Exchange Server 2010 ExpertiseAt the Microsoft Tech•Ed 2009 show in Berlin, Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the production release of Microsoft Exchange 2010. Built with an innovative structure that improves uptime, bolsters security, lowers costs, and streamlines management, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 teams with Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 as a member of the next wave of information technology platforms created to increase business efficiency and profits.

Exchange 2010’s enhancements in the field of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that continuously copy mailboxes and provide fast, automatic restoration from hard disk or processor failures without complex clustering schemes. Features like retention management policies, role-based access control, and allow/block or quarantine lists for wireless handsets strengthen security and compliance. To accelerate return on investment, Exchange Server 2010 can save up to 20% on support expenses, 50% on server fault tolerance, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk storage.
