The following post includes many useful links to: articles, videos, PowerShell scripts and tools that relate to the subject of Hybrid environment and Hybrid Migration process (migration from Exchange on-Premises server to Exchange Online) in Office 365 and Exchange Online environment.
Exchange Hybrid Migration | Office 365
Office 365 offers a variety of methods for mail migration. Each of the mail migration methods is designed for specific organizational needs and structure.
The best practice is to understand the difference between each of the mail migration methods and after choosing the most appropriate migration method, implement the migration process as a workflow that includes steps such as: Learn, plan, deploy, verify, troubleshooting and so on. Various former times in which there was no much written information about the method of Hybrid Migration, in the current time, the main issue is related to the phenomena of TMI (Too Much Information) and, the main task is: how to find to the most relevant information from the Microsoft (and other such as mine) web sites.
To be able to save your precious time, I have collected many relevant sources of information that relate to Hybrid Migration. I hope that the following links will help with the task of implementing Hybrid Migration.
