Alleviating the Hybrid Headache

Moving just a handful of mailboxes from on-premise to Microsoft Office 365 can be a time-consuming and complex task. It’s not surprising staged migrations are such a popular approach for enterprises moving what could be anything from 500 to more than 1,000 mailboxes. But this isn’t a cure-all.

For staged migrations from Exhange 2010 and 2013, most partners think hybrid coexistence is a must. There are several hiccups that make this approach subpar: Complexity with the infrastructure causing set up and configuration to take weeks before the migration can begin, a lack of monitoring and reporting, and data loss and outages during removal of the hybrid server.

BitTitan, the leader in cloud services enablement, overcomes these barriesr with MigrationWiz Enterprise Coexistance. Partners can provide enterprises with all the elements vital to coexistance for staged migrations without a hybrid server within just 24 hours. Furthermore, partners can add on and manage additional services such PST files, archives and public folders seamlessly form the same interface.

Most university IT departments do not have the expertise, budget or resources needed to move what can be tens of thousands of student mailboxes.
