Benefits Exchange Migration

Started by petergroft, February 22, 2023, 02:44:04 PM


Exchange Migration Online comes with your Office 365 or Microsoft 365 subscriptions, so if you're already paying for the mail application, why not use it? By migrating to Exchange Online you will eliminate the need to ever buy or maintain a mail server again. As we discuss below, Exchange Online offers several advanced, enterprise-grade security features, and your employees will be more productive and responsive if they are able to communicate while on the go.

Here are a few more reasons why you should get rid of your on-premise mail server and migrate to Exchange Online.

Access your emails from anywhere
With Exchange Online you can have access to all your emails from anywhere. There are significant productivity gains that can be had from this seemingly simple enhancement. Now you can reply to your customers on the go or respond to emails from your Boss. The best part is that access to your emails is platform agnostic meaning you can be on Windows, Linux, Mac OS or even mobile (Android/iOS) and still be able to see and respond to emails.

Move Some Mailboxes Online and Leave Others On-Premise
Not ready to move your business entirely to Exchange online yet ? Not a problem! Exchange Online provides the flexibility to keep some of the user mailboxes in your on-premises servers and others in the cloud. Hybrid deployment allows you to determine what makes sense for your organization. Perhaps you want to free up resources on your on-premises servers by migrating users with large mailboxes to the cloud.

99.99% Uptime
Microsoft has an impressive SLA that goes up to 99.99% in most quarters which means that you will no longer have to worry about any outages or services being unavailable. Microsoft's huge financial clout enables them to maintain multiple servers in secure locations in different parts of the world, this ensures redundancy so your data is available at all times.

Archive mailboxes
Exchange online allows for existence of archive mailboxes along with user's primary mailbox. Users with large mailboxes can have their old mails automatically moved to the archive mailbox keeping the primary mailbox clutter free and responsive. The contents of archive mailbox can be searched and accessed anytime just as if those emails were still in your main mailbox.

Mailbox Management is a thing of the past.
Most Exchange admins need to keep an eye on a few users with extra-large mailboxes, but with Exchange online, this is no longer the case. 50 GB user mailboxes in addition to shared and resource mailboxes of 50 GB each means that there is very little mailbox management to be done as you get ample room to comfortably send and receive anything.
