Nextpoint, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based regulatory, compliance, and litigation software, announces newly launched support for Tumblr.com in Cloud Preservation, its forensically sound social media and website preservation product. On the heels of the announced engagement to archive all social media for the City of New York, Nextpoint is adding to the growing list of social networks supported in Cloud Preservation, which now includes Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Flickr, among others.
As of November 14th, 2011, Tumblr had 33,318,876 Tumblr blogs, and Tumblr users were posting at a rate of 38,000 posts per minute. “Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors to your theme’s HTML,” according to tumbler.com/about.
Not only are Tumblr posts stored as they appear to website viewers, but Cloud Preservation also forensically archives multimedia file resources used within posts. Photos, video, and audio from posts are all automatically archived. Just as video files from sources like YouTube and Vimeo are viewable within Cloud Preservation, audio files shared on Tumblr can also be played without leaving Cloudpreservation.com.
An immediate, on-demand solution that allows users to securely preserve multimedia content from social networking sites, blogs, and public-facing websites, Nextpoint’s Cloud Preservation service (cloudpreservation.com) has been deployed by corporations, municipalities, law firms, and institutions of all kinds as part of a sound e-discovery readiness strategy and to remain in compliance with federal and state regulations.
“Organizations continue to recognize their legal and compliance obligations in regards to the Internet and social networks,” stated Rakesh Madhava, CEO of Nextpoint. “Tumblr is a very popular blogging channel containing multimedia content of all types, and the latest release of Cloud Preservation continues to extend our reach of available cloud data stores that we can securely archive for our growing list of clients.”
