Exchange to Office 365 Conversion

Migrate Exchange Servers to Office 365

More and more organizations are looking forward to move to Office 365 environment from their on-premise email application. And why not? Office 365 mailboxes provide you the look and feel of an enterprise-grade email application and at the same time endow you with facilities of the cloud. You can access your emails and calendar from anywhere on the move on any platform such as PC, Tablet etc. But, what puts a spanner into the journey from on-premise email applications to the cloud is the difficulty faced in migrating old mailbox data to the Office 365 mailboxes. This Exchange to Office 365 migration tool solves this problem by facilitating a smooth migration from Exchange mailboxes to Office 365 mailboxes without loss of any data in the process. While migrating to Office 365, new mailboxes can be created in Office 365 right from the application‘s interface. Also, you don’t have to keep the end users waiting for a long time while migration is in progress.

Using this Exchange to Office 365 migration tool, you can perform hosted Exchange migration from on-premise and Office 365 and move mailboxes and public folders from different versions of Exchange Server to Office 365 cloud. Also one can migrate archived mailboxes, Outlook profiles, rules, mailbox properties, limits and permissions etc. from on-premise Exchange to Office 365. This is made possible with the feature - Outlook Folder Permission Migration that allows users to move folder permissions along with the data from source Exchange Server to the destination Exchange Server by mapping user names, SIDs and from CSVs.

 

The process of migration is very simple in this tool. One has to create migration jobs for mailboxes and public folders in its project. One can map Exchange mailboxes to Office 365 mailboxes, can choose the required synchronization options, configure notification settings (to receive notifications regarding the important events of the migration), and specify ‘black out hours’ (time for which migration is to be paused). Also, filtering options can be selected to perform selective migration. Similar jobs can be created for Rule migration and GAL (Global Address List) synchronization. Then one should run these jobs or schedule to run them. After the successful migration, one can use the Profile Manager to update the profiles in Office 365. Also, Exchange Migrator tool presents detailed reports of the migration on its Report Console.
