Any Truth to the Dell EMC SourceOne EOL Rumors?

There’s not an IT administrator anywhere who wants to hear even a rumor of End of Life (EOL). Still, it happens. You may have been through an EOL before. They can be very disruptive. Often the software or service no longer supported is mission critical. Often IT managers and admins like you get little or no advance warning. You know that while software, hardware, or services may become obsolete or unavailable, your data assets never can be. Data lives a long time and perhaps forever. Technology has never been designed to meet that need. The risk of losing access or control over your data becomes ever more daunting.

Recently, the IT world has been preparing for the possible loss of Dell EMC SourceOne.  As of this writing, there is no official notification on Dell’s website. Even so, now is a good time to consider alternatives. Unsupported email archives create unnecessary risk for your company. It’s better to resolve the issue now, than when you’re facing down an eDiscovery request. In fact, now is a good time to create a repeatable, reliable, rapid business process to protect your past, present and future emails. Whether you are backing up to Dell EMC SourceOne or any other platform, this is a good excuse to review your email backup best practices and consider solution options.

Migrating your email archives can be daunting. Fortunately, resources are available. With the right partner and support, success is assured. This includes moving to cloud or on-prem with full fidelity. A successful migration causes zero user disruption. It is critical to securely migrate your valuable data with chain of custody auditing and reporting.

Where to Start?

Assess with TDS

TDS starts with an in-depth assessment. We create a trust asset report on your instance. If you’re migrating from SourceOne, we are familiar with its issues. We manage SourceOne email variations for each user. We can archive with or without a user filter list. We scan and capture metadata for stub management and organization. We offer journal support. We ensure chain of custody. We can advise you which data to migrate. We offer a defensible solution for data you wish to delete.

Create a Migration Plan

Next, we create a migration plan. You get clear milestones, achievements, and predictable linear cost. We work in collaboration with your different teams. We have a deep understanding of different data formats, compliances, and security requirements. We are quick and agile in the face of the unexpected challenges that often pop-up during migrations. Likely we’ve seen – and resolved – the issue before.
