Thanks for sharing this Dale. I researched the topic and discussed it with our product management team.
They informed me that we just released a “read-only” license for Enterprise Vault.cloud. This will provide our customers with a new option for obtaining historical access to their archived data for whatever time period they require, and it will allow them to avoid the need for one-time extraction fees altogether if they choose.
Potential fees associated with data extraction are stated up front in the service agreement and are often part of the initial sales conversation. I hope this information is helpful to anyone who viewed the thread you referenced. Any further questions, please let us know.
