I have in my office one exchange server 2010 on windows server 2008 standard(physical box) which is also running Active Directory and 2 file servers running windows server 2003 in a domain environment.

I have around 100 users on exchange 2010 with total capacity of around 180 GB mailbox database size.
they are all in house. I have ISP router in my office and switch panel for Ethernet connectivity.

I have been told to migrate exchange users to o365 and also migrate separately file servers on to cloud platform.

also sunset then physical servers at office

I don't know where to start with.

1) can you provide some blueprint plan or summary plan with some steps as to how should I go ahead.
2) how much time in months it may take place
3) what about the workstations who are hooked in domain environment in my office How they will access the portal
after migration.

Start by selecting the appropriate migration method for Exchange: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj863291(v=exchg.150).aspx

Cutover migration is very easy to set up, and its the recommended method for migrating small shops. Make sure you review the information above however in order not to miss any important detail that might affect your specific situation.

Timewise, you should be able to do it in less than a month, planning included. Until you switch the MX records, there will be practically no impact on the service, so you can take as much time as you need to make sure everything is in order after the migration.

The last question is not really clear. If you are referring to firewall requirements, take a look at this article (and the other articles in the same section): http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh373144.aspx
