Notes to Exchange Archive Migrations
If your organization migrates its email system, you will want to ensure staff can still access their legacy emails. TransVault Migrator offers bi-directional migration and conversion capability between Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes archive platforms.
- An organization previously using AXS-One for Notes could migrate its archive contents to say, Microsoft Exchange 2010 personal archives, using TransVault Migrator to perform the migration along with email format conversion, and where needed, decryption of Notes emails ‘on the fly’.
- An organisation using Autonomy EAS for Exchange could use TransVault Migrator to migrate (and convert) its archived emails into a Symantec Enterprise Vault for Notes archive.
TransVault Migrator can convert shortcuts so they work with the new archive system. And, where necessary, TransVault can re-write internal e-mail addresses so that legacy e-mails can be successfully replied to. This is useful where the migration has been in response to a company merger or other scenario where the email address may have changed.
TransVault Migrator also includes the ability to decrypt Notes emails, ensuring that e-mails are fully functional and discoverable in the new environment.
Archive First Migrations
In fact the TransVault archive migration process is so efficient and non-intrusive to end users, that many organizations use TransVault in order to reduce the amount of live mailbox data that needs to be moved when migrating between email systems. This is how it works:
Prior to migrating the actual email service, legacy email (e.g. everything up until the last month) is archived using the existing archive service. TransVault is then used to transform the Notes archive contents into an Exchange-compatible archive (or vice versa).
Unlike mailbox migration solutions that operate in the ‘foreground’, the ‘Archive First’ approach used in combination with TransVault moves data in an unobtrusive, ‘behind the scenes’ way, that does not inconvenience end users or burden new servers with legacy e-mails.
Benchmark testing has further shown that TransVault has superior conversion performance and message format fidelity when compared with leading 3rd-party mailbox migration applications.
