Cloud email

What is cloud email?

Cloud email from D8A is mailboxes (email, calendar, contacts etc.) hosted on an Exchange 2016 infrastructure running across multiple servers in Tier 3 UK based data centres. An entire data centre could fail and your email would still be available! The data is stored and backed up in the cloud and updates are performed at the data centre. No need for expensive hardware and software in your own office. Work from anywhere, anytime!

What is Microsoft Exchange online email?

Microsoft Exchange 2016® is the technology that allows D8A cloud email to work. It is tried and tested technology.

Setting up cloud email

If you are starting from scratch and have no data to transfer (e.g. you are starting a new business) then setting up cloud email is simple. We setup all of the mailboxes and permissions and configure your office computers and mobile devices to connect to the cloud email service and away you go. From the very beginning you can be sure that all data you save in the cloud is protected by the best security systems, backed up within 15 minutes and is highly available by using technology such as fail over generators, fail over Internet connections and fault tolerent devices.

Migrating to cloud email

If you already have a system in place, either an existing cloud solution or an on-site solution, then you will have mailbox data that you will want to migrate. D8A start by performing an IT audit so that we know exactly how you operate, and what applications and data you have already. We will liaise with you to know what you wish to achieve and then we take over the process ensuring that we migrate all data and applications to your cloud email environment without any downtime.

Moving office with cloud email

If you are fortunate enough to already have cloud email in place then moving office is simple. No need to worry about moving data or complex equipment such as servers. Simply get an Internet connection in place in your new office, disconnect the computers in your old office, reconnect the computers on new or existing cabling in the new office and you're back up and running. Any devices that are not moving, such as mobile devices, will continue to receive email throughout the move, without interruption. Simple!
