Email archiving for exchange 2013 advice
Posted on 2014-08-15
We are currently performing a long over due infrastructure upgrade on our aging network. On the network we have around 500 users all of which are mail enabled
As part of this process we are upgrading from exchange 2003 to exchange 2013 our OS will be 2012 running on a hyper v environment.
Currently we archive all our emails using GFI version 5.x which is old we find this product does the job but unfortunately is unusable for end users when it comes to retrieving emails. So we find putting anyone of from trying to retrieve emails unless it is something serious like court... We think this slowness problem may be down to a fault of our own were we didn't split the GFI databases by year and subsequently have databases containing 5 years worth of information.
We are looking to here from anyone that has had experience with the various archiving products to see if there is any they would recommenced.
GFI 2013 is a strong candidate as we are told it leeps and bounds above what we are using (and the cost of the product is also very attractive compared to exchange 2012 native archiving ) has any one been down a similar route or have any recommendations of a good archiving solution?
