Here are some of the major projects that Marathon has recently conducted.


Reseller - Project: OFFICE 365 HYBRID MIGRATION

The customer owned 2 companies but required them both to be hosted in separate Office 365 tenancies. The purpose of the project was to create an Office 365 hybrid solution using Exchange 2016 within both companies and provide a successful proof of concept for the internal IT team to continue the user mailbox migrations.

Between the 2 companies, there were around 4000+ users to be migrated to Office 365 Exchange Online. This required a reliable solution to migrate a vast amount of data to Office 365 EOL. 2 Exchange 2016 servers were built within each company so that the migration endpoints within Office 365 could be load balanced using a 3rd party software and provide the customer with a steady connection to the on-premise exchange servers whilst migrating mailbox data.

Technologies used: Microsoft Exchange 2016, Office 365 Exchange Online

Roles: Architecture/Design, Implementation Planning, Technical Project Management, Implementation, Support

Construction Company - Project: Cross Forest AD Migration and Office 365 Tenant Migration

The customer had formed a UK-based organisation following a de-merger from a global company with large presence in Europe and the US. The purpose of the project was therefore to create a new Active Directory environment for sole use by the newly formed UK organisation, and to migrate all users, computers, applications and servers into this newly created environment.

A three phase approach was adopted, with initial planning and creation of the new environment being carried out in phase 1, the organisation’s 1000 users and workstations being migrated over to this environment in phase 2, and all servers, applications and infrastructure servers being migration in phase 3.

Running in parallel to this was the requirement to migrate the organisation’s Office 365 tenancy, and all associate mailboxes, contacts, distribution groups etc., as well as the Sharepoint Online implementation, as the existing tenancy was held in the US.

Technologies used: Microsoft Windows Server, Active Directory, Active Directory Migration Tool, Office 365, CloudMigrator365
