Are you seeking information and advice on migrating your email system from your existing on-premise Exchange Server to Office 365? If so, this article is for you.
Are you running Exchange Server 2003?
If so, then you are running your email system on software that stopped being supported by Microsoft in June 2014 and you are probably also running it on a very old server that is out of warranty. Accordingly, we strongly advise you to migrate from Exchange Server 2003 to Office 365 as soon as possible.
Are you running Exchange Server 2007?
If so, we recommend you undertake a two step operation over the next 6 months. Step 1 is to migrate from Exchange Server 2007 to Office 365 over the next 3 months. And Step 2 is to move any other applications running on the physical file-server to a new lower-capacity (and cheaper) server running Windows Server 2012.
Are you running Exchange Server 2010?
If so, your decision on when to migrate to Office 365 is based upon the age of your current server hardware and the expected growth of your user base over the next 12 months. Find out more on when to migrate from Exchange Server 2010 to Office 365.
