At the Microsoft Tech•Ed Europe 2009 conference in Germany, Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the production release of Microsoft Exchange 2010. Built with a new structure that improves uptime, bolsters protection, reduces deployment costs, and simplifies management, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 joins Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 as a member of a new generation of IT solutions designed to enhance business efficiency and bottom-line profit.
Exchange Server 2010’s improvements in the area of system uptime include the use of database availability groups that continuously replicate mailboxes and offer fast, automatic restoration from hard disk or processor breakdowns without complex clustering configurations. Features such as retention control policies, role-based connection control, and allow/block or quarantine lists for wireless devices strengthen protection. To accelerate ROI, Exchange Server 2010 can save as much as 20% on operational costs, 50% on server fault tolerance, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk systems.
