Native Notes archiving has advantages - it's easy to manage via Policies, it moves a lot of data quickly, and it's free.
What it isn't so good at is providing tools, such as letting users find and use their archived data, or reporting what's actually happening.
To improve this, the IONET Archiver for Notes now optionally adds our toolkit to the native archiving process, giving you a better archiving solution.
Simultaneous Searching across ALL Mail & Archive Databases via Notes, iNotes (including Mobile) or Browser, making it easy for users to find and use their data, regardless of its location.
For example, users could search across 5 archives for all mail they sent to acme.com in the last 10 years, then copy selected results to another database.
Discovery Search across all Mail & Archives, for Admins, Power Users, Legal Departments etc. In this case any user with sufficient access could quickly find all mail sent from your organisation to acme.com in the last 10 years, then export results to PDF.
The ability to natively archive Mail-In Databases, which is not normally possible.
User Functionality like 'Archive Selected Documents', 'Restore Documents', and 'Open Archives'. You choose what options to deploy.
Reporting and Charting of Archiving performance, e.g. the Volume of data archived, Number of documents archived, Archive Database sizes, ratio of Archive to Production sizes etc.
Tools to migrate local User Archives to a server-based system for backups and disaster recovery.
Administration Tools such as ACL Synchronisation, restricting access to Archive Databases (to preserve data integrity), Archive Database naming, Archive Database moving etc.
