At the Microsoft Tech•Ed 2009 conference in Germany, Business Division President Stephen Elop introduced the worldwide availability of Exchange 2010. With a new architecture that improves availability, strengthens protection, reduces deployment costs, and streamlines management, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 joins Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 as part of the next generation of information technology platforms created to increase business efficiency and profitability.
Exchange Server 2010’s improvements in the field of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that continuously copy mailboxes and provide rapid, unassisted recovery from disk or server breakdowns without complex hardware clustering configurations. Innovations like retention management policies, role-based access control, and block or quarantine lists for mobile handsets strengthen security. To accelerate return on investment, Exchange 2010 can conserve as much as 20% on operational costs, 50% on full server redundancy, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk subsystems. To view Microsoft's press release, refer to Microsoft Announces Release of Exchange 2010.
