How Vaultastic achieves a 30% lower TCO than on-premise email archiving

Comparing on-premise and cloud archiving on Performance, Scalability and Availability

 On Premise ArchivingVaultastic Cloud Archiving
AvailabilityPoor Business Continuity
Most on-premise email archiving solutions lack a strong availability posture, which includes adequate redundancies, maintenance processes, and a disaster recovery site. They can result in frequent outages and disruptions.
Guaranteed Business Continuity
As a perpetual archive in separate operational cloud infrastructure, Vaultastic is highly available by design. Vaultastic delivers superior data durability (11 9’s), storing immutable copies of your email data in multiple geographically apart availability zones (data centers) of AWS.
ScalabilityLimited by infrastructure and design
On-premise & hosted systems typically lacks the sophistication required to enable scalability for supporting organizational growth and shrinkage without excessive effort and long procurement cycles.
Limitless Scalability
Vaultastic, a cloud-native email data management platform, leverages the cloud’s elasticity and on-demand provisioning capability to create a scalable platform for email archiving.
PerformanceDegradation on increasing workloads
Poorly engineered email archival solutions can create performance bottlenecks resulting in delayed mail extraction and inconsistent access speeds.
Consistent Performance irrespective of workload Vaultastic, the cloud email archiving platform, leverages the elasticity and on-demand capabilities of the cloud to scale up or down aligned to the workload.

Comparing the Agility and Risk aspects of on-premise and cloud email archiving

AgilityRigid Architecture
Rigid, hard-wired configurations based on fundamental building blocks create an architecture, which is not so elastic or malleable.
Flexible Architecture
Atomized components, APIs, and web services allow easy adoption and extension of the system to meet specific business needs.
RiskData lock-in
The lack of a well-defined data exit strategy and poor migration tools in most solutions pose a grave risk of being locked in with the vendor.
Customer-friendly data-exit policy
Open data standards, portable formats, and automated, easy data extraction and transportation tools allow easy data movement, even in bulk.
