What you need to do
Now is the time to setup a project to migrate your legacy email data from Dell / EMC SourceOne to 365.
IT2U can facilitate this and provide you with an end to end migration solution. Not only do we move the data to the cloud, but we can also automate many of the other associated tasks that need to happen during a migration, not least of which is communicating to the end-user what’s happening, when, and what will happen next.

Why Migrate?
On-prem Exchange development will eventually cease and 365 will be the only Email offering, also, the Microsoft Exchange Journaling is likely to become a metered and chargeable offering which will be based on a seeded capacity, once a customer exceeds seeded capacity, consumption meters will kick in.
Emails are captured by third-party archiving products by enabling Journaling, and as Journaling may not be an option going forward the correct migration path is to 365 and use the inbuilt 365 compliance and retention features.
Our recommendations to migrate archiving solutions to 365 do not only apply to DELL EMC SourceOne, but to all Email archiving solutions.
It is important to create a project plan for migration, delaying this decision could introduce security risks, create staffing challenges. IT leaders need to act quickly to identify an alternative and to safely move all existing data to avoid business disruption.

Storage Migrations

NAS, CAS or SAN migrations require careful planning around the needs of your organization.
There are many ways to migrate data, each with its own pros and cons. Often it will include use of migration utilities that can run on the host, storage or network layer; and data can be moved in two basic ways, by copying or by mirroring.

Our qualified consultants will help you painlessly migrate your data to a new storage platform, by selecting the correct migration method and with thorough planning and analysis we will ensure that that end result is right for your business.

IT2U can help you to minimize the risk, duration, disruption and cost of data migrations.

CAS to NAS Migrations

IT2U can support you in migrating files and applications, we provide migration services between CAS and NAS devices which include:

  • From your present Centera system to a later generation of Centera
  • From Centera to a NAS storage
  • Centera to Data Domain migrations

Many applications support writing to Centera via its API. Over time a decision may be made to replace the existing Centera storage infrastructure with a lower cost alternative archival storage system, this is where IT2U can help.

We specialize in Email and File Archive migrations, especially where the archive data resides on CAS and Worm devices. We can migrate TBs of data a day to a platform layer of your choice. For regulatory purposes we make sure that a complete audit trail is kept intact throughout the migration process.

SAN to SAN Migrations

IT2U offer SAN migration services to organizations who want to consolidate two SAN environments or move from one vendor environment to another,

Our qualified consultants will plan the migration, migrate the data and verify the migration, typically we will:

  • Assess the source SAN
  • Develop a migration plan
  • Migrate and verify the data
  • Validate functionality.
  • Full testing and handover

This service is ideal for small to midsize migrations with tight deadlines and/or limited internal resources. Depending on budget and operating requirements, the migration can be managed onsite or remotely.

NAS to NAS Migrations

IT2U can help drastically reduce the risk and more efficiently manage your entire migration process.
Our migration services address process, technology, meet business requirements and eliminate business disruption.

File system migrations are notoriously complex and labour intensive projects made even worse by the scaling of modern NAS systems. Switching storage vendors adds another level of complexity due to the operational and configuration differences of retention and multi-protocol support.

Our experienced consultants provide NAS to NAS data migrations, we cater for file migrations across similar or dissimilar NAS platforms, and this includes cloning any retention policies applied to source data.

IT2U can help by reducing time, cost and resources required for major NAS migration projects.
