I’m pleased to announce the availability of a new whitepaper (attached) from TFE titled  “EV Whitepaper – Migration Tools Overview”.  This whitepaper has been written by Dan Strydom, with contribution from Rick Krieger (EV STEP Partners PM) and Ilya Davidovich (Symantec Consulting), and covers the various migration scenarios a customer may encounter – within Enterprise Vault, from a competing solution, and migrating to – and the main tools available with Enterprise Vault and from 3rd parties to assist with those migrations.  The whitepaper covers the following:

  • Considerations Before Starting a Migration Project
  • Migration Scenarios Covered In This Whitepaper
  • Symantec Technology Enabled Program (STEP)
  • 3rd Party Products Covered In This Whitepaper
  • Introduction to Migration Tools
  • Moving archives using PST Export and Import
  • Enterprise Vault Move Archive tool
  • Akaibu Evolve
  • Globanet Email Migrator (GEM)
  • QUADROtech Archive Shuttle
  • TransVault Migrator
  • Vault Solutions Archive Accelerator
  • Other 3rd Party Migration Tools
  • Migration Scenarios
  • Migrating single or small groups of archives between Enterprise Vault sites
  • Migrating from older versions of Enterprise Vault
  • Re-organizing your existing Enterprise Vault environment
  • Migrating from a different archiving solution to Enterprise Vault

Thank you for the whitepaper Andy!

This maybe off topic but I have EV7.0 for e-mail and file archiving, which tools can I use for migrating the EV File Archiving? Our server and storage hardware are old and need to be refreshed anyway, so I think by setting up a completely new EV environment on brand new hardware and migrate all users and data will be less risky compared to doing multiple in-place upgrades of EV.

Hi Andy,

Is there any tools that can migrate the EV VaultStore to tape before I begin the purging ?

How can the user retrieve it in case there is audit or litigation event happening ?

Kind regards,
