Enterprise Vault.Cloud (EV.Cloud) is one of the most challenging email archives to migrate. EV.Cloud migration is a single-connection process that is painfully slow and often corrupts the data while it is being extracted. Archive360 is proud to be the leader in archive migration performance. For EV.cloud migration, I am pleased to share this recent Daily Extraction report from an actual customers who was migrating archive data from EV.Cloud to PST files.
At Archive360, we know a lot about de-commissioning legacy email archives. Every day we speak with potential customers about moving legacy email archive data to Microsoft Office 365 or a new email archive. The underlying question on each customer’s mind is, “should I migrate the archive data now or can I want until some future time?” At the end of the day it is the responsibility of each customer to make this decision. In this blog I will address the potential security risk of maintaining a legacy email archive.
ATLANTA – September 20, 2016 Archive360™, the leading provider of email archive migration software, today announced that it will be showcasing its Archive2Anywhere™ compliant email archive migration solutions and Archive2Azure™, the industry’s first Microsoft Azure –based long term compliance storage solution for low-touch, inactive, and grey data during next week’s sold-out Microsoft Ignite Conference, in Booth 2144.

You've decided to migrate the on premise Exchange email system to Office 365 but your email migration service provider has rightfully asked if your company also employs a separate email archiving solution. For most companies, the answer is yes and in most cases that email archive is 10x to 20x larger in size than your live email system. The great thing is Office 365 includes the personal archive so you will be able to migrate the entirety of your aging and costly email archive up to Office 365 and jettison the high annual cost of maintaining the on premise email archive. The only cost involved is the actual migration of the archive data and in most cases that cost will be a small percentage of the annual archive support cost.
Many organizations are moving their Exchange email systems from on premise to the cloud via Office 365 to save cost, simplify operations, and increase ease of use and productivity for their employees. Migrating the contents of an on premise Exchange email system to Office 365 is straight forward and can be accomplished in a relatively short amount of time. But what if your organization also has an on premise legacy email archiving system as well?
Microsoft FastTrack was designed to help you move your on premise Exchange email system to Office 365 “smoothly and with confidence”. But, when you read the “fine print” you discover that FastTrack will NOT migrate email archive data, including compliance-related journal data. The problem with this oversight is that most organizations planning to migrate to Office 365 similarly have a legacy email archive that should also be migrated. In fact, in a recent survey by Osterman Research, 64% of Office 365 migrations include a legacy email archive, so this lack of support is a major “road block” (or at least speed bump) to fully migrating to Office 365.
Are you familiar with the concept of Exchange Journal Data? Many are not so let me give you a quick refresher. Journaling has been a mainstay of the Exchange Server for many years. In fact, it was introduced in a Service Pack for Exchange 2000 and has been a feature ever since. Journaling is enabled per mailbox and sends a copy of every message sent or received to a designated storage location, in many cases an email archive.
Lawsuits have become a (high) cost of doing business for most organizations. Because of that, eDiscovery response should be proactively planned for to ensure the lowest possible cost to the company.
