Future-proof your growth
Between rapid adoption of footprint-heavy collaboration tools like Teams and SharePoint, migrations bringing more content into Microsoft, and limited retention strategies or lifecycle management in place, Microsoft’s baseline storage quotas are probably looking less sustainable every day.
More storage isn’t your only concern, however. You’re also juggling the higher costs, greater compliance risks and lower productivity of content chaos. You need a way to achieve storage optimisation.
You’re looking for a way to clear the clutter, organise the essentials and take control of your content trajectory to create a futureproof environment where expansion is no longer a barrier to progress.
With decades of Microsoft migration, deployment, and information management experience behind us, we know exactly where to find the quick storage optimisation wins. We also know where investing a little more effort yields the greatest dividends.
Our multi-level strategy will optimise your archiving; ready your environment for effective retention, classification and records management; eliminate current and future ROT; and help you implement effective content lifecycle and location controls at point of creation.
The result is a lean, mean, controlled content machine with an optimised storage footprint, futureproofed for a smooth, secure and cost-effective growth trajectory.

The Cloud Essentials’ team have shown they are a partner, not just a supplier. The company we acquired advised that the IT integration project was the most successful part of their conversion to join us, which is a reflection on everyone involved. Thank you!
Job well done! I appreciate your knowledge, expertise, and teamwork/engagement which contributed to a successful migration/cutover.
"Cloud Essentials performed a mail migration for our Institute of Astronomy, from a legacy Microsoft Exchange server to the University Microsoft 365 Tenancy. Cloud Essentials were extremely professional from start to finish. They understood our Higher Education context. They were very flexible when setting the timeline when we had some challenges in our availability to support the work. Their staff were helpful and friendly. They demonstrated great expertise and guided us throughout the process. The migration itself was smooth and fast. Great service by a great team! I would recommend and use their services again."
“This has been very refreshing. And Cloud Essentials have been not just an implementer, but a trusted partner. They’ve effectively become our ‘SharePoint arm’ within the company. They haven’t taken a cookie-cutter approach with something from another environment, but have genuinely wanted to find the best way to help us.”
"Cloud Essentials carried out a very professional service. They stayed cool, calm and collected. I’m sure it won’t be the last time we work with Cloud Essentials."
It is no small achievement to reduce a corporate enterprise data footprint this significantly in a responsible, well planned and executed manner.
“Cloud Essentials understand the importance of carrying out a project the right way, no matter the size of it. They don’t take any short cuts.”
“This was a smooth migration with very little impact on the business during the changeover, we would definitely use Cloud Essentials and the Binary Tree toolset again if we need to do another migration!”
