Wright-Patterson AFB Conducts Email Cloud Migration

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has migrated more than 30,000 email accounts to the cloud as part of a Defense Department effort to provide greater email storage.

Under the Cloud Hosted Enterprise Service initiative, the 88th Communications Group Communications/Cyber Planner and 88th Communications Squadron worked to migrate email accounts of the base’s users, Wright-Patterson AFB said Wednesday.

Post-migration, the team performed cleanups to correct errors and update accounts that did not successfully migrate to the cloud.

The 88th Cyber Operations Center helped the team resolve issues after the two-day migration that did not cover accounts from the 88th Medical Group.

Vanessa Johnson, who leads the 88th Communications Group Communications/Cyber Planner, said the migration arrived at a 99.4 percent success rate with approximately 50,000 items updated.

Email migration activities have since moved to other U.S. Air Force bases.
