Can we create the same instance of office 365 tenant?, What I mean is one tenant I use for Test and other tenant I use for stage.

I don't want to recreate everything as fresh for another new tenant, is it possible to achieve this requirement creating another instance of tenant?

If it is yes, suppose we already have existing tenant called X, and If I am able to create instance of X which is called Y, then whatever changes done in Y tenant it should not reflect in the X.

Is it possible to achieve this requirement?

    Hi @sns
    There is no direct effective way to meet your requirement. As a workaround, you could create a tenant and migrate the content to the new tenant.

    However, in the manual method, users need to run PowerShell cmdlets scripts, which require great technical expertise. A minor mistake or mis-stype in these scripts can result in multiple errors and failures in this migration process. Moreover, PowerShell has its own limitations as it does not maintain the data integrity and folder structure or hierarchy. Moreover, it can hamper the running business by creating a temporary communication halt. Hence, organizations must understand the downtime and shortcomings involved in this manual approach. In this way, this becomes a tedious and time-consuming approach to follow for this data transfer operation.

    Most customers work with Microsoft Consulting Services or a Microsoft partner to migrate tenants, including using third-party tools to migrate content.
