(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – audriga, the cloud migration company, announces 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.
As of today, 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 audriga service offers a simple and fast migration solution that does not require any upfront software installation.
Cross-Migration across different systems
The extended service now 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. First, they can offer their customers to keep existing data during the onboarding process. Secondly, hosters can more easily migrate large amounts of mailboxes, e.g., when changing their hosting infrastructure.
“To become the future of IT, cloud services must be available in a free marketplace, which ensures can move at any time to the provider of their choice with the best services. With the new auriga service we get a lot closer to this marketplace,” says Rafael Laguna, CEO Open-Xchange.
Open-Xchange partner audriga will demonstrate the migration service at Open-Summit Summit in Hamburg on September 26. A program of keynotes, networking and workshops will deliver exclusive insights into how Open-Xchange and partners are supplying to global service providers and cloud-based infrastructure companies.
