Exchange Online Configuration and Support ConsultantsMicrosoft Exchange Online is one of several cloud-hosted applications in the Microsoft 365 product line supported by Azure. Exchange Online offers the benefits of lower spending for physical infrastructure, simplified administration, dynamic scale, data protection, and other benefits inherent with public clouds vs. local datacenters. Microsoft has engineered Exchange Online to work seamlessly with local implementations of Exchange, enabling you to build hybrid information systems. Hybrid environments include local servers and storage with cloud services to produce a unified IT solution.

Common reasons for integrating local Exchange installations with Microsoft 365 Exchange Online are adherence to regulatory mandates or corporate policies that prohibit specific types of mailboxes from being located off site, throughput requirements associated with virtualization or cloud latency, the need for more administrative flexibility, the need to support various home-grown or outdated environments, corporate culture, or business continuity strategies. Also, hybrid systems are often implemented for migrating smoothly from a local to a Microsoft 365 Exchange Online cloud-centric model.

Whether you want a temporary hybrid Exchange Online implementation on the way to a full move to the cloud or you want to create a long-term hybrid ecosystem, Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants are available help you with any facet of designing, integrating, managing, and debugging your hybrid solution. Progent's Exchange experts offer occasional expertise to help resolve challenging integration issues and also offer comprehensive project management outsourcing or co-sourcing to ensure your hybrid Microsoft 365 Exchange Online implementation is completed on time and on budget.
