Converting to Global Mailbox in Sterling File Gateway

Global Mailbox provides data storage across geographically distributed locations. Data is replicated between data centers so that if one data center is not available, another data center can continue operations.

After Global Mailbox is installed and configured, Sterling File Gateway partners can be converted to enable Global Mailbox. After a partner is converted in one data center, export the related resources and import them to the other data centers to take advantage of the features and architecture of Global Mailbox.

Important: Producing Partners with Global Mailbox can only send files to Consumers in Global Mailbox, not traditional mailboxes. Producers with traditional mailboxes can send to Global Mailbox consumers or traditional consumers.
