Expert Advice

Fine tune your move for success

There’s a lot of choice over where and how you move your legacy EAS archives.  We can provide you with a pre-migration analysis that will enable you to decide what you want to do.  For example:

  • Move leavers’ archives to low cost storage in the cloud where you can access it if you need to
  • Migrate emails less than 1 year old to the primary Exchange mailbox
  • Move emails >1year old to their archive mailbox
  • Merge archives and migrate them to a departmental shared mailbox

Move your email archive in 1 clean, fast step

Your archives are migrated automatically via a high-performance, multi-threaded engine, that connects, directly from your Autonomy/Zantaz EAS archive.

There’s no interim storage or formats that could compromise the integrity of your data or add extra cost and time to your migration.

Our solutions preserve the end user’s view of their archived emails as you move. Folder structures are maintained and shortcuts are cleaned up, ensuring end-users have a seamless migration experience into the archive of your choice.

100% Data integrity

As part of the migration you’ll get detailed chain-of-custody reports showing time-stamped, 1:1 mappings of the item ID in the Autonomy/Zantaz EAS archive and the new ItemID created in your new platform, enabling your business to meet compliance objectives.
