Office 365 Exchange Online - Auto Failover

Is it possible to use Microsoft Office 365 in a hybrid configuration as well as automatic failover? For example, if O365 goes down, we can still send and receive and access all our mailboxes from the on-premise Exchange server 2010.

This would mean having a mailbox on both O365 and on-premise using active-active failover.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No not possible. Office 365 is SAAS service. Customer are not allowed to manage servers in office 365. You can only use their services, like you use Gmail.

You better need to look for complete on-premises solution with DR site. It is rare that Office 365 goes completely down.

I know Office 365 gone down several times. There is no backup solution for O365. It is Microsoft responsibility to meet SLA with clients. As, I said you have to go completely back to on-premises. Or if you have hybrid. Keep your key VIP users and mailbox on premises.
