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 a decade 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.

Progent can help you create an Exchange 2016 environment based on physical local or collocated data centers, a cloud-based solution, or a hybrid deployment that combines local and cloud-based resources.
