Office 365 Migration Success - Assess, Plan, Prepare, Execute
Office 365 Migration
What will your cloud computing environment look like when you’ve completed your migration?
Cloud computing experts sometimes refer to the “cloud migration” planning process as developing a technology roadmap between your current state and your desired future state. If you don’t go through this “mapping” process and develop answers to key issues ahead of time, you’ll likely create far more business process disruption than desired, resulting in a far more expensive transition.

For migrations from an existing on-premises Exchange Server environment, an administrator can migrate all email, calendar, and contacts from user mailboxes to Office 365.
There are three types of email migrations that can be made from an Exchange Server:
Migrate all mailboxes at once (cutover migration) or Express migration
Use this type of migration if you’re running Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, or Exchange 2013, and if there are fewer than 2000 mailboxes. You can perform a cutover migration by starting from the Exchange admin center (EAC); see Perform a cutover migration to Office 365. See Use express migration to migrate Exchange mailboxes to Office 365 to use the Express migration.
Migrate mailboxes in batches (staged migration)
Use this type of migration if you’re running Exchange 2003 or Exchange more info 2007, and there are more than 2,000 mailboxes. For an overview of staged migration, see What you need to know about a staged email migration to Office 365. To perform the migration tasks, see Perform a staged migration of Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2007 to Office 365.
Migrate using an integrated Exchange Server and Office 365 environment (hybrid)
Use this type of migration to maintain both on-premises and online mailboxes for your organization and to gradually migrate users and email to Office 365. Use this type of migration if:
You have Exchange 2010 and more than 150-2,000 mailboxes.
You have Exchange 2010 and want to migrate mailboxes in small batches over time.
You have Exchange 2013.
For more information, see Plan an Exchange Online hybrid deployment in Office 365.
