Successful Education sector email archive migrations

Cloud Migrations in the Education Sector

Educational organisations have been slower to move to the Cloud, often voicing concerns about compliance, data privacy and complexity. As such on-premises solutions remain the default, with a room full of servers running all the necessary systems and holding all of your organisation’s data.

The pandemic has made it abundantly clear to many education institutions that embracing the cloud is key to their ability to adapt in uncertain times and future proof their learning environment. The benefits of the cloud for the education sector are numerous, spanning everything from collaboration to security, compliance to cost saving.

Transvault has unrivalled experience in helping educational institutes securely migrate their email archives to the cloud and start reaping the benefits. We’ve worked with some of the most prestigious universities and schools, moving large numbers of mailboxes and millions of emails. Sometimes this is part of a broader digital transformation project, or as a stand alone task.

The email archive migration solutions we offer are always bespoke to your situation and exact needs. From working with stringent data policies to ensuring staff and student emails are retained indefinitely, we focus on achieving the best outcome for you. This involves close collaboration, outstanding support and effective communication. Together with our trusted partners, we deliver secure, compliant, streamlined and error-free email archive migrations for even the largest global education organisations, regardless of source platforms and project complexity.

Our experience in delivering successful migrations to our University and other education sector customers is unrivalled. We’ve moved large amounts of sensitive data and significant numbers of emails using our market-leading Migrator software. If your existing email archive has become a drain on resources and a burden, now is the time to move to the cloud and future-proof your organisation.

Migrating education email archives to Microsoft 365

Many education institutes making the move to the cloud decide to migrate to Microsoft 365. When used to its full potential this powerful platform can dramatically improve the communication and collaboration that is critical to all educational organisations. It can facilitate real-time communication between students and lecturers, peer-to-peer and between educators across organisations around the world.

If you’re not already using Microsoft 365, migrating your critical communication workloads such as your email archives can seem a daunting task. Transvault makes this process simple. Sometimes organisations have already moved their mailboxes to Microsoft 365 and are looking for someone to handle the email archive migration specifically. This is where Transvault comes in. We’ve carried this out for Rochester Public Schools, migrating their archive from a problematic Enterprise Archive Solution (EAS) into M365.
