Office 365 supports Cloud, On-Premises and Hybrid deployment models
In a Hybrid model email artifacts such as attachments, emails, folders, and archives are migrated via Exchange server to cloud, while your AD resources and policies are managed via On-Premises resources. Hybrid configurations can be complex in nature which is why your organization needs a trusted experienced resource to implement and support your Hybrid email solution. Check out the video from Microsoft linked above which describes some of the benefits of the hybrid passthrough authentication methods being used. Their authentication model is a game changer since IT managers can quickly roll out the new authentication policies and employees are no longer required to manage multiple passwords for authenticating to local or cloud hosted resources. While we recommend watching the full video, if you’re chomping at the bit to get to the “good part,” we recommend starting at the 9:00 and 9:30 marks… not spoiling the features 🙂 but they’re Migr8Te’s favorite.
At Migr8Te we have serviced thousands of customers with Hybrid solutions to ensure the right balance between security, resourcing, and cloud portability.
