Office 365 and Outlook, and Migration Transfer Speed
Posted on 2014-03-28
I have many PST message files that I am transferring to Office 365 and into Outlook 365. I have my own preferred utility to do that. What I am finding is that the transfer speed is not as fast as I would like for it to be. I would like to speed up the process of transferring the PST messages into Office 365.
In order to increase performance, I placed the PST files onto a local high speed drive, turned off antivirus, use a powerful computer with Windows 64bit, isolated my network segment so that I do not have to share network traffic, and stuff like that. I am getting adequate performance but I think I can get better. I just need to figure out what else I can do in order to increase the transfer rate.
Is there anything I can do on Office 365 to improve my transfer rate through the Office 365 interface or through PowerShell? I believe Office 365 uses throttling so I will probably run into that, but hopefully, the throttling is only per user.
I would appreciate suggestions on how to improve my transfer rate from a workstation into Office 365, and would like to focus on improved performance with the Office 365 connection.
Thanks in advance.
