We want to create a hybrid environment for our Exchange 2010 environment that is currently in production. It is running on top of 2008R2. I am trying to keep it as simple as possible. Can anyone point me in the right direction as for step by step?

When configuring a hybrid deployment in an Exchange 2010 organization, you aren’t required to install additional Exchange servers in your existing Exchange organization. As long as your Client Access and Hub Transport servers are updated to Exchange 2010 Service Pack 3 (SP3) with the latest update roll up, these servers can coordinate communications between your existing Exchange 2010 organization and the Exchange Online organization. This communication includes message transport and messaging features between the on-premises and Exchange Online organizations. We highly recommend installing more than one Exchange server in your on-premises organization to help increase reliability and availability of hybrid deployment features.
