With customer archives growing exponentially, the timelines involved in migrating data workloads to the cloud are becoming a critical factor in choosing the optimum onboarding strategy.

The rush to re-locate is being fuelled by the fact that organizations are looking towards Office 365 to meet their compliance and eDiscovery needs relating to sensitive, personal information held in historic archives and email journals.

Migration leader, Transvault, offers a proven, end-to-end cloud migration capability for sensitive data, and is continually working on enhancing its performance.

Recently in Australia, Shire recorded a sustained migration throughput between an on-premises legacy archive and Microsoft Office 365 of 6.7TBs a day.

This incredible performance was sustained across multiple days and the project completed in record time, much to the delight of the Shire team responsible.

We’ve always put an emphasis on migration performance, even more so now that everyone is keen to take off to the cloud as quickly as possible. However, we never prioritize performance over a proper, defensible migration. We work closely with technology vendors, in this case, Microsoft, to properly understand their best practices when it comes to moving data to their cloud-based systems. As a result, we have the most compliant and streamlined Microsoft Office 365 email archive migration capability available.
