Why we should be your only choice for your Email Archive Migration

Dell (Quest) Archive Manager is a popular email archive platform, however, you plan to migrate emails from Archive Manager to a new platform, such as Enterprise Vault or Office 365, you will need to pay a lot of care and attention.

For example, as a by-product of writing emails into its archive, Archive Manager is known to ‘break up’ messages and as a consequence, not retain all the original email meta-data.

When migrating data out of Archive Manager, Essential’s migration service will analyse the status of your archive, and if needed, we will reconstruct emails as far as possible to ensure the best results in your new chosen platform.

We will also carry out your migration in a way that does not adversely impact performance on your legacy archive service (for example, we can migrate directly from disk, bypassing the archive server and using the fastest routes into your chosen destination).

For more information on achieving the best results when you migrate data out of Archive Manager, get in touch.

“From the outset Essential provided us with a lot of information about preparing for the migration and what to expect from the process. They also had a good understanding of compliance and audit requirements, all of which gave us a lot of confidence in their approach.”
