At the Microsoft Tech•Ed Europe 2009 conference in Berlin, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop announced the worldwide availability of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. With a new architecture that improves uptime, strengthens security and compliance, lowers deployment costs, and streamlines management, Exchange Server 2010 joins Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as part of a new generation of information technology designed to enhance business productivity and profitability.
Exchange 2010's improvements in the area of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that continuously replicate mailboxes and provide fast, automatic recovery from disk or server failures without complex clustering schemes. Features such as retention management policies, role-based access control, and block or quarantine lists for mobile devices improve security and compliance. To accelerate return on investment, Exchange Server 2010 can save as much as 20% on operational costs, 50% on full server redundancy, 40% on voice mail costs, and 70% on disk storage.
