It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s actually Binary Tree!March 18, 2015
Come hear about Binary Tree’s amazing migration feats at our upcoming webinar on March 24th, “Lessons Learned”, where we’ll delve into three client case studies that have significant takeaways. Read the synopsis that follows.
Hold the pickles; hold the lettuce. At Binary Tree, special orders don’t upset us. When a multi-platform, multi-national media company was combining several entities into one, they turned to Binary Tree. Having previously been a satisfied customer, they knew we could handle their special requirements. This client had tried to move some of their own users but ran into throttling limitations on their servers, as can frequently happen with migrations to Microsoft Office 365. This time, the client asked for a SMART Managed Migration, where Binary Tree used a virtual machine in our own data center and a remote control workstation with a VPN connection on the client side to perform the migration. Lesson learned: leave the migration to us!
While we’re on the subject of having it your way…Binary Tree is engaged in another very large and complex consolidation project where 43 entities, representing 500,000 mailboxes, current on three platforms, are involved. This project started a few years ago when Microsoft released Exchange 2013 with tight limits on the number of public folders that an organization could have. At the time, our workaround was to migrate public folders to Exchange 2010 and to migrate mailboxes to Exchange 2013, but now we’re using 2013 for both mailbox and public folder migration (Microsoft raised the size limits in the interim). The real challenge was that there were quite a few remote and offshore locations that did not have an adequate Internet connection to move all of the content from their users’ mailboxes. A single mailbox might have taken three days to migrate, which was out of the question for its business. Binary Tree’s tech team was not discouraged! Using our transport expertise—originally developed for our IBM/Lotus Notes solutions and honed further for Exchange-to-Exchange migrations—we created an entirely new product to handle the transport of very large mailboxes in remote locations with poor bandwidth. This is a case of addressing not only one client, but also an unmet industry need, with a creative, business-focused solution. Now, all of this organization’s users can be migrated in a similar fashion… and you can imagine how happy this makes our client.
