Microsoft has released the latest version of its mail server software, touting a new email archiving feature, improved support for unified communications systems that merge phone and computer systems, and an expanded search capability.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is now available worldwide to help businesses reduce costs and protect communication platforms, it was announced at the TechEd conference in Germany today.
Along with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, Exchange Server 2010 is part of a generation of solutions designed for increased business productivity and cost savings.
Microsoft business division president Stephen Elop also announced the release of Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server, which helps Exchange Server customers further safeguard business information.
“Windows Server 2008 R2 brings many efficiencies to our customers, including enabling new virtualisation scenarios,
“We’ve added the next generation of Hypervisor and the new ability to Live Migrate virtual machines, and we are seeing tangible evidence such as Hyper-V live migration for companies where service has remained continuous during deployment of Windows Server 2008 R2,” Mr Elop said.
Microsoft Product Manager Exchange New Zealand Darryl Burling said customers using Exchange 2010 were reporting cost savings of 40 to 70%. “Customers are also seeing productivity gains of more than 20 percent with a universal inbox that delivers email, voice mail, instant messaging and text messaging consistently across any device,” Mr Burling said.
“Together with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, the combined cost savings and improved productivity will help New Zealand businesses generate long-term business success.”
More than 270,000 partners globally are certified on these products. Exchange Server 2010 and Forefront Protection 2010 are available now for trial here.
