Original Press Release:
Metalogix Introduces 'One-Hop' Migration for Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint or SharePoint Online
New Metalogix Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders Simplifies and Expedites Public Folder Migration to SharePoint Online with Complete Data and Metadata Preservation
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Metalogix Software, a leading provider of solutions for Microsoft SharePoint migration, management, and archiving as well as Exchange® migration and archiving, today announced Metalogix Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders. The new product simplifies and expedites the migration of Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint by using just "one hop" to either on-premises SharePoint environments or to SharePoint Online within the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS). The new product also supports the complex mapping required to assure complete preservation of data and metadata.
The Metalogix Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders is another component of Metalogix's comprehensive strategy for migrating more types of enterprise content than any other vendor into SharePoint 2007 or 2010. It is the company's fifth BPOS migration offering, joining SharePoint Site Migration Manager, Fileshare Migration Manager, SharePoint Migration Manager for eRoom, and Website Migration Manager, and demonstrates Metalogix's ongoing commitment to supporting organizations adopting the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite. Metalogix provides a suite of software tools and services that allow organizations to quickly try, adopt, migrate and manage on-going operations of their Exchange Online and SharePoint Online environments.
Metalogix is the only company to migrate Exchange Public Folder content into SharePoint Online in one simple operation as well as the only vendor currently certified by Microsoft for use in direct, one-hop SharePoint Online migrations. The new product provides a significant improvement in time and efficiency over alternative two-hop migration approaches. SharePoint and Exchange administrators can also run migration jobs in parallel to shorten migration times even further.
"SharePoint's popularity is driving organizations to migrate content into it from many different sources, including Exchange public folders," said Chris Risley, CEO, Metalogix. "Our new Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders makes this migration both easy and fast for both on-premises and online SharePoint environments. Instead of migrating in two hops, first from Exchange Public Folders to on-premises SharePoint and then from SharePoint to SharePoint Online, users can migrate their public folder data into SharePoint Online in one hop."
Metalogix Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders handles the complex mapping between Exchange Public Folder data types and views, and SharePoint sites, lists, libraries, and metadata columns, while preserving the original data and metadata during content migration. The resulting solution renders views in SharePoint for both the Outlook and Web browser user that are intuitive and easy to use.
Key benefits of Metalogix Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders include:
-- Fast One-Hop Migrations: Migrates public folder content from on-premises Exchange directly into SharePoint or SharePoint Online within the Microsoft Online Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) in one simple operation, with parallelization supported to minimize the duration of your migration project.
-- Multiple Destination Message/File Formats Supported: Migrates email as standard EML or MSG files into SharePoint.
-- Several Connection Options for Exchange and SharePoint: Supports several connection types. For Exchange Server, a MAPI or Exchange Web Services (EWS) connector are provided. For SharePoint, connectors are provided for the SharePoint Object Model, the Metalogix Extensions Web Service (approved by Microsoft in BPOS deployments), and the SharePoint Native Web Services.
-- Outlook-Like Look and Feel for email in SharePoint: Using the Metalogix Email Viewer Webpart optionally installed on the target SharePoint server, users view e-mail in SharePoint with the same familiar look and feel as Outlook.
-- Email-Enabled SharePoint Lists or Libraries: Syncs from Exchange public folders to SharePoint or SharePoint Online on an on-going basis to provide the effect of email-enabled lists or libraries in SharePoint.
The new Migration Manager for Exchange Public Folders supports multiple copy-and-paste options in immediate or batch modes during migration operations. SharePoint and Exchange administrators can schedule batch migration jobs for later execution. The new tool also provides Type Safe Mapping, assuring that different types of Exchange folders are mapped to equivalent SharePoint structures, such as Document Libraries, Task Lists, Contact Lists and Calendar Lists. Administrators can run parallel batch copy jobs within the same instance of Metalogix MMEPF on the same machine at the same time, to improve aggregate migration performance and reduce migration time. It is also possible to install multiple instances of MMEPF on separate machines to further parallelize the migration copy jobs across multiple MMEPF instances.
