Exchange 2010 ConsultingAt the Tech•Ed 2009 conference in Germany, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the production release of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Equipped with an innovative architecture that improves uptime, strengthens security, reduces deployment costs, and simplifies administration, Exchange 2010 joins Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 as part of a new generation of IT platforms designed to increase business productivity and profits.

Exchange Server 2010’s improvements in the field of fault tolerance include the use of database availability groups that automatically replicate mailboxes and provide fast, automatic restoration from hard disk or processor breakdowns without complicated clustering configurations. Innovations such as retention control policies, role-based connection control, and allow/block or quarantine control for wireless devices bolster protection. To improve ROI, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 can conserve up to 20% on operational expenses, 50% on server fault tolerance, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk systems.
