Exchange Server Migration from Cloud to On-Premises for Global Trade Union

This project involved migrating email to an on-premise solution from a cloud solution that suffered from slow connectivity and was running an older version of Exchange. Client required an on-premise highly available Exchange Server 2010 solution with disaster recovery options to their DR site. The also required Blackberry and Windows Mobile client access as well as access to staff email via webmail and Citrix desktops.

The range of client access options were choosen to support their globally distributed staff and to leverage the installation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Design, build and configuration of the new system, to support 400 staff, took place from their London HQ with a phased migration of users, all the while keeping email flow working to staff that had yet to be migrated.
