Microsoft 365 Integration with On-premises Environments ConsultingMicrosoft Exchange Online is one of several cloud-hosted applications delivered through Microsoft 365 (formerly branded Office 365). Exchange Online offers the advantages of reduced investment in physical infrastructure, simplified administration, on-demand scale, high-availability, and other benefits associated with public clouds. Microsoft has made a strong effort to enable seamless hybrid environments for Exchange, as well as for Skype for Business and SharePoint, all of which take advantage of Microsoft Azure's vast cloud infrastructure. Hybrid environments are networks that combine on-premises servers and storage resources with cloud platforms and services to create a cohesive IT solution.

Common motives for integrating on-premises Exchange deployments with Microsoft 365 Exchange Online include compliance with regulations or policies that prohibit certain mailboxes from being moved off premises or that require special on-premises filtering, performance issues involving virtualization or cloud latency, the need for more flexible management control, the ability to support various non-standard or legacy systems, corporate culture, or disaster recovery strategies. In addition, hybrid deployments are typically on the critical path for migrating smoothly from an on-premises to an Microsoft 365 Exchange environment.

Whether you need a temporary hybrid Microsoft 365 deployment to carry out a migration to the cloud or you want to create a long-term hybrid ecosystem, Progent's Microsoft-certified consulting team can help you with any phase of designing, integrating and troubleshooting your hybrid solution. Progent's Exchange consultants can provide as-needed expertise to help you through stubborn technical bottlenecks and also offer comprehensive project management outsourcing or co-sourcing to make sure your hybrid Microsoft 365 initiative is completed on schedule and on budget.
