Email Archive Migration for Gwava Retain / Groupwise

Organizations around the world have relied on the Gwava Retain email archiving solution to capture and manage their Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, and GroupWise email for business purposes, regulatory compliance and eDiscovery/litigation preparedness responsibilities for years. However, your Gwava email archive no longer meets your needs so your organization has decided to move to another cloud email archiving solution such as Microsoft Office 365 or Google Gmail.

Whatever the reason, you now face the challenge of migrating terabytes of archived email, attachments, and metadata to the new repository in a way that does not compromise regulatory requirements or legal responsibilities or adversely affect employee productivity.

Key Email Archive Migration Concerns

Most organizations moving to a new archiving environment have similar questions and concerns that should be addressed before any migration starts including:

  • How much data do I actually have in my archive and what types of data is included?
  • How much “dark or grey data” do I have (such as archived messages from inactive users and ex-employees)?
  • Do I have Journaled data?
  • Do I need to migrate the entire archive as well as the journal archive?
  • Did the archive include placing email stubs or shortcuts in the live mailbox?
  • I have ongoing or pending litigation; can I still migrate my mail?
  • How do I manage archived email that is under legal hold?
  • Will I be able to migrate and account for 100% of my archived mail?
  • How long will the entire migration take?
  • Will migrating my archive delay my Exchange implementation project?
