    Why is contentGATE the right choice for your migration?

    Secure and Reliable

    contentGATE provides a controlled and automated way of migrating data from your Communigate system. There is no data loss or inconsistency due to software or human errors, nor any downtime during the migration process; contentGATE collects all info about your migrated emails into a report. It migrates your whole Communigate and replaces Communigate shortcuts with original emails.

    Fast and Effective

    contentGATE provides a scalable way of migrating multiple mailboxes at the same time. In case of corrupted emails, incomplete content, disconnection from Communigate or other errors that may occur during the migration, contentGATE provides a great categorization mechanism. It repeats only the migration of failed items. contentGATE prevents your target system from duplications of your already migrated emails. There is no more unnecessary waste of your storage.

    Smart and Easy

    You can easily connect to Communigate using contentGATE’s native Communigate connector. contentGATE reads the meta-data from the Communigate database and connects to Data Store, accessing the archived emails. Now, you are just a few quick steps away from finishing your Communigate migration. This approach overcomes Communigate’s bottleneck by accessing the archive indirectly. Everything runs automatic, controlled and safe.

      • What does the licensing price depend on?

        The migration licensing is based on the uncompressed data volume transferred via contentGATE into Microsoft 365.
      • How much time does the migration take?

        Time of the migration depends on these specifications:
        a. Performance of the old EMC SourceOne environment – Store, Database and VMs performance,
        b. Where are we migrating to – Exchange is usually the bottle neck,
        c. Even the internet connection can play a role (connected to client’s location),
        d. Performance of the new (target) environment

        The best way to determine the migration speed is through a test migration / POC – prove of concept phase of the project.
      • What migration possibilities do I have?

        To migrate your data first, then shortcuts:
        In this strategy, the data are migrated in the background. User accesses the data from the former archive until the new archive is switched to production. The shortcuts are migrated as soon as the switch is done. After that, the user can use all his new applications to access his archive. Conclusion:
        a. all data available, full-text search is ready (depending on target system),
        b. no time pressure,
        c. no risk of losing access to data.

        To migrate shortcuts first, then data:
        This strategy is useful if the new archive needs to be used immediately and the user wants to migrate emails that are already archived but still present in his mailboxes. The shortcut migration ensures that the active (live) data in mailboxes are migrated first. Emails or shortcuts, which are not active (live) in mailboxes, are migrated during the data migration. The emails that are already migrated through the shortcut migration are skipped during the data migration and no duplicates are created. Conclusion:
        a) The user can immediately use the new archive; live data are available in short time,
        b) More time is needed until the full archive is built (inactive data).

        It is also possible to apply different strategies for different users.
      • Can I run multiple migrations at the same time? Will I create duplicates if I run the migration multiple times?

        Yes, you can run multiple migrations at the same time, also from different sources - PST and EMC SourceOne for example. contentGATE keeps a record of already migrated items, therefore no items are migrated twice.
      • Can I prioritize / select what users will be migrated at which point?

        Migration is group-based, and the migration group can contain any selected users. You can prioritize users by adding them to a migration group and starting their migration ahead of others.
      • Can I migrate deleted / inactive users?

        Yes, the inactive users can be migrated to the new target system /archive. The inactive users can also be exported to PST files, the folder structure will be kept.
      • How can I check if all the data has been successfully migrated?

        At the end of every migration, a migration report can be generated and compared with the prior generated archive size report. You can also run search queries within your report to find a proof of every migrated item.
      • How can I check my license usage?

        In contentGATE, there is an option to check the “License usage information” that will provide you with the exact license usage info.
