When I’m not nerding out on technology, you can find me running ultramarathons, brewing beer, or in my woodshop building something.
Lync On-Premises vs Lync Online
October 20, 2011
Cloud Services, Lync, Office 365
A common question about Lync Online (and the other Office 365 products too, but this post is Lync-centric) is “how is this different from the on-premises solution?” And there is a comprehensive feature comparison available at the Office 365 Community site, but usually the next question I get is “yeah yeah, but what does that really mean for me?”
So here’s a shortlist of the more pertinant features that you don’t get with Lync Online.
This usually leads to a question like, “ok, so what do they have in common then?”
So for completeness, here’s some of the more popular things you can do with both versions of the product.
Hope that’s helpful. Might add SharePoint Online and Exchange Online comparisons too.
