Enterprise Vault Migration

Enterprise Vault (EV) was the most popular on premise email archiving solution in the last couple of decades but has fallen behind newer, more powerful lower-cost cloud-based archiving platforms.

The EV on premise archive requires annual software support agreements, additional servers with their associated support costs, ongoing disruptive system upgrades, additional personnel, and annual purchases of expensive enterprise storage.

An additional reason Enterprise Vault has fallen behind other archiving vendors is the overwhelming adoption of Office 365. As companies move their live Exchange email systems to the cloud-based Office 365, the question of what to do with their huge and expensive EV archive becomes a priority. There are two alternatives: keep the EV archive running and try to tie it to Office 365 to maintain archiving, a complex undertaking which does not relieve the company of the EV related costs. The second alternative which most companies are choosing involves migrating their EV archives to Office 365 to take advantage of the free archive folders.
