“Although shortcuts would still work across the network after migrating to Microsoft 365, the prospect of maintaining a dedicated email archive on-prem was a non-starter. Essential worked out the best strategy for migrating our archived emails into Exchange Online.”
Get the full benefit of cloud archiving
Modernise your archives
On-prem archives lead to excessive cost, inconvenience & risk:
- Maintenance is expensive: Annual support & licencing costs & ongoing server, storage & backup overheads quickly mount up.
- Access is awkward: Accessing archives may require a VPN connection or a separate interface to Outlook. Archive shortcuts (aka stubs) in Exchange Online can work across the network, but this is unsupported & can create problems ‘down the track’.
- Compliance is complex: You’ll need to govern data retention & carry out eDiscovery in multiple places at once.
By migrating legacy archives into the cloud you can reduce your storage costs, give end users secure, anytime, anywhere access to their data and manage the retention and security of your organisation’s data all in one place.

We help you profile exactly what you have, and present options for dealing with and migrating a variety of different and site-specific scenarios.We also advise on and fit around your overall migration strategy, working hand-in-hand with your IT team to deliver a successful outcome.
Advanced filtering lets you easily select what gets migrate and where. E.g.
- Move selected departments/folders/users
- Move items > 2 years to archive mailboxes
- Exclude deleted items
High-speed connectors are available to connect into most source and target archive systems, delivering optimum speed without negative impact on your network or live email/archive services.
Archives often work by leaving shortcuts in users’ mailboxes. As we migrate your archives we will check their current location and status, and either convert or remove them as needed.
This means no surprises ‘post migration’ that could have a negative impact on user productivity and the ‘end user experience’.
Our archive migration technology is proven in over 2,500 migrations and is trusted by major vendors including Veritas and Microsoft.
