January 19, 2012 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – UK hosted cloud services provider Westcoastcloud
, is offering Webroot customers the chance to transfer their email archiving to its BusinessMail service for free after it was announced that the US company would no longer offer email archiving from the end of March.
Webroot customers have to move to offshoot Sonian by the end of February or migrate their data to other providers at a cost of £6.39p per Gigabyte by the end of March.
Westcoastcloud says it will pay the migration cost of £6.39 per GB itself for any Webroot customers who want to transfer their email archiving to its own cloud-based BusinessMail service. The offer of free migration is open to any customers signing up for Westcoastcloud’s BusinessMail services prior to 1st May 2012.
Westcoastcloud director Bill Strain said: “Webroot’s decision to end email archiving in the UK appears to follow a current trend for companies in the IT marketplace to change their business model. This is why it’s so important that when you select a supplier for a service as business critical as data storage, you engage with one that is committed to the UK market and has both the proven expertise and physical hosting infrastructure to support you for many years to come.”
