Not a simulation or calculation. Only a real data move can provide true “know before you go” data.
2-pass model allows for very quick cutover followed by backfill: 30 days now, the rest later
Fastest transfer rates available by migrating multiple mailboxes concurrently


Leave on Friday
Come in on Monday
Go back to work
Limited only by environment
Using only MS supported APIs and processes. No hacks.
Easiest user selection and database assignments. Auto-distribute and/or explicit assignments
Per-user logging and multiple levels of detail. Can send logs and status to SharePoint.
Migration batches can survive a power outage: restart will quickly skip over previously copied data

Priasoft Specific Technical Highlights


Only Microsoft supported technologies/APIs are used
Mailbox migration is highly efficient by connecting to source
AND target mailbox simultaneously




Data copies from source mailbox to target through migration
server’s network interface
No double or triple copy of data (i.e. PST files) and no data is
“left behind” which means no security risks.
Source mailbox is not modified nor deleted – built in safety
net and rollback ability.
Profile updates are done for ALL Outlook profiles, not just
the default profile, including secondary mailboxes.
Priasoft Specific Technical Highlights




No additional infrastructure: no SQL, no Agents, no AD
Schema changes, no secondary LDAP servers.
Nothing “left behind”: once migration completes, the only
thing to “clean up” is to repurpose or power-off the
Migration Servers.
All code is owned, designed, and managed by Priasoft.
Priasoft is NOT automating the Microsoft move mailbox tools
or PowerShell – our process is our own which means better
support, features, flexibility, and performance.
Migration Workshop (Optional)





Priasoft, at request, conducts a 4 day Migration Workshop that
focuses on the details of the migration Plan development.
The workshop helps identify obscure and often missed topics during
Discovery – both technical AND business.
The workshop is done on-site in order to interact with local resources
and environments
The workshop is NOT “product training”, but is migration philosophy,
paradigm, and design specific to the environment.
Tools are discussed, but from a direction of “when” and “where” to
use them in the Plan.
