Although Office 365 can provide an excellent service for the majority of potential customers, there are some scalability limits and potential conflicts of which you need to be aware. Some of these limits may complicate the FastTrack migration process, and some of these limitations are currently not addressed in Office 365. However, there are plenty of mitigating approaches available to address these issues.
Note: I assume in this example(like wise you should consider doing research for other plans) customers will be migrating to the Enterprise E3 plan. Therefore, inherent scalability limits with the mid-sized and small business versions of Office 365 are not discussed.
Office 365 Scalability Limit
Exchange Online in a hybrid environment is only supported with single Exchange organizations.
You should contact Microsoft Support if you are migrating an organization with more than 500,000 users. SharePoint Online does not support full-trust code, but it can be configured in a hybrid arrangement with on-premises SharePoint implementations.
Windows Azure Active Directory
If your customer has more than 100,000 user accounts (previously 50,000) and you are planning to use directory synchronization, contact Microsoft support.
