Each licenses allows you to migrate a respective mailbox as many times as necessary. Powerful deduplication features allow for delta migrations to support both big bang and phased migrations.

Transend Migration Console should only be installed on a single machine. However, depending on the Edition you purchased, you may scale your project by installing Transend Remote Agent(s) on as many machines as your licensed Edition will allow.

View details on the different Editions and their scalability benefits.

Absolutely not! You only need to purchase licenses for the number of mailboxes you need to migrate.

For Education customers, Transend provides significant discounts to student accounts. When requesting pricing, it’s important to differentiate staff/faculty from students, as Transend provides much more aggressive discounts to students than all other users.
