With the continued growth of companies with both on-premise Exchange environments and Office 365 Exchange Online, many companies are deploying a Unified Exchange Environment between both platforms for rich coexistence. Benefits of a hybrid environment include:

  • Exchange Online users and on-premises users can share free/busy calendar.
  • Secure mail routing between on-premises and Exchange Online organisations.
  • Administrators can use powerful and familiar Exchange management tools to move users to Exchange Online.
  • OWA redirection allows for redirection from the on-premises environment to the Office 365 Outlook Web App environment.
  • MailTips, out-of-office messages, and similar features understand that Office 365 and on-premises users are part of the same organisation.
  • Delivery reports and multi-mailbox search work with users who are on-premises and those working in Exchange Online.
  • Authentication headers are preserved during cross-premises mail flow. So, all mail looks and feels like it is internal to the company (for example, recipient names resolve in the GAL).
  • With the help of Directory Synchronisation you get Unified GAL.
  • If necessary, administrators can easily move mailboxes back to the on-premises Exchange environment.
  • Cloud-based message archiving for on-premises Exchange mailboxes.
  • Administrators do not have to manually reconfigure Outlook profiles or resynchronise.OST files after they move users' mailboxes.

This unique 3-day course is for delegates who are interested in both learning and getting hands-on experience of deploying an Exchange Hybrid Configuration.

Delegates should meet the following pre-requisites:

  • A familiarity with Messaging basic concepts, eg SMTP, messaging Connectors, mailboxes, public folders
  • A familiarity with the Exchange Admin Center (either On Premise or Office 365)
  • A familiarity with concepts of Cloud environments and Office 365
  • A knowledge and understanding of basic networking concepts, eg TCP/IP, DNS name resolution
  • A knowledge and understanding of basic Powershell concepts and command structure.

If Students do not have this knowledge, they can obtain these skills for free by watching the following videos from Microsoft MVA:

Instructors will demonstrate features throughout the event. Optional Lab exercises are available for students to complete within a free commercial Microsoft 365 tenancy provided free of charge for each student by QA. This tenancy lasts for 30 days but can be extended free of charge for another 30 days.
