New Coexistence Platform

First of all, we want to thank you for being a valued customer of Cloudiway and an active user of the Coexistence platform.

We inform you that our former Coexistence platform will become obsolete by the end of the year.
Cloudiway invites you to upgrade your Coexistence account to the new platform if you have not already done so.

You must upgrade your account before December 31, 2019. After this date, this platform won’t be available anymore.

If you want to use the former version of the platform until the end of its availability period, please note that the support will be discontinued on October 31, 2019.

If you are a Cloudiway customer, you should have received a notification with instructions for upgrading.

SharePoint, OneDrive migrations – Say Hello to New Cloudiway Platform ! You asked, We listened !

All good things must come to an end… and be replaced with something way better!

Customer satisfaction is always the number one priority for us. In 2018, we noticed slowness and service availability issues from Microsoft for OneDrive and SharePoint migrations with a performance degradation due to more throttling policies.

As a result, our customers and partners migration performance suffered significantly.

In response to these aggressive changes and to help alleviate any concerns that you may have had regarding migration speeds, our developers worked hard to switch to Microsoft Graph APIs for SharePoint and OneDrive products. The central benefit is the drastic performance gain compared to overcome limitations of CSOM massive lists of endpoints.

This new version is not inconsequential on projects with immediate effect on current customer configurations.

The configuration as it has been until now is no longer compatible with the technologies used, mainly as it requires Graph permissions.

We invite our customers to work closely with our agents from the support team to ensure a proper configuration of the Cloudiway platform.

Microsoft Teams Migration

Microsoft Teams is a cloud collaborative place where the members of your organization can cooperate, work as a team, and have conversations, all in one place.

Microsoft Teams is built on Office 365 Groups. Creating a Team creates an Office 365 Group with the membership you chose to designate. In the same way, these Groups create a number of workspaces in other Office 365 Apps, such as plan in Planner and a site in SharePoint.

Microsoft Teams is the right place to do simultaneous work, therefore more and more organizations are using Microsoft Teams as their new workspaces in Office 365. Cloudiway has developed the first migration tool that allows you to migrate Microsoft Teams from one Office 365 tenant to another, to help businesses to run fast and easy migration of your Microsoft Teams data.

We are proud to announce that at this time, the Cloudiway migration platform is the only tool on the market that allows businesses to move their Microsoft Teams smoothly from one tenant to another. It is now supported and available at apps.cloudiway.com

Systems supported by Cloudiway that are not supported by Microsoft FastTrack Center

Don’t forget any items during your move

Google Vault: G Suite Vault data archive can be migrated.

Google Sites: Migrate Google Sites structure and data to SharePoint Online.

Google Labels: Labels are tags that you can apply in Gmail to emails to categorize messages the way you want them to be grouped. Most messaging systems use folders to store and categorize emails. During the migration from Google to another mail system, labels are converted to folders. Emails are stored in the folders corresponding to the labels. In Google, an email can have several labels and Cloudiway does not duplicate emails. If an email has several labels, the first one is kept. FastTrack has a different process and will keep all labels but will duplicate emails if multiple labels are applied to the same email.
