What is Exchange Online?

Exchange Online is the cloud version of Microsoft’s popular Exchange Server offering email services, calendar software, and contact management capabilities to businesses worldwide. Previously companies needed to install the Microsoft Exchange Server on an internal server, which required either in-house maintenance or an outsourced service provider. Exchange Online doesn’t need in-house maintenance as Microsoft can take care of all of this. The best part, Exchange Online is available as a standalone service or as a packaged option with Office 365 subscription, including Microsoft Office, SharePoint, and Skye for Business.

We’ll help you learn about the different migration paths you can take, such as staged or hybrid and its architecture.
