Exchange Online Configuration and Support ExpertsExchange Online is one of Microsoft's cloud-hosted applications included in the Office 365 family of products supported by Microsoft Azure. Exchange Online provides the advantages of reduced spending for hardware infrastructure, simplified management, on-demand scale, high-availability, and other advantages inherent with public clouds vs. local datacenters. Microsoft has designed Exchange Online to work transparently with local deployments of Exchange Server, enabling customers to create hybrid environments. Hybrid networks include local resources with cloud products and services to produce a unified network.

In addition, hybrid deployments are often on the critical path for moving smoothly from an on-premises to an Office 365 Exchange Online cloud-based environment.

If you need a transitional hybrid Exchange Online implementation on the way to a migration to the cloud or you intend to build a long-term hybrid ecosystem, Progent's Microsoft-certified experts are available assist you with every stage of planning, integrating, managing, and debugging your hybrid solution.
