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.

NoteNote:
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.

NoteNote:
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.

Each Office 365 plan operated by 21Vianet includes a number of individual services, such as Exchange Online and SharePoint Online. The following table shows the services that are available in each Office 365 plan.

NoteNote:
1 Office 365 and Office 365 operated by 21Vianet do not provide support for any operating system that is not supported by its manufacturer.
2 In Office 365 Enterprise K1 operated by 21Vianet, Office 365 Video is limited to viewing only (no publishing or sharing).
3 If using directory synchronization with a local Active Directory, you must delete accounts or change passwords by using the local Active Directory, rather than the Office 365 portal or by using the Azure Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell.
4 Not yet available in Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, but coming soon.
5 You can have only one Public Website with Office 365 unless you’ve upgraded from an earlier version of Office 365. In that case, you have two Public Websites, but only one of them can be hosted with a custom domain name. For more information about working with the two websites for Business subscriptions, see Work with your two Office 365 Public Websites. If you have a different subscription, learn more about public websites at Public Website help for Office 365.
6 Reducing seats that were purchased with a term discount may be subject to an early termination fee. This is not applicable for subscriptions paid on a monthly basis.
7 Office 365 Education plans do not support license seat changes from the Office 365 Admin Center:

9 For Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, see the Service Level Agreement here.
10 For Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, see 21Vianet’s Online Services Standard Agreement for Office 365.
11 China Internet compliance policy requires that you get an Internet Content Provider (ICP) number for a public website. For more information, see the corresponding ICP topic.
12 Some TechNet content may not apply to Office 365 operated by 21Vianet.
13 Diminished experience. If your organization is dependent upon Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9 to access older web apps and services, you may want to consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 11 and evaluating Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11. This update helps provide better backward compatibility for legacy web apps.

The following table shows the Office 365 application features that are available in the Office 365 operated by 21Vianet plans.

1 Some third-party web parts and add-ins may not be available.
2 Windows Server AD RMS is an on-premises server that must be purchased and managed separately in order to enable the supported IRM features.
3 Transport rules are made up of flexible criteria, which allow you to define conditions and exceptions, and actions to take based on the criteria. The available criteria and actions differ between Exchange Online, and Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. For a list of available criteria and actions, see the corresponding criteria and actions topics for each product.
4 Only accessible via direct access to the Exchange admin center (EAC) management interface.

6 An EOA subscription can be purchased separately for each mailbox that requires the inactive mailbox feature.
7 For eDiscovery, you need a separate query for on-premise vs. cloud.
8 POP is supported, but IMAP is not.
9 Office 365 Business Essentials and Business Premium do not provide access rights for utilization with on-premises servers. To be compliant, customer must purchase or have previously purchased the appropriate CALs or upgrade to an Enterprise SKU, which provides these access rights.
10 The Hybrid Configuration wizard is available for Exchange 2013 CU5 and greater on-premises deployments. However, some hybrid features have limitations - see the help topic "Learn about Office 365 operated by 21Vianet" for more details.

13 Connected accounts are supported for POP & IMAP accounts, but disabled for Outlook.com (Hotmail).
14 Using a cmdlet to work with the Address List and Global Address List is not supported.

For information about Exchange Online limits, see the following:

ImportantImportant:
  • 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.

The following table lists Exchange Online Protection (EOP) features that are available in Office 365 operated by 21Vianet plans. For more detailed information about EOP features, click the links in the table.

PlanDescription

Exchange Online Archiving for Exchange Server for Office 365 operated by 21Vianet

Cloud-based archive for users with primary mailboxes in Exchange Server 2013 or Exchange 2010 (SP2 or later).

If you want to add a cloud-based archive to a primary mailbox that’s located on an on-premises Exchange server, you need to configure a hybrid deployment. For more information about hybrid deployments see Exchange Server Hybrid Deployments.

Exchange Online Archiving for Exchange Online for Office 365 operated by 21Vianet

The following plans already include archiving and do not require Exchange Online Archiving as an add-on:

  • Office 365 Education A1 operated by 21Vianet

  • Office 365 Enterprise E3 operated by 21Vianet

  • Exchange Online Plan 2 for Office 365 operated by 21Vianet

For details on the archiving capabilities of Exchange Online mailboxes, see Archive mailboxes in Exchange Online.

2 In-Place Archive can only be used to archive mail for a single user or entity for which a license has been applied. Using an In-Place Archive as a means to store mail from multiple users or entities is prohibited. For example, IT administrators can’t create shared mailboxes and have users copy (through the Cc or Bcc field, or through a transport rule) a shared mailbox for the explicit purpose of archiving.
3 For a list of supported Microsoft Outlook versions see Client Features in Exchange Online Archiving.
4 Windows Server AD RMS is an on-premises server that must be purchased and managed separately in order to enable the supported IRM features.
5 When you put a mailbox on In-Place Hold or Litigation Hold, the hold is placed on both the primary and the archive mailbox.

All Office 365 plans 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.

NoteNote:
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 is available in Preview for Office 365 operated by 21Vianet. For more information about Visio Online, see the Visio Online Service Description.
16 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.
17 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.

The following table lists Skype for Business Online features that are available across Office 365 operated by 21Vianet plans.

NoteNote:
This table indicates client and service availability across Office 365 options. If you want to compare individual features among the various Skype for Business desktop clients, web clients, and mobile clients, see Skype for Business Online client comparison tables and Mobile Client Comparison Tables.
NoteNote:

NoteNote:
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 include additional features including advanced telephony support, archiving & compliance features. A Skype for Business Online license must be assigned for each user. For more information on 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.

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.

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