Server Migrations

If you are running an older version of Microsoft Exchange, Windows Server or Windows Small Business Server, then we can help you to migrate to a newer version on the same hardware (if suitable) or new hardware, to help keep the heart of your network infrastructure running smoothly.

There is no direct path from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2013 without first upgrading to Exchange 2007 or 2010, so if you are still using Exchange 2003, it might be more appropriate to look at Office 365 as a solution, but if not, then there are other ways to bring yourselves up-to-date.

Migrating from SBS 2003, SBS 2008 or SBS 2011 to Windows Server 2012 R2 and Office 365 is often the most suitable path to venture down when moving away from Office 365.
Having performed numerous SBS to SBS and SBS to Windows / Office 365 migrations, we are in a position to help you and your business make the transition.

Depending on the number of users your company has, Windows Server 2012 Essentials may be more suitable, but suffice it to say, SBS is no more and eventually you will have to move away from it to Windows / Exchange (or Office 365) at some point.

Your existing server can be converted from a ‘physical’ installation to a virtual disk image file and then your server can be upgraded with additional disk space and memory if required, then rebuilt using Windows Server 2012 R2 and Hyper-V (with or without a GUI) and then the ‘old’ server installed as a Hyper-V guest and brought back into life as a virtual server.

Having virtualised numerous SBS / Windows Server operating systems, we can help you to grow your network environment without the need to buy new expensive hardware.

Whatever your needs, if you need help moving forward with any server system, IT Eye can help you minimise the pain and frustration.
