Our organization have an archive with mail dating back to the late 90s, and have used their re-engagement with ArcTitan as part of a broader look at the way their business uses email, making a 65% storage reduction. We’ve finished all the archiving now and the mail database is down to 270Gb, it started at over 800Gb
In the past, we tried to manage growth of the database through retention policies, and found it difficult. They found that their users didn’t like retention policies and that when they approached their limits they would go to IT and ask for more. Now with the stubbing process and retention policies the only real growth we’ll see will be growth in users, good from a future and a saving point of view.
