At the Microsoft Tech•Ed Europe 2009 show in Berlin, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop announced the worldwide availability of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Built with an innovative design that improves uptime, bolsters protection, reduces deployment costs, and streamlines administration, Exchange Server 2010 joins Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as a member of a new wave of IT solutions created to enhance business productivity and profitability.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010’s enhancements in the field of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that automatically replicate mailboxes and provide rapid, unassisted recovery from hard disk or processor breakdowns without complex clustering configurations. Features like retention control policies, role-based connection control, and allow/block or quarantine lists for wireless handsets strengthen security and compliance. To improve ROI, Exchange Server 2010 can conserve as much as 20% on operational expenses, 50% on server redundancy, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk systems.
