Quest Software, Inc., has formed a strategic relationship with Microsoft that suggests that Quest GroupWise Migrator for Exchange is an optimal tool for migrations to Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange Online, part of the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).

David Scult, general manager for Microsoft Online Services, said that customers need proven tools to migrate customers from GroupWise to Microsoft Exchange Online. Quest GroupWise Migrator for Exchange will help transition GroupWise customers and their data to Microsoft Exchange Online.

According to Quest, the GroupWise Migrator for Exchange has the ability to decrease downtime and data loss by providing a ZeroIMPACT migration from GroupWise to Exchange, Exchange Online and hosted Exchange. Customers can easily migrate e-mail, calendars, tasks, personal address books, frequent contacts and archives with fewer resources than they thought possible.

“For more than a decade, Quest has helped move nearly 30 million end users to Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite,” said Bill Evans, vice president and general manager, SharePoint and Notes Transition, Quest Software (News - Alert).

Evans noted that with the recent acquisition of Novell, many GroupWise customers are turning to them to simplify their migration to Exchange. “Migrations can be complex, expensive, and disruptive, but through this strategic relationship, Microsoft and Quest will help organizations complete their migrations on-time, on-budget and with minimal risk,” he added.

Quest Software has been involved in helping companies to reduce the cost of managing IT for more than 100,000 customers worldwide. Company was recently in news for announcing a maintenance release of Quest vWorkspace. According to the company, this new release will support the major enhancements in Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
