Office 365: To Cloud or Not to Cloud?

Office 365 has many benefits for businesses because of its Cloud-based technology. You can access your email, Office programs (PowerPoint, Excel, Word) from any location or device if you have an internet connection.  Two words come to my thoughts: “mind-blowing”.

There are many advantages for a business to utilize Office 365 but let’s take a look at the top three.

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute (options and benefits)

ExpressRoute overview
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a private connection facilitated by a connectivity provider. With ExpressRoute, you can establish connections to Microsoft cloud services, such as Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365.

Connectivity can be from an any-to-any (IPVPN) network, a point-to-point Ethernet network, or a virtual cross-connection through a connectivity provider at a co-location facility.

Understanding Email Archiving

There comes a time in every email account when your mailbox storage reaches it's limit. In the case of Office 365, used in conjunction with Outlook 2016, the standard threshold is 50 gigabytes. If you've reached the standard threshold and your mail is no longer sending or receiving, you can quickly free up some space by clearing out your deleted items folder.
