At the Microsoft Tech•Ed 2009 conference in Berlin, Microsoft's Stephen Elop introduced the release of Microsoft Exchange 2010. Built with a new structure that increases uptime, strengthens security, lowers cost of ownership, and simplifies administration, Exchange Server 2010 joins Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 as part of the next generation of IT solutions created to increase business efficiency and profitability.
Exchange Server 2010’s enhancements in the field of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that automatically replicate mailboxes and offer rapid, unassisted restoration from hard disk or server failures without complex hardware clustering configurations. Features like retention management policies, role-based connection control, and allow/block or quarantine lists for mobile devices strengthen security. To accelerate ROI, Exchange Server 2010 can conserve as much as 20% on operational expenses, 50% on server fault tolerance, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on hard disk subsystems. To read Microsoft's press release, refer to Microsoft Announces Release of Exchange 2010.
