At the Microsoft Tech•Ed 2009 show in Germany, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the release of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. With a new design that improves uptime, bolsters security and compliance, lowers cost of ownership, and simplifies management, Exchange Server 2010 joins Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 as part of a new generation of information technology solutions designed to increase business productivity and profitability.
Exchange Server 2010’s improvements in the area of system uptime include the introduction of database availability groups that automatically copy mailboxes and offer rapid, automatic recovery from hard disk or server breakdowns without complex hardware clustering configurations. Innovations such as retention control policies, role-based connection control, and block or quarantine control for mobile handsets bolster protection. To improve return on investment, Exchange Server 2010 can save as much as 20% on support expenses, 50% on full server redundancy, 40% on voice mail costs, and 70% on disk subsystems.
