    Cloud Email Storage Management FAQs

    How is email cloud storage management different from on-premises storage?

    Traditional on-premises email archiving systems, sometimes described as appliances, usually capture copies of emails sent and received by employees and store them in an indexed database on a physical server at one of your own locations. Cloud-based email archives also capture and index your email but maintain them in a cloud environment. You access what you need through cloud applications; your service provider is responsible for maintaining and securing your content and providing the scalable resources you need to accommodate growth.

    How can you manage email storage more effectively?

    To begin, recognize that email generates enormous — and growing — data volumes. Basic email features such as cc:s and attachments present daunting challenges to organizations that need to meet regulatory compliance requirements or simply control their storage growth. Cloud-based email services change the way organizations provide email, but not the need to coherently manage and safeguard the data it generates. To manage email storage more effectively, companies should consider cloud-native archiving solutions but must also revisit archiving policies to align them with current legal and compliance requirements for retention and accessibility. In addition, seek ways to automate more email management tasks and plan to go beyond email, integrating archiving for content generated by collaborative communications tools such as Microsoft Teams.

    What are the advantages of cloud-based email storage management?

    The cloud-based service model applies extremely well to email storage management. First, cloud providers can scale their services to address accelerating growth in email volumes, so companies can stop throwing expensive storage hardware at the problem. Second, cloud providers offload responsibility for the back-end management of email databases, so their customers don’t have to worry about it any longer and need not replicate service providers’ industrial-strength security. Third, cloud efficiencies generally drive lower cost. Fourth, modern cloud-based archives often provide more sophisticated features for data access and e-discovery, helping companies address litigation, manage risk and get more value from the information they generate.
