Migrations

Our Office 365 migration services include access to a team of migration specialists who onboard you as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Whether your transformation needs are simple or complex, we have migration options available to help guide your move.

Self-Service Migrations (Free of charge)

Prefer to do it yourself? Our easy-to-use Self-Service Migration tool makes moving email a snap. Migrate your email at your own pace and if you have any questions along the way, we can help 24x7x365 via chat and phone.

Self-Service migrations allow you to easily:

  • Migrate from most email servers or providers to Office 365
  • Easily move contacts, calendars, tasks and notes for Office 365
  • Perform multiple passes per mailbox to help ensure that all data has been migrated
  • Get real-time notifications throughout the migration process
  • Access your migration from any web browser

Rackspace Cutover Migration (Free for up to 250 users*)

Cutover migrations are best when you want to move your entire email system over to Office 365 at once and start managing users from there. To reduce the amount of work involved for you, we provide all of the following with our assisted migration service:

  • A dedicated migration specialist
  • A two-pass migration plan that migrates mail, contacts and calendar data for mailboxes under 50GB each (extra fees may apply for mailboxes over 50GB)
  • DNS guidance for the go-live phase
  • Email client and mobile device setup for end users via one of our unique Rackspace tools

Rackspace Custom Staged Migration

For a more controlled email migration experience, Rackspace can quote on a custom staged migration, where mailboxes move to Office 365 in scheduled batches of users. Rackspace can even assist you with the remediation of any source environment including identity issues before we begin the move. Using a staged migration gives you a smooth transition to the cloud with a period during which your source environment and Office 365 mail deployment coexist.

Rackspace Custom Hybrid Migration*

A hybrid migration offers the best experience for complex email migrations by providing the power of Office 365 mail with the administrative control you’re used to with your on-premises Exchange Server. In a hybrid migration, some of your users can be moved to Office 365 while others remain on-premises until you are ready to move them completely to the cloud. Hybrid migrations require Exchange 2010 or above and you must have full control of your source environment.

Partner-Led Custom Migration

For very large or highly complex migration scenarios, Rackspace works with a set of strategic partners that can provide a deeper level of remediation and migration based on time and materials estimates.

Rackspace OneDrive/SharePoint Migration

Rackspace has a long history of managing complex dedicated SharePoint Server workloads. Our engineers can provide custom migrations from SharePoint Server to SharePoint Online in 365 or from various file storage options to OneDrive, all based on an hourly estimate.

*Free email migration offer is valid for one cutover pass of up to 250 mailboxes to Office 365 and does not include multiple phases or batches of mailboxes, active directory remediation or hybrid migration scenarios.
