Migreren van een On-Premise omgeving naar Office365, wil niet zeggen dat er geen plan gemaakt hoeft te worden ter voorkoming van storingen en het verkleinen van bedrijfscontinuïteit risico.

Zoals met bijna iedere grote verhuizing of verandering is er een verhoogd risico op de bedrijfscontinuïteit door een grote kans op onvoorziene storingen en of gebeurtenissen bij de ingebruikname van de nieuwe cloud omgeving.

Lees hieronder verder hoe een veilige transitie voor ieder type bedrijf mogelijk gemaakt kan worden bij de overweging om naar de cloud te gaan. En voor die bedrijven die inmiddels al zijn gemigreerd naar de cloud, kan de email omgeving verder worden geoptimaliseerd tegen storingsuitval en beveiligingsproblemen.

"Zo zal Office365 altijd service/onderhoud uitval hebben…..Het is daarom ook irrationeel om te denken dat uitval nooit zal optreden…Velen maken nu al volop gebruik van cloud diensten. Dus men mag zich dan ook best afvragen, wat gebeurt er wanneer Office365, off-line gaat? Heb ik een plan B?"

Met dank aan Neil Murray, Chief Technology Officer, Mimecast.

De Whitepaper geeft inzicht in:

  • Wat u kunt verwachten bij een migratie naar Office365
  • De te verwachten implicaties indien u volledig vertrouwt op standaard Exchange Online Security
  • De noodzaak voor archiveren van emails en de e-discovery functionaliteit
  • Het verkleinen van het downtime risico bij het gebruik van één cloud provider

Cloud Computing Explained

The term "cloud computing" refers to the on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Whether you are running applications that share photos or support the critical back-office operations of your business, you can benefit from on-demand access to flexible and low cost IT resources.


Six Advantages and Benefits of Cloud Computing



Trade capital expense for variable expense

Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can use cloud computing and only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume.



Benefit from massive economies of scale

By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, cloud computing providers such as Amazon Web Services can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices.



Stop guessing capacity

Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often either end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. With Cloud Computing, these problems go away. You can access as much or as little as you need, and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes’ notice.



Increase speed and agility

In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization, since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.



Stop spending money on running and maintaining data centers

Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers.



Go global in minutes

With Cloud Computing, you can easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.

A Cloud Computing Guide For Small Business


To learn more about cloud computing in small business, checkout the infographic below created by New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Cloud computing is one of the major technological buzzwords of the mid-2010s, and one that is certainly accompanied by no shortage of hype. Cloud usage is often claimed to improve every aspect of technology and computing, with hundreds of firms lining up to declare that they have truly figured out how to leverage this type of computing. Instead of dealing only with empty claims, though, it is better to examine what this type of computing has actually done for the business world. A quick look at what cloud computing is and what it can accomplish may allow you to separate reality from the fiction surrounding cloud computing.

The Vault Is Dead: Why On-Premises Email Is History


The Vault Is Dead:

Why On-Premises Email Is History


Customers are increasingly trading in their old, bloated, expensive on-premises email archives for cloud services. Over time, these last-century technologies will take their place in the history of computing – the world, technology and the needs of customers have simply moved on.






Old, bloated and expensive on-premises email archives are being swapped for cloud services.

Early adopters of email archiving have been staring angrily at their on-premises vault and watching it grow since the end of the last century. As wholly on-premises installations, these solutions were designed to alleviate the long-term email storage problems associated with Microsoft Exchange 5.5 and their rampant PST generation habits. IT departments quickly found that storing email on the primary mail server and stubbing it back to end users’ in-boxes meant their Exchange environment was more stable and efficient.

About 20 years ago, when the concept of an email archive first emerged, IT professionals couldn’t predict what an email archive of the future would look like. They certainly had no idea how large an email infrastructure could get. As users continue to send and receive massive amounts of email, and as attachment sizes continue to grow, old vaults have reached their storage capacity and as a result, demand more new hardware to manage the overflow of data.

The scalability of on-premises archives has been doomed from the beginning, as its growth is at the mercy of allotted IT budgets. IT teams have run out of patience trying to support this now vintage solution.

Then there’s the actual effectiveness, utility and usefulness of on-premises vaults. Historically, email archiving has been the domain of the IT administrator, and in some instances, legal counsel or compliance teams. Generally, the vault would have been deployed to solve either a storage management problem on Exchange, or a compliance and e-discovery problem affecting the business. Neither of these scenarios has any direct benefit for employees whose email is being stored after all – and it is these people who are demanding more of these solutions in today’s corporate environments.

From good to the great -why Office365 needs Mimecast


From Good to the Great – Why Office365 Needs Mimecast



Office365 is positioned by Microsoft as a one-stop-shop, and on the surface looks like something of a panacea for a business looking to outsource email and stop managing an on-premises Exchange server. For many businesses, particularly in the SMB space, it is.

But for larger companies, or those for whom email is a mission critical application, Office365 may not be quite so alluring. In general, Mimecast customers fall into that category – they want to use best practice cloud services to protect email from threats, and store the data in a secure, highly available archive. And amongst our customer base we’ve seen a preference for keeping Exchange on-site – there’s strong interest in Exchange 13 – or moving to a hybrid model with some mailboxes on-site and others in the cloud.


The blockers to Office365 adoption seem to fall into three categories.


Archiving doesn’t offer sufficient levels of compliance and 

  eDiscovery capabilities

Uptime is a concern

Exchange Online Protection may not represent best

  practice email security


We also think a further need will emerge, for a single archive of multiple types of unstructured data, fully searchable both for eDiscovery purposes and for day to day use by end users from their laptops, smart-phones and tablets.
