Soluvia IT Services in Mannheim were using Metalogix Archive Manager for many years. Due to its limitations, not supporting multiple sites nor being able to scale, they decided to switch to contentACCESS; contentGATE was used to migrate more than 30TB and 150+ million emails. It was crucial for emails from both archives to be accessible during the whole migration time. And this was possible thanks to contentACCESS’s virtual migration capability, which allows all users to access the Metalogix archive, exploiting a native access directly to the archive store and database.
PPF was looking for a new email archiving solution with the ability to support Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365). A hybrid coexistence of the On-Premises and Cloud world as well as mobile access to the archived emails was needed. contentACCESS fulfilled all the requirements and provided PPF with even more benefits. And thanks to contentGATE, the former archiving solution 'Enterprise Vault' was migrated in few days, transferring more than 11TB and 30+ million emails.
HKL Baumaschinen in Hamburg were facing a huge challenge, to either update the existing EMC Dell Source One email archive or to find and implement a new solution. Based on the new archiving requirements, to have an automatic, reliable, and secure archive, contentACCESS was chosen as their destination and contentGATE became the best tool for their migration. contentGATE helped to migrate 4,6 TB of EMC Source One data and 24+ million archived items into contentACCESS. contentGATE was also the only option how to migrate PST’s into contentACCESS archive while staying compliant to all regulations.
Coutts & Co Bank in Zürich has been planning the transition of Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) for a long time. Prior to Exchange Online, an on-premises Exchange was used together with Saperion ELM E-mail Archiving, which was used to offload E-mails from mailboxes, placing shortcuts instead of the original emails into the live mailboxes. The challenge was a whole reintegration of the original emails instead of shortcuts back into Office 365 mailboxes, as well as a huge restoration of all Saperion ELM archived emails under a special folder back into the O365 mailboxes and archive mailboxes. Using contentGATE, both goals were easily and quickly achieved.

How much time does the migration take?Time of the migration depends on these specifications:
a. Performance of the old 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 the 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 the 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 located 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 to migrate the full archive.
You have also the option 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 Metalogix 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 user you choose. You can prioritize any user by adding him to a migration group and start the migration of this group in preference.
Can I migrate deleted / inactive users?Yes, also the inactive users can be migrated to the new target system /archive. The inactive users can also be exported to PST files and 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.
