Office 365 operated by 21Vianet

Office 365 operated by 21Vianet is designed to meet the needs for secure, reliable, and scalable cloud services in China. This service is powered by technology that Microsoft has licensed to 21Vianet.

Note

The Office 365 operated by 21Vianet version of Office 365 is specific to China.

Microsoft does not operate the service itself. 21Vianet operates, provides, and manages delivery of the service. 21Vianet is the largest carrier-neutral Internet data center services provider in China, providing hosting, managed network services, and cloud computing infrastructure services. By licensing Microsoft technologies, 21Vianet operates local Office 365 datacenters to provide the ability to use Office 365 services while keeping data within China. 21Vianet also provides subscription and billing services, as well as support.

Note

These services are subject to Chinese laws.

Due to the unique nature of the China services—operated by a partner from datacenters inside China—there are some features that have not yet been enabled. Customers will see the services come closer to full feature parity over time. See the service description footnotes for differences. For a higher-level overview of differences, see Learn about Office 365 operated by 21Vianet.

For more information about working with the two websites for Business subscriptions, see Work with your two Office 365 Public Websites.

Exchange Online limits

For information about Exchange Online limits, see the following:

Important

  • The limits applied to a Microsoft Office 365 organization may differ depending on how long the organization has been enrolled in the service. When a limit is changed in the Microsoft datacenters, it can take some time to apply the change to all existing customers.
  • You can't modify most of these limits, but you and your users should be aware of them.
  • These limits apply to both internal and external recipients.
  • By default, Exchange Online Protection (EOP) protects Exchange Online mailboxes. For limits that apply to EOP features in Exchange Online, see Exchange Online Protection Limits.

1 To use folder sync, you must have Office 2013 or later (Standard or Professional edition) or an Office 365 subscription that includes Office applications. Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Enterprise E1, and Office 365 Education plans do not include subscriptions to Office desktop applications. However, you can use folder sync if you have Office 2013 or later installed and subscribe to one of these plans.
2 Kiosk accounts have limited OneDrive for Business functionality. Kiosk customers can use the OneDrive for Business folder sync client application to sync team site document libraries with a shared computer and access documents offline. But kiosk accounts do not include a OneDrive for Business Personal Site, so they do not benefit from a OneDrive for Business personal library with 1 TB of online storage.
3 Access 2010 is not supported.
4 Because Kiosk users can't be administrators, tenants with Kiosk users need at least one Enterprise user to access the admin center.
5 SharePoint Online customers need to download and install the free Rank Model Tuning App in order to create and customize ranking models.
6 When you use eDiscovery features, the licensing requirement for a plan that permits that feature applies to all end users that are part of the eDiscovery action (Search, Hold, Export).
7 Authenticated SharePoint Online users can access private site collections with faceted navigation.
8 Kiosk users cannot create Office documents using live tiles. To create a document, kiosk users must do so from a SharePoint Online site by clicking New and then selecting a file type - Word document, Excel workbook, PowerPoint presentation, OneNote notebook, or Excel survey - from the Create a new file menu.
9 Some providers may be blocked in your country/region.
10 Sandboxed solutions cannot contain user code. Rather, they may only contain definition (.xml) files and resources that are processed by the server when they activate.
11 Sharing a document, library, or site by email with someone outside of your organization. Administrators do have the ability to turn it on, but will get a warning message indicating that it could make files shared accessible outside of your country. Users who attempt to share with someone outside of the organization will receive the same warning message.
12 Kiosk accounts have limited OneDrive for Business functionality. Kiosk customers can use the OneDrive for Business folder sync client application to sync team site document libraries with a shared computer and access documents offline. But kiosk accounts do not include a OneDrive for Business Personal Site, so they do not benefit from a OneDrive for Business personal library with 1 TB or 5 TB of online storage.
13 You can view documents in any Mobile browser. You need to install the Office Mobile app to edit documents. Office Mobile is currently available for Windows phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, iPhone, and iPad.
14 Help is available only in Simplified Chinese and English.
15 Visio Online consumption (view capability) is available for free. Visio Online create and edit capabilities require a license. For more information about Visio Online, see the Visio Online Service Description.
16 K1 users can access SharePoint Server in a hybrid setup, but Office 365 K1 does not include CAL rights to access the server; these rights must be purchased separately.

1 The Skype for Business (Lync) client is supported for use with these subscription options, but it is not included. Lync 2013 Basic is available for all customers. The Lync Basic desktop client is a locally installed application that provides presence, instant messaging, and conferencing features for Office 365 plans that include Skype for Business Online. Office 365 ProPlus, and Office 365 Enterprise E3 include the full Skype for Business (Lync) application, which includes additional features such as advanced telephony support, archiving, and compliance features. A Skype for Business Online license must be assigned for each user. For more information about Lync Basic features, see Skype for Business Online client comparison tables.
2 Archiving for Skype for Business Online depends upon the Exchange In-Place Hold feature, which is not included in this plan.
3 Only accessible through the Skype for Business admin center management interface.
4 In Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, the Skype for Business client is supported for use with these subscription options, but it is not included. To access multiparty video (gallery view), OneNote meeting notes, recording, and calendar delegation features, users must have rights to the full Skype for Business client. You can obtain the full Skype for Business client by purchasing Office 2013 Professional Plus.
5 In Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, tenants with a standalone Skype for Business plan can access reporting features if the tenant also has at least one active Exchange license, such as Exchange Online Plan 1 or Exchange Online Plan 2.

Skype for Business Online features across Office 365 standalone plans

The following table lists Office 365 plans that include the SharePoint Online service, but not all plans support all SharePoint features. The following table shows whether a feature is available in a plan.

Note

The Office 365 operated by 21Vianet version of Office 365 is specific to China.

Note

Skype for Business Online Standalone Plan 2 licensed users will get the Skype for Business Basic client, not the full Skype for Business client. If you want users to have the Skype for Business client, you will need to upgrade them to a license that includes it, such as an Enterprise-based license. To deploy the Skype for Business client to your users, see Deploy the Skype for Business client in Office 365.
