Brooklyn Law School Client

The Brooklyn Law School is a century old academic institution renowned for its innovative scholarship and training programs. Its faculty members have earned both national and international acclaim for expertise in diverse legal fields including, civil liberties, human rights, and health law. Metro CSG assisted in transferring the email accounts of faculty and students into Office 365.

I highly and enthusiastically recommend MetroCSG as a company you can feel confident to work with for your mail migration. They are professional, courteous, knowledgeable, responsive and are experts as far as Office 365, Azure, etc. is concerned.

Office 365 Hybrid Migration

The Challenge


400 Faculty / 1,300 Students

Due to a growing student body and faculty, Brooklyn Law School could not easily scale its IT infrastructure. Rather than investing in new on-premises infrastructure the school opted to migrate to the cloud. Transferring user accounts to the cloud, however, could not feasibly be accomplished in one shot because of its large size.

The Solution

Technologies Used:
Office 365, Exchange 2010, ADFS

Metro CSG proposed a hybrid Office 365 migration to spread the process out over one year. To accomplish this, a bridge was built between on-premises and the cloud to keep the two platforms in sync while email was transferred. This setup allowed ample time to pilot test the service before fully migrating. Following the completion of the migration, Metro CSG helped decommission the old servers.
