Overview of Sharepoint migration tools which support O365

Recently we evaluated tools suitable for migrating the content from old Sharepoint 2007 to Sharepoint Online (O365). In this post I will share summary table which may help you to orient in some migration tools available on market. Note that on the moment when you will read this article prices may be outdated. Here is the table:

Tool Price SP2007 to O365 supported Requires server installation Comments

Quest (Dell) Content Migrator for SharePoint

Quest (Dell) Migration Suite for SharePoint

Example: minimum 250 Gb, and price per gigabyte is 50 €

Metalogix Content-Matrix

25 Gb - free
50 Gb - 1995$
100 Gb - 3995$
>100 Gb – quote should be requested

Yes No Formelly Axceller

These are not all tools available, because we needed migration specifically from SP2007 to O365, but not all tools support these platforms. However anyway it may be helpful for initial overview.

Update 2014-12-19: got new insider information that Dell migration suite is now licensed per content database (400€ per database if I remember correctly), not per Gb, so information about that tool in table above is outdated.
