Email archiving solutions have been developed by many cloud service providers, but prices can vary considerably between products, even between products that include a virtually identical set of features. Finding the best value email archiving solution for your business can be a challenge.
While the difference in price may only be a dollar or two per user, when multiplied by the number of employees in the organization the cost difference can be of the order of several thousand dollars a year.
To help you get the best possible price on email archiving, we have created a 2019 email archiving price comparison grid. The grid includes some of the leading names in email archiving and gives a typical price per user per month and per year, along with the total annual cost for a business with 100 mailboxes. The prices were taken from price lists available on 04/05/2018.
As you can see from the grid, TitanHQ’s email archiving solution, ArcTitan, is very competitively priced and is an affordable solution for most businesses. Being cloud-based, an email archive is quick and easy to set up and no hardware or software is required.

Why do I need an archive if I backup my email?
Backups and email archives are not the same. Backups protect against catastrophic failure and allow mailboxes to be restored to a certain point in time. You cannot easily search a backup, so recovering emails can be an incredibly labor-intensive and time-consuming process and backups may not be adequate if emails need to be provided for court cases.
Are there any hidden email archiving costs?
One ‘hidden’ cost with many email archiving service providers is the need to continue to pay for archiving for all mailboxes, even if an employee leaves the company. Over time, that cost can build up, especially if you have a high staff turnover. With ArcTitan you only pay for the number of active mailboxes and you also benefit from very competitive email archiving pricing.
Is hosted email archiving pricing more expensive than on-premises?
That will largely depend on the number of mailboxes and email volume. For most businesses, once storage space, IT support and maintenance, and backups are factored in, hosted email archiving is usually the most cost-effective and easiest option. Hosted email archiving can be paid for monthly and there are no start-up costs. With on-premise archiving you need to purchase and implement the hardware and software.
What else should I consider when selecting an email archiving service provider?
Our email archiving service cost comparison includes the major providers of cloud-based email archiving for businesses and MSPs as a guide to show you the cost savings. You also need to consider how easy the solutions are to use and how quickly messages can be found in the archive. We are convinced you will love the performance of ArcTitan, which is why we encourage you to take advantage of the free trial.
