Choosing an Exchange migration to Office 365 is just the beginning of this process for administrators. Migrating all the content, troubleshooting the issues and then getting the settings just right in a new system can be overwhelming, especially with tricky legacy archives.
Even though it might appear that the Exchange migration to Office 365 is happening everywhere, transitioning to the cloud is not a black and white choice for every organization. On-premises servers still get the job done; however, Exchange Online offers a constant flow of new features and costs less in some cases. Administrators should also consider a hybrid deployment to get the benefits of both platforms.
Once you have determined the right configuration, you will have to choose how to transfer archived emails and public folders and which tools to use. Beyond relocating mailboxes, administrators have to keep content accessible and security a priority during an Exchange migration to Office 365.
This guide simplifies the decision-making process and steers administrators away from common issues. More advanced tutorials share the reasons to keep certain data on premises and the tricks to set up the cloud service for optimal results.
