Problem

“We needed to replace EmailXtender 4.81 which had been in use for 14 years and had been discontinued by the publisher. We searched for a replacement product and selected Barracuda Message Archiver. We discovered that the tools we had for exporting PST files from EmailXtender were not functioning properly and needed to find another way to accomplish this. Barracuda Networks recommended Archive360 as an excellent resource for exporting our data.”

Solution

“Archive360’s technician installed the A2A (Archive Anywhere) software on a virtual server we built for this purpose. We completed the export of all data with no critical errors and were successful in importing all the data into the new solution. We ended up moving a total of 400 GB or about 4 million messages.”

Migration Challenges and Benefits

“The biggest challenge we faced was due to our very old SQL 2000 instance that hosted the source EmailXtender archive. Archive360 went above and beyond to make their software capable of working with the old SQL server. Once that was done, the software worked like a charm.”
