At the Tech•Ed Europe 2009 conference in Berlin, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the release of Exchange 2010. Built with a new design that improves uptime, strengthens protection, reduces costs, and streamlines management, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 teams with Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as part of a new wave of IT solutions created to increase business efficiency and bottom-line profit.
Microsoft Exchange 2010’s improvements in the field of system uptime include the use of database availability groups that continuously copy mailboxes and offer rapid, automatic recovery from disk or server failures without complex hardware clustering configurations. Innovations such as retention control policies, role-based access management, and allow/block or quarantine control for wireless devices bolster security and compliance. To improve return on investment, Microsoft Exchange 2010 can save as much as 20% on support expenses, 50% on server redundancy, 40% on voice mail costs, and 70% on disk systems.
