While Microsoft has made connecting SharePoint to Office 365 relatively easy, there are several considerations and steps you need to complete for Hybrid SharePoint. US Cloud engineers can help you every step of the way in configuring your Hybrid SharePoint environment, from purchasing Office 365 licenses, to syncing your Active Directory and ensuring that everything continues to work after the initial configuration.
Users can see SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online sites consolidated in a single list and also have a single profile in Office 365, where all of their profile information is stored.
Users can sync files with Office 365 and access them from their various devices, as well as share them with others.
Content can be indexed and searched across on-premises SharePoint Server and Office 365.
Smaller storage requirements
With the your site documents being stored in an Office 365 tenant, less storage is needed for your on-premises SharePoint farm. Also with the customer’s search index being stored in Office 365 tenant less storage is needed on the search servers.
Use of advanced Office 365 features
With a hybrid configuration, you can take advantage of Office 365 features (determined by their Office 365 subscription level) such as Yammer, Video, Delve, and Groups that aren’t available for on-premises versions of SharePoint, while still having access to on-premises content when using these services.
Fully integrated search
With the Cloud Search Service Application, you can perform one search query and get fully integrated results from your on-premises SharePoint farm, as well as your SharePoint Online tenant.
With a hybrid configuration, users can access their SharePoint on-premises content and their SharePoint Online content with the same user account and password.
