As the Hebru quote goes – troubles come in packs. As more emails & cases were added over time, it soon started competing over ‌storage space in Salesforce. The sales reps are at their wit’s end as they have already reached 90% of Salesforce’s ‌data storage limit. Lawsons added 15 new customers this week and soon they will start emailing inquiries to their associates. It’s only a matter of time before they have to upgrade their data storage in Salesforce. 

As they were already paying to maintain Salesforce connectors for the conjugated systems. The immediate suggestion was to have a custom-built process that could make use of the Salesforce connectors and move the data immediately to secondary storage and restore the org back to life. But setting up an archiving process via Salesforce- AWS Integrated channels can take weeks or even months.
