Moving from MAM Public Folders to Office 365

When leading provider of ship broking and consulting services, Lorentzen & Stemoco AS wanted to switch to Office 365, it not only had to migrate folders from its Exchange servers, it had a lot of legacy public folders in an on-premises archive.

Public Folders are often used to collect, organize, and share information within a team or department.

The company has over 1 TB of legacy data archived in Metalogix Archive Manager, with most of this data in public folders including some containing over a million archived items, belonging to staff based in Oslo, London, Antwerp, Geneva, Athens, New York, Singapore and Shanghai.

According to Lars Henrik Folke Ossum, ICT Director to L & S:

We found that migrating our existing archived email and public folders to Office 365 was a complicated project, both from a technological and administrative perspective. Given our long and successful relationship with Essential around mail archiving, we found it natural step for them to manage the entire migration process.
