Upgrading a hosted Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013

We have a hosted Exchange 2007 environment that is hosting Exchange for several clients.  We used this guide to setup the environment so that each client is isolated with their own mailbox database, GAL, OAB, etc.:  http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2007/migration-deployment/shared-hosting-exchange-2007-part1.html

We are looking to upgrade from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013.  Is there anything that we need to do differently from a standard upgrade seeing as our environment is setup this way?  I just want to make sure that when we upgrade it isn't going to revert any of the permissions we have set on the GALs, OABs, etc.


Thanks!

Right, this will be performed in a test environment beforehand.  I just wanted to make sure before I started messing around with it that there wasn't anything I should know before starting and wasting time.  Thanks for the input.
There are two things you needed:

1) Product Expertise
2) Environment Expertise.

If you know both above, then you won't face much issues. Environment knowledge is key, as you know better than anyone else. what will best works for your users. Exchange can be deployed in several ways, however end of the day, cost/user experience is key.
