Update!! – Exchange Server Deployment Assistant for Exchange 2007 and Office 365 Coexistence

This entry was posted by on Thursday, 28 April, 2011 at

The Exchange Server Deployment Assistant has been enhanced to include support for configuring
rich coexistence for organizations interested in maintaining some users
on-premises with Exchange 2007 and some users hosted by Microsoft Office 365
Beta for enterprises in the cloud. This scenario is in addition to the existing
support for configuring rich coexistence between on-premises Exchange 2003
organizations and Office 365 Beta. The coexistence information is only available
in English at this time and additional rich coexistence support for Exchange
2010 will be added the Deployment Assistant soon.

Rich coexistence (“hybrid deployment”) offers organizations the ability to
extend the feature-rich experience and administrative control they have with
their existing on-premises Microsoft Exchange organization to the cloud. It
provides the seamless look and feel of a single Exchange organization between an
on-premises organization and a cloud-based organization. In addition,
coexistence can serve as an intermediate step to moving completely to a
cloud-based Exchange organization. This approach is different than the simple
exchange migration (“cutover migration”) and staged Exchange migration options
currently offered by Office 365 Beta outlined in E-Mail
