Cloud migration company audriga today announced the availability of a web-based service to migrate groupware accounts from Microsoft Exchange to Open-Xchange.
Available at www.groupware-migration.com, the service allows users to transfer all their emails, contacts, appointments, and tasks from existing Hosted Exchange mailboxes to an Open-Xchange account.
audriga’s migration solution does not require any upfront software installation.
audriga will demonstrate the migration service at the Open-Xchange Summit in Hamburg on September 26.
– Rafael Laguna, CEO, Open-Xchange.
Currently, audriga´s service enables users only to migrate from one Open-Xchange provider to another, which makes it easier for users to switch to another hosting provider or for companies to outsource their groupware server.
The extended service also enables the migration from other groupware platforms such as Microsoft Exchange, Google Apps, or Zimbra to Open-Xchange.
A special feature is the cross migration of user data between different systems. Thus, users are no longer locked into the offering of single providers as they switch easily and fast to their provider of choice at any time using the audriga service.
Hosters can leverage the new service in two different ways:
- They can offer their customers to keep existing data during the onboarding process.
- They can easily migrate large amounts of mailboxes when changing their hosting infrastructure.
