A Better Way to Migrate: The Case for Archiving Before Migrating to Exchange 2007 is a whitepaper written by Devin L. Ganger, Exchange MVP, 3Sharp, LLC.
Learn how to:
- Improve your Exchange 2007 migration planning
- Drastically reduce the amount of time required to migrate
- Improve the stability of Exchange after the migration
- Mitigate risk to your end users
Using a traditional migration strategy presents many potential roadblocks due in part to the increasing amount of data stored in mailboxes. Moving this data from the current messaging system --whether it’s a previous version of Exchange, Novell GroupWise or another SMTP solution-- to Exchange 2007 can take a significant amount of time and invite a number of risks.
This white paper discusses those risks in depth, then offers an alternative strategy for addressing them, as well as simplifying your migration: archiving email before you begin. The significant advantages this approach offers will also be explored.
