EMC Migration FAQs

Transvault delivers rapid and comprehensive migrations from EMC’s EmailXtender and EMC SourcOne back into Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Office 365 and other archive platforms such as Enterprise Vault.

  • One Step – Migration is done at the API level in a single, synchronous step, requiring no interim stage or interim storage.
  • Transparent to users – Users can access their data whilst it is being moved – there is no need to disable access to the archive.  Shortcuts are seamlessly converted to point to the new archive store, ensuring the upgrade process is completely transparent to end users.
  • Ensures Compliance – Throughout the migration process Transvault maintains a full audit trail to maintain chain-of-custody – this is an important consideration for compliant retention.
  • Automatic Failover & Logging – Transvault keeps a complete error log, with the ability to automatically resume a migration task that fails for any reason (e.g. owing to a network outage or a corrupted item).
  • Notes to Exchange Conversion – If you’ve been using EmailXtender or SourceOne for Notes, and you want to migrate to Exchange, Transvault delivers on-the-fly, high fidelity Notes to Exchange conversion.
  • Advanced Features –  Transvault enables high flexibility, including the ability to perform email address re-writes to address the needs of a company restructuring, etc.

Yes.  Transvault supports migration of archives that have been written to EMC DiskXtender, as well as a variety of media types, including EMC Centera devices, DVD-R, tape, or magneto-optical Ultra-Density Optical (UDO), WORM, WORM-tape, and Network Attached Storage (NAS).

Transvault provides a comprehensive shortcut management service that ensures users have a seamless experience when they migrate.

When moving to Microsoft Exchange (or Microsoft Office 365), legacy shortcuts are replaced (rehydrated) with the original item.  You can also set policies that determine whether items are moved into Primary mailboxes or In-place Archives.  For example, you could move items older than 2 years into archives, and keep everything ‘younger’ in the Primary mailbox.

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.

Similarly, where users have deleted their shortcuts, you can configure Transvault not to migrate the corresponding item, as this is confusing and causes concern for end users when deleted items reappear.

Transvault offers the fastest and safest migration times in the industry.   This is confirmed by the many Partners we have that have direct, project-based experience of Transvault vs other migration solutions.

Transvault’s multi-threaded, multi-server capability means that multiple extraction and ingestion pipes can be set up between your source and target system, thus driving your environment to capacity.   You can also process a single mailbox using multiple migration threads – ideal for processing large archives and journals in the fastest possible times.

It is important to note that achieving best performance is always dependent on environmental factors such as:

  • Available network bandwidth
  • Speed of the storage subsystem on which the legacy archive sits as well as the destination storage
  • The ingestion performance of the target archive system
  • The scheduling of other project elements such the commissioning of the target environment.
