David Rinker, The Sage Group

I just have to say, in all my 15 years in IT, your product – Ontrack PowerControls – is absolutely amazing! Everybody on the planet should know about this product. Your product is all you need for email retention policy.

David Nandell, FHLB Des Moines

The bottom line is that PowerControls is truly incredible and is a must have for any system administrator. It offers fast recovery time as a cost effective solution for mailbox recovery. PowerControls is a good utility for the long term as well, justifying expense in two critical areas.

Gene Perry, The Home Service Store

I just wanted to let you know how well Ontrack PowerControls was performing for us this morning. I have already reclaimed several mailboxes and public folders from a corrupted BKF file, and it has all been very easy and manageable. Thanks again to you and your staff. I appreciate the help.

Data Capacity
Mailboxes = The sum of all mailboxes contained in Microsoft Exchange database files (EDB and log files). Archive mailboxes and public folders are supported, but do not count towards the mailbox total.
Terabytes (TBs) = The sum of all Microsoft SharePoint content database files sizes including log files (MDB and log files)
Server Instances = The sum of all Microsoft SQL Server instances, virtual or physical for production, development, test, staging and QA environments for any year (2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, etc.) or edition (Enterprise, Business Intelligence, Express or Standard) of Microsoft SQL Server
License Period
The duration (number of hours, months or years) a license is configured to operate. The license period begins when the license is created and expires at the end of the specified license period.
Simultaneous Sessions
The number of computers that can simultaneously operate Ontrack PowerControls when using a single license.
License Mechanism
Local Licensing = License capacity enforcement only allows an Exchange EDB or SharePoint MDF to be opened each time if it is equal to or less than the licensed capacity (number or mailboxes or content database terabytes). This licensing method is also known as point in time enforcement.
Online Licensing = License capacity enforcement is cumulative for mailboxes or SharePoint terabytes each time EDBs or MDFs are opened. Once the cumulative count nearly approaches the licensed amount, the user is notified and they have the option to purchase a larger license. The PC or server running Ontrack PowerControls must have a connection to the internet for online licensing. See the user guide for more information.
