Exchange Online Configuration and Support ConsultantsMicrosoft Exchange Online is one of Microsoft's cloud-hosted applications included in the Microsoft 365 family supported by Microsoft Azure. Exchange Online offers the advantages of reduced investment in hardware infrastructure, easier administration, on-demand scale, high-availability, plus other advantages associated with public clouds vs. on-premises datacenters. Microsoft has designed Exchange Online to operate seamlessly with on-premises deployments of Exchange Server, enabling you to create hybrid environments. Hybrid environments include local resources with cloud services to produce a cohesive network.

Also, hybrid systems are often implemented for moving safely from a local to an Exchange Online cloud-based environment.

Whether you need a temporary hybrid Exchange Online deployment to carry out a full move to Azure or you want to build a robust hybrid ecosystem, Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants are available assist you with every phase of designing, configuring, administering, and debugging your hybrid solution. Progent's Exchange consultants can deliver occasional expertise to guide you through challenging integration issues and also can provide end-to-end project management outsourcing to make sure your hybrid Exchange Online implementation is performed on schedule and on budget.
