Google Apps for Business has millions of businesses leveraging the power of the cloud to help their employees work collaboratively and enhance productivity. Now we’re making it even easier to migrate email to Google Apps using our cloud-based data migration service.
The data migration service can be configured via the Admin console to connect to your mail server and migrate email over to Google’s Gmail servers. You no longer need to download tools like Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange and install them on local servers. In addition, you can also monitor and track your migration from anywhere by logging into your Admin console.
The data migration service currently works for email. Support for contacts and calendar migration is currently being developed. This type of client-less, cloud-based migration works for migrating from:
- Microsoft Exchange servers that support Exchange Web Services (EWS), specifically Office 365 and Exchange Server 2007 SP1 or higher
- IMAP servers, including Gmail, Exchange 2003 or lower, and ISPs like GoDaddy
