We are downsizing our office to a new location. We already use MS Office 365 in the cloud, so I want to know if it's viable to move our files from a dedicated server onto a cloud service. Out uses are fairly simple, mostly Office documents, spreadsheets, Access db.

Hello FamiliesandSchools,It is possible to transfer your files from a dedicated server to your 365 tenancy. There's a couple of options:1. File Shares to OneDrive/SharePoint
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/fileshare-to-odsp-migration-guideYou will need to download the SharePoint migration tool
2. Azure (blob) StorageYou can use the link below to match your scenario to the appropriate solutionhttps://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-choose-data-transfer-solution
Based on the size of your infrastructure I would say a tool such as Azure (Az) Copy would sufficehttps://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-solution-small-dataset-low-moderate-network
Note, to perform either of these functions a user may be required to carry a particular core subscription license along with the appropriate administrative role within the tenant. To learn more about the capabilities of Azure you can refer to the link belowhttps://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/active-directory/
There is also a grant program available for eligible organizations to access up to $3500 year in Azure Credits
