Knowing when it's time for Exchange mailbox migration

Sponsored by SearchExchange.com

The end-of-life moments for older versions of Exchange are coming (and have come already for some versions), coinciding with the release of Exchange Server 2016. While some organizations may make the jump to the newest release, a number of companies will move to Exchange 2013. Others may be interested in Exchange alternatives.

This three-part guide outlines the Exchange 2016 requirements and the benefits to be found in this latest version. It also delves into strategies to plan an upgrade to the recent versions and suggests ways to avoid errors that could arise during an Exchange mailbox migration. Exchange 2010 users, for instance, will have a much different upgrade path than those running Exchange 2003.

Exchange Server 2013 simplified administration, better managed availability and improved Outlook Web app access on any device among other improvements. Exchange 2016 makes further improvements. There are third-party Exchange migration tools that may be needed to migrate to Office 365. So, the questions become what does your organization need from Exchange -- and when?
