Because of the mission critical nature of email and electronic documents, the idea of moving core productivity products - namely email and office tools - to the cloud seemed like an unlikely prospect even a few years ago. Now, strong offerings from Google and Microsoft have made the switch a reality for many organizations. However, even with the backing of such large companies, these hosted products are not perfect. Like other hosted products, there are still going to be shortcomings in implementation. Luckily, these shortcomings can be overcome, and a hosted deployment can become just as secure, compliant, and redundant as a traditional, on-premise solution.
This paper will discuss the many drivers for organizations looking at moving email to the cloud. It will highlight some of the shortcomings and pitfalls of these hosted solutions and provide important considerations for organizations looking to move their infrastructure to a hosted solution.
