When it comes to upgrades, implementations, migrations, etc., you can plan for months. You can test, test, and then test some more. You can cross every “i” and dot every “t”. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to the end-user experience. Making the transition from one platform to another is as seamless as possible for your users is crucial. When it comes to migrating from Exchange 2003/2007 to Exchange 2010, The Big-IP platform with Access Policy Manager, (APM) can help do just that; make the end-user experience as seamless as possible.
For many organizations, migrating from previous versions of Exchange to Exchange 2010 is not a simple “flip of the switch”. Rather, multiple versions must co-exist as users are gradually migrated over to the new platform. In the video below, we’ll take a look at the Big-IP Exchange solution and how it can be easily modified to provide single sign-on access to the user regardless of which version hosts their mailbox. So check it out and remember; happy users equals a happy migration.
Note: This video assumes a general administrative knowledge of the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager LTM module and familiarity with the Big-IP APM.
