Exchange Online Configuration and Support ConsultantsExchange Online is one of several cloud-based applications in the Office 365 product line enabled by Microsoft Azure. Exchange Online offers the advantages of lower investment in physical infrastructure, easier management, dynamic capacity, data protection, and other benefits associated with public clouds instead of on-premises datacenters. Microsoft has engineered Exchange Online to operate transparently with local implementations of Exchange Server, enabling customers to build hybrid information systems. Hybrid environments include local servers and storage with cloud-based products and services to produce a cohesive network.

Typical reasons for integrating local Exchange deployments with Office 365 Exchange Online are adherence to government or industry standards or corporate restrictions that prevent certain mailboxes from being moved off site, throughput requirements related to virtualization or cloud connectivity, the need for more management flexibility, the ability to accommodate certain non-standard or outdated environments, corporate culture, or disaster recovery plans. Also, hybrid deployments are commonly on the critical path for moving smoothly from a local to an Office 365 Exchange Online cloud-centric environment.

Whether you need a temporary hybrid Office 365 Exchange Online deployment on the way to a full move to the cloud or you want to create a long-term hybrid network model, Progent's Microsoft-certified experts can assist you with any stage of planning, configuring, administering, and troubleshooting your hybrid solution.
