Email Migration

Our team of highly experienced Microsoft engineers can perform several different types of Email Migration. And we embed this within our Email Consultancy services. This is perfect for existing businesses that wish to move to Office 365 technology. Or for those who want to migrate to later versions of Exchange. As well as businesses migrating from Office 365 to on-premise.

Email Migration from an On-premise Mail Server to Office 365 (Exchange Online)

To migrate from an On-premise mail server, typically a Microsoft Exchange Server is the most common type of migration we perform. And to achieve this, one of our consultants will review your current infrastructure. This way we can establish the best method of migration.  

We’ll establish the best method to perform the migration and we’ll base this upon the complexity as well as several other factors. Which include the quantity of mailboxes and mail enabled objects being migrated. And whether there are public folders, multiple databases, DAG, and Domains being used as well as the mail server architecture. Our Consultants will also provide you with some feedback on your current configuration. As well as possible improvements and suggestions.

Email Migration from on-premise Mail Server to a new Database/Failover

The request to perform an email migration from an on-premise mail server to new databases is generally triggered as a result of recommendation. Or because of an outage or disaster.

It is good practice for businesses, when using an on-premise mail server, to use more than one Database. This is for the benefit of not only evening the load but also because you can use it for Resiliency failover.

Email Migration from on-premise Mail Server and upgrading to a newer version of the Mail Server

If you’re running an old version of Exchange for your Emails and you want to upgrade straight to the latest version Exchange 2019. Or if you just want to upgrade from an older version to a newer version, 2013 to 2016 for example. Then this is something that our Email Migration team here at Proxar IT Consulting can perform.
Below is a table showing direct upgrades and coexistence:

Mail Server Currently running Upgrade / Migrate to:

Migrating from Office 365 (Exchange Online) to a new Office 365 Tenant (Exchange Online)

There are many reasons why you might want to migrate email from one Office 365 Tenant to another. This might be due to a merger or a split, or a change of company name for example. And when it comes to migrating, our email Migration team can schedule, project manage and perform the migration. They provide excellent comms, timelines and downtime. And they’ll work with you at a convenient time for your business. Our team can also provide consulting and advice on how to achieve this.

Migrating from Exchange Online to On-premise Exchange Server

When you use Exchange Online, you may have found that some of the features of on-premise Exchange are no longer available. Therefore you may have decided to move back to an on-premise environment.

At Proxar IT Consulting, we can perform an Exchange Online to on-premise Email Migration. This includes setting up the on-premise Exchange Server should you have previously decommissioned, or never had one. Our email migration team have many years of experience with all the different versions of Microsoft Exchange.
