MetaVis Supports Office 365 for Business and SharePoint Online

Written by Inna Gordin. Posted in SharePoint Product News

As of now, all MetaVis migration and administration products support Office 365 for business and take the headache out of moving and managing content in the cloud.

Many companies are planning their SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 upgrade strategies using the traditional database attach approach. The downside to this approach is that it doesn’t work for Office 365, moves a lot of unneeded or unused sites, content, components and customizations and doesn’t allow you to migrate directly from SharePoint 2003 and 2007 without interim steps.

Unlike this database attach method, MetaVis SharePoint migration tool allows users to take full advantage of the new features in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online, such as Shredded Storage to decrease their document storage requirements. By supporting the Shredded Storage feature, MetaVis allows users to migrate only the most recent copy of a document plus any versions that are required under governance policies as opposed to bringing over all the document content and corresponding BLOB files that exists. This reduces storage requirements and improves site performance.
