Hello,

I work for a school district and the idea of moving our email over to Google Apps for Education's Gmail has come up. We already use Apps for Education so we want to see if the process for migrating would be easy or not.

Has anyone on this forum ever migrated from Kerio to Google Apps for Education?

Thanks!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you enjoy Google's prying eyes peeking into everything you (and every one of your users) do?

People pay for email services for the same reason they pay for satellite radio. Eliminate/minimize commercials and get better quality programming.

We'd like to see you stay with Kerio. Smile

EDIT: What's the opportunity cost of moving to something else? If it takes 80 hours of time for planning & execution and time is worth $150/hour, you're looking at a $12,000 move.

Well, my official guess is that they're looking at getting Chromebooks on top of moving to Google Apps. It's hard to argue about $200 laptops when you're weighing budgets. It's also hard to argue about free Google Apps for Edu. Google's playing hardball.

We've done all of this, migrating email is one of the services we offer. We also do deployment and 1-to-1 maintenance.

Hit me up if you want more info. I can tell you what to avoid and what will work.

But yeah, Kerio's pretty awesome but Google's integrations are amazing.

I'm not sure I understand how this is a factor. Do ChromeBooks only attach to Google powered we sites? Does something prevent the Kerio Client (or any other web mail, for that matter) from working on a ChromeBook?

Google Chrome management is a whole different level. It's not just Google Apps, it's total management of the environment, what people can see, what they can have access to, etc.

Sounds like Chrome OS is being killed anyway (in standard google manner).

It's not being killed, but rather merged with Android.
