Migrate, Consolidate or Relocate Office 365 tenants
What’s the Problem with Tenant to Tenant Migrations?
Migrations across Exchange Organizations have always been a difficult project for companies. This is when they had full control of the servers and methodology to do so. With the explosive popularity of Office 365 this problem still exists, but there is even less control for companies to accomplish these difficult tasks.
Companies have many reasons why they would need to move data between Office 365 tenants.
- It could be that they have grown through mergers or acquisitions.
- It could be previous technologies dictated or required that they have multiple tenants.
- Some companies adopt Office 365 over time and not in a centralized manner.
- Some need to move from one region to another for compliance and regulation reasons.
Whatever the reason, having multiple tenants is highly inefficient, complex, and can be very troublesome for the end users. Migrating, consolidating or relocating Office 365 tenants might seem like a huge, complicated project, but our latest solution Cloud Commander can enable you to manage the process quickly and intelligently, minimising the disturbance to your end users and your business.
Cloud Commander enables collaboration between Office 365 tenants and delivers a systematic, structured approach for migrating mailboxes between tenants. The solution provides fast data transfer of both online and archive mailboxes with excellent data fidelity, and once the migration is complete, the tool will automatically update the end user’s Outlook profile to the new mailbox, delivering a smooth end user experience. The full migration is orchestrated in a modern user interface, that’s clearly presented, and easy to use.
Cloud Commander runs primarily in your Microsoft Azure environment. This means that your data does not leave the confines of your environment. It allows for the update of both source and target on-premise Active Directories objects to facilitate the migration and coexistence for those in a hybrid deployment. For those who have a cloud only deployment, Cloud Commander can provide the same feature set.
Once deployed, source and target mailboxes are matched and entered into a migration wave. These migration waves are then scheduled to move mailbox data. Once enabled for migration, Cloud Commander utilizes Quadrotech’s AIP technology to facilitate the fast transfer of data. Once data has been migrated, mailboxes are completed or “switched”. This means that Cloud Commander will adjust Active Directory, Azure AD, or Exchange Online objects to complete the migration, and enable coexistence. Finally, a workstation agent will be triggered to update the end user Outlook profile.
