Before start discussing with the topic, firstly the users must clear about the terms exchange server and office 365. Microsoft exchange server creates an exchange data file (EDB) which is used to store the mailboxes data include emails, calendars, notes, contacts, etc. Whereas, in the same way, Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based software that provides various services such as hosted exchange server, Skype for Business server, Share points and does more than just managing emails. Therefore, the users are planning to migrate from exchange server to Office 365. Below, there are also some other features behind migrating. 1. MS Office 365 is a subscription-based purchase service. It means the users need to spend money as per the subscription chart like annually; half-yearly or monthly depends upon the requirement. 2. Another important feature is that it holds the power of universal accessibility. So that one can easily access the mailbox through any device and at any time. 3. It is much more secure and reliable. After planning of migration of exchange to Office 365, the users come with the problem of how to migrate exchange to Office 365. To overcome this issue, it is suggested to use the migration methods. There are 4 types of methods. Let’s start introducing them sequentially. 1. Cutover migration: can be used when one wants to migrate mailboxes less than 2000. It can support exchange versions 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. 2. Staged migration: can be used when the users want to migrate mailboxes more than 2000. It can only support the exchange 2003 and 2007 version. 3. Hybrid migration: It can migrate the mailboxes between 150-2000 by converting them into small batches. Only support the 2010 and 2013 exchange versions. 4. IMAP migration: fails to migrate anything other than email and message. Hence, these unprofessional, risky and time-consuming methods fail to migrate the Exchange server to Office 365. Therefore it is suggested to use an automated tool named Shoviv Exchange Server Suite. The tool provides various outstanding features to its users as it provides a user-friendly interface to the users. The tool offers a very efficient way to migrate from Exchange to Office 365. Additionally, the tool provides a complete backup and recovery solution to the users. Even also, it permits the users to get a preview before the conversion process. The software is also capable of adding multiple mailboxes and exports it into various formats such as PST, MSG, EML, Office 365, Live Exchange server, HTML, etc. Before purchasing SHOVIV software, it provides the facility to the users to test the free trial version of the software.
