With compliance and other requirements necessitating the elimination of loose PST files, companies are burdened with moving this data to a centralized repository in a timely, secure and cost-effective manner. However, PST files are often dispersed throughout an organization’s network making them difficult to manage, locate and access.
In this case study, we explore a migration for a domestic healthcare manufacturing company, who had 6,000 users and approximately 50,000 PST files. This totaled to more than 150 TBs of data that needed to be filtered and moved to an on-premises Microsoft Exchange server. In order to automate the PST migration, the organization deployed Sherpa Software’s Mail Attender for Exchange. This paper discusses the phases of this project and how to monitor the ingestion.
