and any changes made in either interface are reflected immediately into the other back-end system. You can even have the Outlook and Gmail interfaces up side-by-side on the same computer and watch data changes in one interface appear on the other within seconds. This co-existence allows you to learn the differences between the two data stores, such as how Outlook's "folders" map to Gmail's "Labels", thus ensuring a smooth transition.
Robust "Continuity in the Cloud" Solution
MailShadow for Google Apps delivers reliable continuity of your messaging data by effectively maintaining two complete archives on both your desktop computer and in the cloud. Even when disconnected from the web, you can access your Gmail, Google contacts and calendar by caching your Google content in Outlook for offline operations. You never need to worry because your data always stays in sync. Installation is a breeze. You're ready to go in five minutes and your email content is immediately safeguarded.
All You Need is Your Computer
MailShadowG is a high-value, low-cost alternative to traditional email synchronization and backup systems. Rather than buying and managing your own backup hardware, recovery data center, or co-location facilities, you can leverage robust cloud infrastructure to carry out your email data backup. All you need is a standard or Premier Google Gmail account and MailShadowG. Anyone who uses Outlook and Exchange can synchronize their email, calendars and contacts with a Gmail account, potentially eliminating the need for costly infrastructure. What's more, since MailShadowG handles everything in the background of your local PC, users can continue to use Outlook with no disruption if, for example, the Exchange server goes down.
