Soarsoft Africa, a specialist in archive, migration, collaboration and messaging services, has recently announced the availability of Binary Tree’s E2E Complete 3.0 which adds support for migrating from on-premises Exchange Server environments to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud. E2E Complete 3.0 is a full-featured solution for any Exchange-to-Exchange migration scenario. In addition to supporting migrations to Microsoft Office 365, it also supports cross-forest (inter-organisation) Exchange migrations, including the migration of Public Folders, as well as intra-organisation Exchange upgrades.
Says Chris Hathaway, Director at Soarsoft Africa, “E2E Complete will remove many of the obstacles businesses face by reducing migration project timelines, increasing accuracy and reducing risk and project costs. This solution is further augmenting Soarsoft’s ‘tool box’ of technologies that assist our customers with their on-site and cloud migration strategies with Microsoft’s technology stacks, particularly around the content heavy Exchange and SharePoint tool sets. ”
Here are just a few examples of the key advantages that E2E Complete offers over the legacy Exchange migration tools.
• E2E Complete installs in about an hour. E2E Complete can be installed, configured and ready to use in about an hour, which is significantly faster than the legacy tools. Plus, E2E Complete automatically compiles almost 100 mailbox and active directory attributes which makes it much easier to organize and schedule a migration.
• E2E Complete migrates mailboxes up to 10 times faster. E2E Complete uses PowerShell to migrate data up to 10 times faster than the legacy tools. Plus, E2E Complete doesn’t force Outlook users that operate in cached mode (offline mode) to rebuild their local mail files after the migration like the legacy tools do.
• E2E Complete automates the communications, management and reporting processes. E2E Complete enables administrators to automate end-users notifications and offer a self-service portal so that end-users can manage the date they will be migrated. E2E Complete also provides a centralized scheduling and management console via a web interface to efficiently manage and report on every aspect of the migration project.
Recently named the “Best Exchange/Unified Communications Product” in the 2011 Best of Connections Awards, B. K. Winstead, a Senior Associate Editor at Windows IT Pro stated that “moving a Microsoft Exchange Server organization is a nightmare for many admins, but a tool like Binary Tree E2E Complete can help soothe those bad dreams.”
