Office 365 to G Suite migration System Requirements
So you have decided to migrate from Office 365 to G Suite with us. Congratulations, In this post we will tell you what information we need to migrate you from Office 365 to G Suite this weekend.
1. G Suite Super Admin Credentials (Required)
We would need your G Suite Super Administrator email id and password to login and make required changes so Google can ingest the emails from Office 365 to your G Suite users mailboxes.
You can either provide your existing G Suite Super Administrator credentials, or create a new mailbox and assign it super administrator rights.
If you have not created G Suite yet, don’t worry about it. We will create it for your and use the admin account for migration.
2. Office 365 Details (Required)
We will need Office 365 Super Administrator email id and password. This will be used to migrate your users emails, calendar and contacts from Office 365 to G Suite.
You can either provide us your administrator credentials, or create a new account for us and provide it super administrator permissions. You can then delete this account once we complete your move from Office 365 to G Suite.
3. Your DNS Credentials (Optional)
You should also provide us access to your DNS, its the place where your domain name servers are hosted (e.g Godaddy), we will need to make certain changes in your DNS.
We follow a proven Rackspace to G Suite Migration process but please let us know If you are not comfortable sharing your DNS credentials.
We can also send the required DNS changes for you to make. You should be available on weekend for couple of hours if you prefer to do this yourself.
4. Your Company Logo (Optional)
We can personalize your users G Suite mailboxes with your logo instead of Google’s default one.
This logo appears at the top of your users’ services window, after they sign in to their account. Please provide us the logo with following size and dimensions.
G Suite Logo – File Size and Format
- PNG or GIF format
- Maximum file size: 30KB
- Maximum dimensions: 320 x 132 pixels
- Important: Images with smaller dimensions will scale. But for the logo to upload, you must use the same aspect ratio.

We charge 50% of the total pricing after the project as a token of assurance of quality. Our digital invoicing system provides convenience to use any credit card.
Most frequent questions and answers about Office 365 to Gmail migration.
That’s a great question.
We don’t want you to juggle around systems, or answer 100 odd questions to migrate from Office 365 to Google.
All we ask for is to provide some information (mentioned here) and that is it.
Seriously, that is it.
We do every damn required thing to migrate you to G Suite without a glitch.
Though we can’t pay for your trip, but feel free to visit Hawaii after providing us required information. You don’t need to worry about whats happening with your migration, its all taken care by G Suite experts.
We use premium migration utilities to migrate your data which means migrating at blazing fast speed.
For users with mailbox size of less than 5 GB, we usually migrate them fully within a weekend, so they see all data in their G Suite mailbox when they login on Monday morning.
For your email super users with mailbox size of more than 5 GB, our smart migration utility migrates data from latest to oldest.
So when they login to their G Suite mailbox on Monday morning, they will have at least last couple of years of email.
Rest of their emails will keep on migrating behind the scenes, so you are kinda all set (unless you are really lagging behind and want to reply to that 6 year old email:).
Thats not why you hired us, right?
Well, obviously there are some limitations where Gmail will reject to accept emails from Office 365, think of cases like email with virus, or an email with an attachment larger than 50 MB (Gmail’s limit is 50 MB).
But other than these fair reasons, all your Office 365 emails would go right into your Gmail just like cream cheese in a plain bagel.
Nothing is impossible.
If you are determined you can even go to the moon, so instead of asking “Can’t we do it by ourselves?” you should rather be asking “Should we do it ourselves”?.
If you want to do it yourself, you can but you will need to put in a few hours (or may be days or weeks) to learn the in and outs of G Suite migration, and have some patience to hit and try things.
So unless you are a student and want to learn things by investing a few days or weeks, it will make better business sense to hire us.
We do G Suite migrations every day and we make our living with it. Our years of learning and experience can help you migrate smoothly to G Suite within a weekend. This will definitely save you substantial time, energy and money.
Thats a great question.
We are different than other Google Cloud partners in two things.
Pricing and Process
Pricing – Most of our customers who come to us after getting G Suite migration quotes from our competitors say that our pricing is ridiculous.
You will find our pricing almost 3 times cheaper than of our competitors in most of the cases, sometimes even 4 times cheaper.
One of our customers was transparent enough to share the $1100 quote he got from another Google Cloud partner. We migrated them smoothly to G Suite in $260. Did you notice the price difference? :).
Process – Now you might be asking how is their our pricing that low, how can they do it in almost 1/3 of their competitors pricing.
The answer is “Our Proven and Automated” migration process which makes it a win win.
