Recently, Priasoft unveiled the latest upgrade of its flagship software, Priasoft Migration Suite for email hosting solution Exchange 6.5. The new release not only adds support for Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange 2013, but also includes new mixed-mode migration support for Exchange upgrade scenarios.
"Priasoft continues to lead in Microsoft Exchange migration solutions," said Eriq VanBibber, vice president of Enterprise Messaging Products, Priasoft, in a statement.
Companies heavily depend on e-mail and need migration solutions that enable IT departments to efficiently and safely migrate messaging systems while simultaneously preserving the user experience.
“Our support for Exchange Server 2013 and for mixed-mode based migrations will enable companies to migrate more quickly and easily, and facilitate ongoing management of those systems," VanBibber added.
Major improvements in the newly debuted edition include enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange 2013 due to the fact that with this release, one can migrate from Exchange 5.5, 2000, 2003, 2007 or 2010 directly to Exchange 2013. In addition, users can now migrate while in Exchange mixed-mode between 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013 and enhanced Dry Run mode support for both cross-forest and mixed-mode based migrations.
Dry Run mode is a unique Priasoft feature that allows customers to fully test and obtain accurate metrics about their migration prior to actually doing them live in production.
Back in September, the company released an update to its product supporting GAL synchronization for Exchange 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010, and now 2013.
The Priasoft Collaboration Suite for Exchange provides Global Address List (GAL) synchronization and enables simple free/busy replication via the Exchange 2010 or 2013 Availability Service. With the Collaboration Suite for Exchange, end users experience a single view of GAL information even if some users are in separate Exchange organizations.
This capability is particularly useful during mergers and acquisitions or during coexisted Exchange migrations. In this updated release, customers can perform GAL synchronization with Exchange 2013 which is currently available as a preview release and will be fully supported when it RTMs. This allows customers to start evaluating Microsoft Exchange 2013 in preparation for its upcoming final release.
