Nuix Intelligent Migration Eliminates the Biggest Problems When Upgrading to Next-Generation Email Archives
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Nuix, a worldwide provider of information management technologies, has
applied the Nuix Engine's patented parallel processing technology toward
solving the considerable technical challenges of migrating data from
legacy email archives, the company announced today.
In the past six months, Nuix's new Intelligent Migration business
division has recruited dozens of new employees and signed up 31 new
migration partners across North America, Europe, Africa and the
Asia-Pacific region. Revenues for the most recent quarter grew 500% over
the previous quarter.
"Tens of thousands of enterprises will upgrade their email archives and
other information management systems to next-generation or cloud
platforms in the next five years," said Rocco Seyboth, Senior Vice
President, Intelligent Migration at Nuix. "Their choice of migration
technology will have a huge impact on the success or failure of their
Traditional migration technologies rely on an archive's internal
indexes, which are often incomplete or corrupt, and extract data using
the built-in application programming interface (API). This bottleneck
extends migration timeframes to months or years for relatively small
volumes of data.
Nuix's Intelligent Migration technology uses multiple simultaneous
connecions to analyze and extract data directly from archive storage,
bypassing the API. This approach makes the legacy data searchable before
and during the migration and extracts the data up to 20 times faster
than API-based technologies.
Intelligent Migration also helps organizations get smarter about the
data they move or leave behind. The powerful visual analytics platform
Nuix Luminate simplifies the process of identifying redundant, outdated
and trivial data that does not need to be migrated. Organizations can
also prioritize high-value files and emails such as business records and
current legal holds so they can be migrated first.
Nuix's technical and business advantages have sparked intense demand
from customers, service providers and partners such as Proofpoint, which
was positioned by Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2013
Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving.
"With Nuix, our clients can make informed decisions about what data to
migrate and what to leave behind," said Darren Lee, Vice President and
General Manager of Proofpoint's (News - Alert) archiving business. "In most cases, they
are able to drastically reduce the volume of data they transfer,
increasing return on investment and accelerating their time to value in
"Working exclusively through partners such as Proofpoint, Mimecast,
Bishop Technologies and the Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365 partner community we
have a rapidly growing portfolio of migration projects underway, with
data volumes ranging from single-digit terabytes to more than 100," said
Nuix partners are currently using Intelligent Migration technology to
extract data from Symantec (News - Alert) Enterprise Vault, EMC EmailXtender, EMC
Centera, HP Autonomy EAS and others, and migrate it to platforms
including Microsoft Office 365, EMC SourceOne, CommVault (News - Alert), Mimecast and
