email archive migration to the cloud

Migrate Your Archives to the Cloud

Streamline the migration of your on-premises archives into cloud-based services.

Migrate your archives into Office 365 and other cloud services.

  • Get your archive into the optimum format for your chosen cloud.
  • Be selective in what you move, e.g. only emails < 7 years old.
  • Remove legacy shortcuts from mailboxes.
  • Achieve optimum speeds thanks to cutting-edge performance techniques.
  • Create mailbox and journal extracts.
  • Get a full audit trail of each item moved.

Key benefits migrating your email archives with us.

With over 100 migrations and 15 years experience in email archiving, you can be assured your email archives are in safe hands with Essential as you migrate to your new cloud platform.

Even if you don't have a regulatory need to protect your records, ensuring staff retain quick and easy access to past business transactions and other information held in emails can have a massive impact on business efficiency and your bottom line.

To deliver your migration we have partnered with the world-leaders in archive migrations, TransVault, authors of the first product to be certified by both Microsoft and Symantec, and whose technology is proven in over 1,750+ projects the world over.

Here are some of the reasons why a TransVault-powered migration is regarded so highly:

Super Fast, Super Flexible

High-speed connectors deliver the fastest yet safest extractions from your legacy email archive, and, depending on your destination cloud service, you have the option moving your data directly across the network or preparing your data for drive shipping.  

We will work with you and your chosen cloud vendor to establish the best way forward.

User Aware

Sometimes legacy archives get 'out of synch' (or don't synch shortcuts at all).  This can lead to deleted items re-appearing or things being put in the wrong folders 'post-migration'.

All this is taken care of, we also delete legacy shortcuts so they don't appear in your target cloud system.

This means no surprises, no confusion and no loss of productivity 'post migration'.


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, or for example, put them elsewhere, such as Office 365 RIFs

We can help you ensure the best outcomes for your business and compliance needs.


All data moved is fully audited and nothing slips through the net...

  • Get detailed, itemised reports
  • At a glance migration status updates
  • Auto-retries of any failed items
  • Inbuilt trouble shooting & online KB


TransVault was the first migration vendor to be certified by both Symantec and Microsoft.

IT'S ALSO PROVEN IN 2,000+ PROJECTS to give you and your customer the ultimate peace of mind.

The product had enough flexibility to handle our specific requirements and get us the speeds we were looking for in terms of throughput to Office 365. I would not hesitate in recommending this software, and indeed, Essential, as a service delivery partner, to anyone asked.
