The Project Background

Veritas Enterprise Discovery Platform met the detailed record management, legal and compliance requirements of the bank concerning the long-term storage requirements for access of electronic communications. The project scope covered all phases, starting from data acquisition through supervision, archiving, e-discovery and case management/legal review. The solution replaced AXS One and Autonomy in all regional hubs as well as replacing three other local compliance solutions.

The Bank were also aware that their legacy AXS-One system was archiving data into the EMC Centera storage platform, which was now out of support.

A decision was tak to standardise on a new future-proof archiving and e-discovery platform. As part of the technology selection criteria, it was important that the legacy data from AXS-One could be migrated compliantly into the new strategic platform. After a lengthy internal process of reviewing a number of options, which involved teams from the Infrastructure, Security, Legal and regional Compliance business units the bank chose the Veritas archiving and eDP platforms.

Given the importance of the legacy AXS-One data to the bank, the next challenge the bank faced was finding a competent supplier to deploy the Veritas archiving and e-discovery platform, and migrating the legacy AXS-One Journaled data into Veritas Enterprise Vault. bluesource, using Transvault migration technology, was chosen to assist with these critical activities

The Migration Solution

bluesource initially ran a Veritas Enterprise Vault and eDiscovery Platform (eDP) proof of concept, before designing, installing, and configuring the production environments.

bluesource delivered a managed legacy archive migration service and ran a pilot migration which was tested and signed off before moving into the production phase of the migration.

Different regions with various data types were targeted and any known issues were dealt with, enabling bluesource and Transvault to provide intelligence-led options to the bank’s project team – assisting them in making informed decisions

The Result

The approach bluesource took, with the assistance of Transvault, resulted in over 4.2 billion email records or 350TB of data being successfully migrated into Veritas Enterprise Vault. Some of the data sources involved in migration were:

  • Exchange Journal and user emails
  • Lotus Notes Journal and user emails
  • Symphony chat messages
  • Lync/OCS data
