Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Migration Overview
Exchange 2016 ConsultingExchange 2016 introduces a simplified architecture that allows a single building block, the Mailbox Server, to be used for deployments ranging from small offices to large enterprises. By merging Client Access server (CAS) roles into Mailbox services, Exchange 2016 simplifies deployment, migration, expansion, administration, and fault isolation. The design assumption behind the multi-services Mailbox role is that ultra-high hardware utilization is desirable and, because of the power of modern processors, possible. The resulting simplicity of design makes it more affordable to configure and easier to manage high-availability (HA) deployments that rely on replication and the HA technology built into Exchange 2016 (such as DAG groups) to create messaging environments with no exposure to single-point failure.

Progent's Exchange 2016 consultants, project management consultants, Cisco CCIE-certified network engineers, and information security experts have for more than two decades provided online and onsite expertise to help businesses of all sizes migrate to current versions of Exchange while retaining as much as possible of their existing hardware resources and network infrastructure. Progent's consultants have worked with every release of Exchange from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2016 and can provide as-needed consulting support or comprehensive project management or co-management to help you evaluate the business benefits of adopting Exchange 2016, plan and implement a non-disruptive migration, train your support staff and other stakeholders to manage and utilize the many features of Exchange 2016, and troubleshoot technical problems. If you currently run Exchange Server 2016 and are interested in upgrading to a newer version of on-premises Exchange Server, Progent can provide Exchange Server 2019 migration expertise.

  • Open Now Midsize Office Computer Service
    24x7 Small Business Professionals

    Progent provides technical services for medium size businesses who have 100 to 250 system users. The medium size company or office has traditionally been an underserved part of the market for network support expertise. The cost structures and support delivery models of large third-party service firms make them excessively expensive for the ordinary mid-size company or small medium business (SMB), which usually has a minimal IT budget with which to support an IT network whose advanced technology and sophistication are often similar to the networks of much bigger companies. Progent's service delivery model, which takes great advantage of online service, virtual office infrastructure and 24x7 server monitoring, dramatically reduces the network support expenses of an SMB while offering the mid-size company with enterprise-level service from professional, IT experts with background in a broad array of midsized business technologies. If your medium size organization or small business is looking for the quality of network help needed by a medium size office without budgeting big-company prices, you need Progent.
