Migrate users quickly and safely to Exchange 2013 and Office 365

MailboxShuttle is an enterprise-class solution for migrating live email systems quickly and safely to Exchange 2013 and Office 365. It is designed to provide maximum efficiency with minimum required intervention.

MailboxShuttle ensures continuous user email access, provides full checks, monitoring and reports, and is readily scalable. It features a user-friendly interface consistent with the entire QUADROtech ‘QUADStack’ migration suite. Chain of Custody and compliance best practice is followed at all times, and a full audit trail is maintained at every step of the migration process.

MailboxShuttle’s proprietary Sync’n’Switch technology uncouples data synchronization from user migration, guaranteeing that users are not interrupted while their email is migrated. Data is synchronized into a temporary mailbox so the switch process can be carried out in the sequence that best suits business requirements (users can be switched by department, for example). This enables migration across Active Directory (AD) forests, helps consolidate email across organizational boundaries, and enables email integration following mergers and acquisitions.

Key Benefits

Comprehensive planning

  • Extensive analysis of information on mailbox sizes, active directory configurations and sites.
  • Automatically accounts for Exchange or Office 365 restrictions.
  • Validates mailbox sizes with a pre-flight check, automatically accounting for Exchange or Office 365 restrictions, depending on migration target.
  • Accurate forecasts of completion times based on previous migrations.

Optimized for Exchange 2013 and Office 365

  • Users can be migrated to Exchange 2013, Office 365 or a hybrid of the two.
  • Migration can be within the same organization or across Active Directory (AD) forests using Sync’n’Switch.

Transparent to users

  • No disruption to user productivity.
  • Dependencies based on permissions can be defined for delegated access (e.g. a personal assistant).

Flexible and scalable

  • Optimized to manage multiple thousands of users, with planning and scheduling tools ensuring best use of resources.
  • Assignable white and black periods for migration process. These take into account mailbox migrations completed each day together with planned migrations, allowing daily tasks to be defined.
  • Robust scripting engine allows for custom powershell scripts to run before the migration starts, after the initial sync completes, and after the migration.  Good use cases are applying Office 365 licensing, enabling Skype for Business, adding additional SMTP addresses, and more!

Robust security

  • Full audit trail maintained and compliance best practice followed throughout.
  • Roles and policies can be defined to control admin access and execution of migration activities.
