Email and Archive Migration

Email and archives: better together

The problem with email

Email is central to business operations. Your user’s mailboxes need to be functional, available, and accessible at all times – downtime or disruption can bring a company to a grinding halt. It is simply not an option.

The problem with third-party archives

Legacy Enterprise Archiving Solutions (like Enterprise Vault or EMC Source One) are used to help organizations save mailbox storage space. Technology has advanced significantly, and these systems are no longer the best, or most cost-effective option for archive storage.

Many organizations need to move mailboxes and legacy archives at around the same time. This is particularly true for Office 365 migrations, as most archiving systems are not supported by Exchange Online. As soon as mailboxes are moved into Office 365, accessibility to legacy archives is obstructed.

Email archives and GDPR

Many organizations have complex retention and compliance requirements that are best met with a third-party archiving system—but a growing number of such organizations find that the built-in Office 365 archiving tools provide superior control, lower cost, and better tools for complying with GDPR.

The solution

When it comes to migrating mailboxes, the solution you choose needs to be seamless, offering continuous access to email, and no disturbances. Office 365 offers huge email archive quotas and centralized e-discovery benefits. If you’re migrating mail to Exchange Online, your legacy archiving solution is likely incompatible, inaccessible, and an additional unnecessary expense. The best way to transition these two mail systems while maintaining all interdependencies and a chain of custody? Migrate them together.


Email and archives stored within the same system offer the best user experience. By performing an email and archive migration together, you can drastically reduce the amount of time and configurations involved in the process.
