Transend Delivers E-Mail Migration for Lotus Foundation
January 19, 2010 Alex Woodie
Lotusphere is being held down in Florida this week, so that means a revival of the annual e-mail and collaboration wars between IBM and Microsoft. It also means vendors will start ramping up new releases of tools for migrating between the two major e-mail systems. The new migration software from Transend is a good example.
Transend is no newbie to the e-mail migration gig, or general e-mail product development, for that matter. In fact, the Silicon Valley firm has been developing e-mail clients and utilities since it was founded in 1983, and claims to have successfully migrated more than 10 million e-mailboxes using its Transend Migrator software over the last 10 years.
Last week, the vendor announced a special edition of its established Transend Migrator software that’s targeted specifically to customers moving to the Lotus Domino server and Lotus Foundation, a pre-configured, appliance-based version of Notes/Domino that IBM launched more than a year ago to help get small and medium-sized companies up and running quickly, without requiring a lot of technical expertise.
Transend Migrator for IBM Lotus Foundations allows users to move their e-mail messages, address books, calendars, tasks, and archives from any e-mail system to Lotus Foundation. Users can move the data mailbox-by-mailbox or migrate mailboxes in bulk from a command line batch processor. The software also includes a GUI, and batch templates for competing products, like Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise.
