Microsoft Exchange 2010

For most businesses today, e-mail has become a mission-critical communications tool. Greater reliance on e-mail has increased the number of messages sent and received; the varieties of work performed, and even the speed of business itself. Today, employees expect rich, efficient access to e-mail, calendars, attachments, contacts, and more - no matter where they are or what type of device they are using. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 has been designed specifically to meet these challenges and address the needs of your business.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is a dedicated messaging and calendaring system. This core functionality has grown over the last ten years and Exchange now provides some of the world’s most reliable email systems. Instead of developing Exchange into a complete collaboration platform, Microsoft has invested heavily in designing dedicated, complimentary collaborative products such as SharePoint that interoperate with Exchange to provide you with a choice of ‘best of breed’ applications.

Exchange Server 2010 is available in Standard Edition and Enterprise Editions. The Standard Edition is designed to meet the messaging and collaboration needs of small to medium businesses, but may also be suitable for specific server roles or branch offices. The Enterprise Edition is for enterprise Customers and it enables advanced features such as the creation of multiple storage groups and databases. One of the most noticeable changes from previous versions of Exchange is the requirement for 64 bit hardware and operating system for any server holding an Exchange 2010 role. This provides a scalable and high performance platform for the requirements of both today and tomorrow.
