Exchange OnPremises Requirements for Office 365 Hybrid Deployments

    The Exchange Online service included as part of an Office 365 tenant is based on Exchange Server. When the Office 365 tenant is upgraded and the tenant version changes, the version of Exchange Online also changes. Following is specific information about tenant versions currently available:

    • Office 365 tenant version v14   Office 365 tenant version 14 includes the Exchange Online service that is based on Exchange 2010. This tenant version is identified by version number 14.0.000.0 and higher.
    • Office 365 tenant version v15   Office 365 tenant version 15 includes the Exchange Online service that is based on Exchange 2013. This tenant version is identified by version number 15.0.000.0 and higher.

    Note:

    If you’re unsure what version of the Office 365 tenant is configured as part of your hybrid deployment, see the Verify Office 365 tenant version and status section later in this topic.
