Sustained 1 TB/hour Office 365 tenant to tenant migrations
Migrating Large Enterprise Tenants in a Weekend is Now Achievable
After consistently hitting record migration speeds, we think it’s time to announce the world of Office 365 tenant to tenant migration has changed in a big way.
Just last month we celebrated sustained speeds of 500 GB per hour for 15k mailboxes, but last week we hit sustained speeds of over 1 TB per hour in an Exchange tenant to tenant migration.
Changing the game for tenant to tenant migrations
This was not a spike in performance – it was sustained! Based on these new levels of performance, you can now successfully relocate entire ENTERPRISE tenants with thousands of users in a weekend.
Previous best practice was to recommend breaking work teams up based on how they worked together in groups of 500-1000 users. However, with these migration speeds, the need to wave users into migration batches may no longer be necessary for many customers.
This makes tight deadlines much more attainable, but also avoids the potential for disruption to users.
Why does speed matter?
Attaining high migration speeds has always provided better outcomes for our customers by completing the project faster and minimizing user disruption. However, for large organizations running large projects used to migration solutions offering less than 20 GB an hour, this is revolutionary.
The chart below really shows you how speed changes the project scope for organizations. Previously, good performance was characterized by speeds in the low 10s of GB an hour:
We define a migration day as 20 hours to allow for overhead. Using our latest performance record as a guide we can sync an entire tenant in 19.5 hours.
For the example above, this means we can cut over 49 days off a project compared to traditional levels of performance. What can your team do with 49 days back in their schedule?
