The CloudMigrator365 tool is used in 74 countries and has moved over 7 million mailboxes, 5.74 Petabytes data and over 80 Billion items with a 99.8% success rate. It has built-in success reporting allowing migration operators and users to see exactly what has happened to every item before the final cut-over.
When moving an organization to Office 365 there is no room for errors or half-measures, you only migrate once and CloudMigrator365 provides the assurance that you get it right.
CloudMigrator365 can be used with quick cutover or full cutover strategies as well as staged or phased cutovers.
The tool migrates from Microsoft Exchange — Exchange 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, SBS and 2016 including other Office 365 tenancies.
(N.B. It is not necessary to upgrade exchange or apply patches, as long as the platform is online and functioning, the tool can retrieve mailbox data. Equally, when migrating from Exchange, you do not need to install expensive and complex server security certificates).
Installed and operated by the administrator, it can be located either on-premises, on a workstation, or cloud infrastructure such as Azure. In each case the administrator has full control over security and operation – at no time submitting access or passwords to third parties.
Many companies, organizations and government agencies have policies restricting the movement of mail data. Cloudmigrator365 can be configured and operated to respect these geographical boundaries so that your migration project is fully compliant with these policies.
CloudMigrator365 only copies data from the source platform to Office 365. This means that until the agreed cutover date, users are unaware and unaffected by the migration process. Checks can be made to validate that all the data has arrived minimizing the possibility of error or failure.
Finally, once the cutover has taken place, the user can either commence using the online version of Office 365 or have their desktop application reconfigured to use the new platform going forward.
No one likes unpleasant surprises!
That’s why CloudMigrator365 is priced per mailbox irrespective of how much data is involved. There are no additional costs depending on data thresholds, and the licence is valid for a year, allowing plenty of time to complete even the largest of retrospective historical data migrations.
One of the most useful features of the CloudMigrator365 tool, is the comprehensive migration report it generates at the end of a run which provides a breakdown of all the data that has been successfully copied. It also shows any exceptions where data could not be moved for whatever reason. These reports can also be generated per user providing reassurance that all their data is now in Office 365.
The tool is applicable to all migration projects – from just a small handful of mailboxes to hundreds of thousands of mailboxes, the tool can be just as effective.
For large migration runs, it is common to spin up multiple instances and run them simultaneously, increasing the through-put as required.
In most cases, the limits are outside of the tool and are found to be the ability of either the source platform to export data or Microsoft’s limit to accept data into Office 365.
CloudMigrator365 goes beyond simple data transport. Options include redirecting attachments to OneDrive for Business, blocking attachments, filtering messages by date or type, or even copying users archived messages directly into Office 365’s archive storage.
