Quickening the Quest for Office 365

If you've been reading this newsletter you are probably pretty well sick of hearing me talk about how many Office 365 users I've been talking to. And there is one thing I've learned: Setting up and migrating isn't always easy.

Quest must have been talking to the same folks since it just announced a new migration tool -- although it is pretty precise in focus. This tool moves on-premises e-mail to the cloud, either to Exchange Online or Office 365.

The Azure-based OnDemand Migration for Email from Quest migrates mailboxes for $10 bucks a shot.

While most customers are moving from in-house Exhange, some are hopping off Google Apps, says Michael Tweddle, senior director of product management at Quest.

Quest is also supporting Groupwise through "Coexistence Manager for GroupWise," which lets you run GroupWise (and Exchange) while you're moving to Office 365.
And later this quarter you'll be able to make this move with "GroupWise Migrator for Exchange."

What happens if you don't like Office 365? Quest has services that will move you right back!
