Saving Time and Money by Archiving Before a Migration

This paper discusses the problems of data bloat in your messaging environment and the benefits of using Quest Archive Manager to archive before you migrate.  In particular, dealing with the data bloat issue prior to migration will provide many benefits during the entire migration process. Most importantly, it will speed up the overall migration and shorten the co-existence period. Also, you can achieve greater efficiency in storage operations by accurately archiving non-accessed data to a data management system. In addition, you can provide this data in a platform that is less expensive than messaging storage solutions. Lastly, you will minimize data loss, and reduce or eliminate the impact of migration on end users.
