PUBLIC FOLDER MIGRATIONS

Seemless, Innovative Migration Solutions With No User Downtime

Migrating Public Folders is not the same as migrating a user mailbox!

Most migration methodologies require that the Public Folder source is disabled prior to building the Public Folder structure at the destination and migrating the content. This results in downtime and very poor end-user experience.

LiquidData can migrate your Public Folders seamlessly with the latest and most innovative solution, allowing you to discover and understand your Public Folder hierarchy before you migrate. This means no user downtime!

Easy Public Folders Migration to Microsoft Office 365 or Exchange Online - Without Downtime!

Benefits of our Public Folders Approach:

Seamless migration without interrupting your end users!

Works like a mailbox migration, where you have the initial migration followed by delta’s until you’re ready to cutover.

Does all of the planning around limitations so you don’t have to - automatically!

Allows the Public Folders content to be migrated without taking Public Folders offline.

Includes ability to filter how much data is moved based on common criteria, such as Date and Message Class.

how it works

Discovery: Scans and documents the current Public Folder hierarchy at the source

Create: Builds the new Public Folder hierarchy at the destination such as Office 365, while taking into account the limitations that exist and planning the buildout, automatically

Migrate: Moves the Public Folder content from the source to the newly built destination

All of this will be done while your users continue to access the original Public Folder hierarchy. We don’t switch them over until you decide to switch them over, just like a mailbox migration.

Most frequent questions and answers

What is the solution ?

Many organizations use the Public Folder feature within Microsoft Exchange, and some have it so ingrained into their day-to-day processes that not keeping them, is not an option. 

This problem is compounded when your organization is considering moving to a new Exchange platform or especially when moving to Office 365. Our Public Folder migration solution allows for an easy way for organizations to discover and understand their entire Public Folder hierarchy AND implement a seamless migration process that allows the current Public Folder environment to stay active while the destination is being built and other data migrated to it. 

There are many limits in Office 365 that need to be accounted and planned for prior to a migration, and our solution does all of that for you!

What is Public Folder?

Public Folder is a feature within Microsoft Exchange that allows your organization to share content or restrict it to certain groups. It also has the ability to mail-enable Public Folders of your choosing, which means that you can assign a generic email address, assign it to Public Folders, and receive email directly to it. Think of Public Folder as a File System hosted within Microsoft Exchange.

Moving Public Folders Appears Easy But It's Not. Here's Why.

Downtime and an End-User Nightmare If Not Done Correctly

At first glance, it’s easy to think that migrating Public Folders is just as easy as migrating a user mailbox. However, that is definitely not the case. Most migration methodologies require that the Public Folder source is disabled prior to building the Public Folder structure at the destination and then migrating the content. For organizations with a small amount of Public Folder data, this outage can be absorbed, but for most organizations, it’s not acceptable and would provide an end user nightmare experience.

Public Folders Have Many Storage Limits

In the case of Office 365, there are many limits as to how you can store your Public Folders, starting with the number of mailboxes allowed and the size those mailboxes can retain. Your Public Folders hierarchy needs to be converted to match those limitations, and most of the time, organizations are left on their own to plan that part
