Increasing volumes of electronic data coupled with the associated costs of email data storage and management are prompting many companies in the SMB market to consider archiving options. Sherpa Software is committed to offering our customers tools that help them craft an archiving solution targeted to their specific needs.
Here are two examples of archiving scenarios Sherpa has helped our customers address recently:
1.) As part of a phased Exchange implementation, a customer wanted to undertake a complete PST migration. The scope of their project involved locating all PST files on individual user desktop PCs, mapping the mailbox owners to that PST content, then importing the messages directly into the Exchange 2010 Online Archive. Sherpa’s Mail Attender product effectively addressed all of these needs and helped the customer successfully complete the project in record time.
2.) A customer moving to the Gmail platform was searching for an easy way to locate legacy messages and import them using the Google PST tools. Sherpa’s Mail Attender was able to scan network shares and desktops for PST content, then relocate those messages to a centralized share making them easily accessible to the import tool.
Of course for customers who want a practical, reliable and affordable email archiving option, Sherpa also offers a dedicated product: Archive Attender. For many customers, Archive Attender is an ideal solution. Its straightforward architecture and robust feature set make it an ideal choice for SMB customers who are looking for a product that is easy to implement and manage. Sherpa has been hard at work on the next generation of the product, Archive Attender 4, which will be available later this year. Stay tuned to the blog for more information about AA 4 in the next few months!
