Exchange 2013: Using Third Party Tool to Relieve Migration Headaches

Posted by Juliette Ollagnier on Fri, Nov 22, 2013

Shall I migrate to Microsoft Exchange on-premises or online?
How can I protect my system?
How do I solve my filing requirement?
How can I check Exchange availability and increase performance?
How can I optimize IT resources, while reducing impact on users?

There are so many questions that need to be taken in consideration for any migration project. That's why we organized this week a workshop with our valued Alliance Partners GWAVA and VEEAM at the Microsoft Headquarters in Switzerland. The combination of our offers provides Administrators and IT Managers a solid range of tools to leverage Exchange Migration & Upgrade.

The workshop went very well, and in spite of the fact it was the first day of snow this year, many people attended and benefitted from great speaker presentations. The next Workshops will be held in Germany, read more.

GSX's expertise on migrating and upgrading Exchange comes straight from our customers. Over time, we have learned that migrating, consolidating and restructuring a messaging environment can pose some serious risks if certain aspects of an environment are not under control. As an example, here are the indicators that need to be followed closely during the migration and coexistence period :

  • Validate the load move between source and target environments
  • Track mail routing latency and pending queues
  • Easily update user accounts on both platforms
  • Identify undesired changes
  • Track connections
