What migration method are you going to use? Hybrid will offer you the best experience, both for the primary mailboxes and the archive ones. Other than that you can use the PST Import service: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms.o365.cc.ingestionhelp.aspx#BKMK_NetworkUpload

Or 3rd party tools.
