Tech Data UK and specialist cloud migration firm Cloud Migrator have teamed up to help resellers through the process of shifting customers away from on-premise email deployments to Microsoft Office 365.
The agreement is backed by Cloud Migrator’s specialist consultancy and engineering team, which has already migrated over 1.5 million users across around 700 customers to Office 365, and will be offered to partners managing installations of 25 mailboxes and over.
The partnership will also handle non-Microsoft platforms, including Google Apps, IBM Domino or Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise and Zimbra, and Cloud Migrator also claims it will be able to guarantee zero user downtime during the set-up and configuration process.
Tech Data’s Dwayne Earl, software category development manager, said the solution could be an ideal jumping off point for resellers without Office 365 experience.
“Email is the one area that customers will want to move across to the new cloud environment immediately and if that’s something resellers have not done before, it could be quite a challenge for them. Using the Cloud Migrator service via Tech Data will make that important task straightforward,” he explained.
“With Microsoft looking to drive sales of Office 365, the agreement with Cloud Migrator is the last piece of the jigsaw. It means that our TD Cloud partners can sell Office 365 with complete confidence.”
