The University of Nebraska - Omaha has recently selected Quest Software, Inc., a provider of on-premise and cloud-based email migration solutions, to implement Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365 within the institute of higher learning.
Users leverage Office 365 to simply share documents; view calendars, contacts, tasks and notes; as well as cut costs and save invaluable time.
To minimize impact and avoid disruption to classes, the University wanted to transition 4,200 users and 2,400 mailboxes to Office 365 in a "big bang" migration. To do this, it began an eight-month project using tools from another provider. However, the project couldn't be completed within the required timeframe and therefore UNO sought out Quest's experience and expertise and ultimately deployed Quest Notes Migrator for Exchange.
With this robust solution in place, UNO was able to seamlesslymigrate all 4,200 users, on schedule, with no disruption to other campus e-mail activities. Quest was able to complete the entire migration in less than one month.
Quest Notes Migrator for Exchange offers a ZeroIMPACT migration from Notes to Exchange on-premise, Exchange Online and hosted Exchange. This helps companies to accurately and efficiently migrate e-mail and calendar data with minimal resources, without the risks of downtime and data loss.
In a statement, Andrew Buker, director of Technical Services, UNO said, "Notes Migrator delivered the throughput we needed to complete the migration on time. We were using 10 migration workstations, each running 32 concurrent threads, which is more than recommended, but it worked for us. We were getting only 11-15 MB/hour per workstation with our first provider, but over one GB/hour with each Quest workstation."
At this time, the company has help nearly 40+ million mailboxes move to the cloud.
