Enterprises Get End-to-End Data Migration Solution for Improved Business Efficiency

Microsoft TechEd – Houston, TX: Mimecast has announced today a global partnership with Nuix, the leader in intelligent email archive migration tools. This technology integration means Mimecast can now migrate quickly large volumes of user data from an enterprise’s legacy archive to Mimecast’s cloud platform. A faster archive migration speeds up the decommissioning of end-of-life archiving solutions, alleviates ongoing hardware and software costs, and helps customers overcome in-house scalability and performance challenges.

The Mimecast and Nuix partnership optimizes the volume of data available, and the speed at which it can be produced for critical eDiscovery and end-user productivity and mobile access requirements. Mimecast can now bypass legacy archive APIs to target data directly, allowing for multiple terabytes of data per month to be ingested to Mimecast storage. A data extraction task that once took months or years can now be completed in days or weeks.

“The vast majority of new archive implementations are in the cloud today. Yet, many organizations are still using the same migration technology that was designed years ago to move data from on-prem to on-prem,” said Rocco Seyboth, global head of Nuix’s Intelligent Migration business. “Enterprises are choosing Mimecast because of their next-generation approach to email storage management, eDiscovery and compliance. We are excited to partner with Mimecast so their customers can benefit from Nuix’s next-gen migration technology, designed specifically for the cloud.”

“For many companies, archived legacy data represents the corporate memory, so it is critical that it be preserved. However, preserving this data set in-house on solutions that are deemed end-of-life is costly, so organizations need another option,” said Julian Martin, vice president of Strategic Alliances, Mimecast.

Martin continued: “The Mimecast and Nuix partnership ensures that human-generated data is quickly migrated to the cloud under one contract. Once an organization is set up on the Mimecast platform, IT administrators and end-users can access data using any device, boosting productivity. With this end-to-end solution, organizations are no longer stuck with the scalability and performance challenges of preserving legacy archives in-house. Now they have a fast and easy migration path to the cloud.”
