A light switch migration focuses on achieving a speedy migration of mailboxes to the new system, in effect flipping a switch whereby one day users are utilizing the legacy email system and the next they are utilizing the new email system.
The dual migration strategy’s purpose is to shrink the amount of time it takes to perform mailbox migrations during the critical deployment time period by reducing the amount of data that must be migrated during that time.
Using this strategy, the Standard migration process is changed considerably such that each mailbox is actually touched twice, once to migrate a limited amount of mailbox data and again to migrate the balance of mailbox data.

The Migration Period, also called Barbarian Invasions or Völkerwanderung, is a name given by historians to a human migration which occurred within the period of roughly AD 300–700 in Europe[1], marking the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages.The migration included the Goths, Vandals, and Franks, among other Germanic, Bulgar and Slavic tribes.
The migration may have been triggered by the incursions of the Huns, in turn connected to the Turkic migration in Central Asia, population pressures, or climate changes.Migrations would continue well beyond 1000 AD, successive waves of Slavs, Alans, Avars, Bulgars, Hungarians, Pechenegs, Cumans, and Tatars radically changing the ethnic makeup of Eastern Europe.
migration movement may be divided into two phases; the first phase, between AD 300 and 500, largely seen from the Mediterranean perspective, put Germanic peoples in control of most areas of the former Western Roman Empire.

The second interpretation was that the Kosovo Serbs were being driven out by Albanian separatists and by the policies of the Albanian authorities who ruled Kosovo when it achieved de facto republic status.
