Commvault Migrations

Quickly and securely migrate your legacy archived email to and from Commvault

Transvault is the go-to solution for migrating Commvault users, leavers and journal archives into a range of on-premises and cloud-based destinations, including Microsoft Office 365.

Transvault migrations from Commvault start with a deep dive into the Commvault archive data to establish its exact contents. This initial analysis enables organisations to create a baseline from which they can check that emails, metadata and attachments have been successfully migrated.

Migrating from Commvault

Commvault is the latest archiving platform to be added to Transvault’s extensive list of email archiving solutions. Our Commvault migrations utilise a direct connector via the Commvault REST (Representative State Transfer) API.

All data movement is fully audited to ensure chain-of-custody. Mailbox shortcuts are fully managed to ensure a seamless experience for end-users as they move.

To extend the seamless user experience, Transvault also provides a comprehensive shortcut management service. As your data is moved, the corresponding shortcut is converted to point to the new archive. This activity can take place whilst users are online, so there’s no need for any downtime or for users to logout.

Here are just some of the platforms we support for Commvault migrations:

Transvault also supports migration from a wide range of archives into the Commvault Express journal service.

Commvault Migration FAQs

Available from a global network of Transvault Certified partners, Transvault quickly and securely migrates legacy archived email (including archived user mailboxes and journals) from Commvault V10 and V11 (please call for other versions) into a wide array of different email archives and platforms.

It also migrates from a wide range of archives into the Commvault Express journal service.
All data movement is fully audited to ensure chain-of-custody, and mailbox shortcuts are fully managed to ensure a seamless experience for end-users as they move.

Where possible, Transvault connects directly via the Commvault REST (Representative State Transfer) API. In some instances, for example, when retrieving messages, we work directly with the source data. This is because the CommVault API can be slow and therefore not ideal for mass extractions at high speed.

Transvault provides a comprehensive shortcut management service that ensures users have a seamless experience when they migrate. As your data is moved, the corresponding shortcut is converted to point to the new archive. This activity can take place whilst users are online – there’s no need for any downtime or for users to logout.

In the situation where shortcuts aren’t supported by the target archive (for example, if you’re migrating from Commvault to Exchange or Office 365), legacy shortcuts are replaced (rehydrated) with the original item.

Another key feature designed to ensure a great user experience is that Transvault synchronizes with the current status of users’ shortcuts as they exist in their mailbox at the time of the migration. For example, where users have re-foldered their shortcuts ‘post-archiving’, Transvault ensures the corresponding items end up in the right folders post-migration.

Transvault migrations from Commvault start with a deep dive into the Commvault archive data to establish its exact contents.
This initial analysis enables you to create a baseline from which you can check that everything – emails, metadata and attachments – has been successfully migrated. It also enables forensic 1:1 auditing that provides evidence your data has been successfully transferred to the new environment.

Pre-analysis of the contents of your archive also gives you visibility of how much data there is to be migrated, how many mailboxes exist and how long the process is expected to take. This enables you to streamline and prioritise your migration, for example, migrating the IT department first, and apply policies that determine what you move and where. For example, move items less than 2 years old to primary Office 365 mailboxes, and anything between 8 and 10 years old to In-Place Archives.
