Why Office 365 is a better value than Evernote Premium | PCWorld

Evernote is hosting its third annual Evernote Conference—aptly dubbed “EC3”—in San Francisco this week. Evernote introduced a variety of partnerships and new features yesterday, many of which are very cool, but what you get with an Evernote Premium subscription doesn’t offer nearly as much bang for the buck as an Office 365 subscription.

At face value, those two things don’t go together. It seems like saying that a McDonald’s cheeseburger isn’t as good a value as a Schwinn bicycle. However, Office 365 includes Evernote’s biggest rival—OneNote—along with an array of other products and features that Evernote doesn’t offer.


Microsoft Exchange PST Capture

Microsoft Exchange PST Capture allows you to search for PST files on computers in your organization and then import those files to mailboxes in your organization. PST Capture works with both on-premises Exchange servers and Exchange Online.

This topic provides an overview of PST Capture. For details about how to install PST Capture, see Install PST Capture.

PST Capture is comprised of the following components:

  • PST Capture Central Service   At the heart of PST Capture is the PST Capture Central Service. The Central Service maintains the list of all PST files found in your organization and manages the data as it’s moved to the Exchange servers or Exchange Online.
  • PST Capture Agent   Discovery of the PST files is performed by PST Capture agents that are installed on computers in your organization. The agents also send the PST files they find to the host computer when an import operation is started on the PST Capture Console.
  • PST Capture Console   The PST Capture Console is the interface you use to configure PST searches, specify the target mailboxes for PST files, and track the status of PST import operations and reports. You can also use the console to import PST files stored on network attached storage (NAS) devices, on which you can’t install PST agents.

For optimal operation, you should install the PST Capture Central Service and the PST Capture Console on a dedicated computer, known as the PST Capture host computer.

Communication between the PST Capture Central Service and the PST Capture agents is achieved through a polling mechanism. Each minute, all PST Capture agents poll the Central Service for configuration updates and any pending tasks by default. If necessary, you can change this polling frequency (for details, see Configure PST Capture Settings). When a PST Capture agent contacts the Central Service, it receives any pending actions, such as a PST search or import operation. The PST Capture Agent then sends status updates from previous actions to the Central Service.
