Many businesses have created an email archive for compliance purposes and to ensure emails, documents, calendars, and other data in the email system is preserved to meet regulatory obligations and for disaster recovery.
Many businesses only discover after they have been using an email archive that it does not quite live up to expectations, is proving to be expensive, or the archive is no longer performing as well as it should.
Once you have set up an email archive, it does not mean that you are tied to any provider. Migrating your email archive to another provider that offers a service that is more suited to your organization requires a little planning, but it can be a pain free process.
Is it Time to Upgrade your Email Archive?
One of the main reasons for changing an email archive is because legacy archives have become sluggish due to the volume of backed up data. Over time, these legacy archives can become unreliable, searches do not always provide all the results, and in some cases the archiving solution reaches end of life and patches are no longer issued so security becomes an issue.
Storage space can become a problem if you are using aging email archiving appliances or physical servers, and latency can increase, especially if you have transitioned to cloud-based applications such as Office 365. If an email archive is failing to perform, it is time to upgrade to a new archiving solution; one that is more modern, can be searched much more rapidly, and does not pose a security risk to your organization.
Cloud Email Archives Can Solve Your Archiving Problems
With an increasing number of organizations having migrated to Office 365, using a cloud-based email archiving service makes a great deal of sense. Your email data is already in the cloud, so switching to a cloud-based email archive is a logical step. Moving data from the cloud to on-premises infrastructure is likely to involve some degree of latency, whereas archiving from a cloud service to another will avoid these latency problems and see improvements in performance.
You will not need maintain on-premises hardware with a cloud-based archive. The email archiving service provider is responsible for maintaining the hardware, patching, and performing updates. Cloud-based email archives also have scalability. As your email volume grows, your archive automatically scales, and more storage space is made available. You will never run out of storage space with a cloud email archiving service. Your cloud email service provider will just arrange for more servers to be made available.
Cloud email archives can also be accessed from any location, on any device, through either an email client or web browser – something that has become much more important during the COVID-19 pandemic, with many employees now working from home.
Making the change to a new email archiving service provider will likely greatly improve performance and allow faster archiving and searching. That means considerable productivity gains and less headaches for your IT department as the maintenance burden will be eased.
Companies that switch from legacy email archives to cloud archiving services can greatly reduce the cost of email archiving, allowing them to put their resources to much better use. Even switching from one cloud email archiving solution to another can see considerable costs saved.
