At the Microsoft Tech•Ed Europe 2009 show in Germany, Business Division President Stephen Elop announced the production release of Exchange Server 2010. With a new design that increases uptime, strengthens protection, reduces cost of ownership, and simplifies administration, Exchange 2010 teams with Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 as part of a new generation of IT platforms created to enhance business productivity and profitability.
Exchange Server 2010’s enhancements in the field of fault tolerance include the introduction of database availability groups that continuously copy mailboxes and offer fast, unassisted restoration from disk or processor breakdowns without complex hardware clustering schemes. Innovations such as retention control policies, role-based connection control, and allow/block or quarantine lists for wireless handsets bolster security. To improve return on investment, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 can conserve as much as 20% on operational expenses, 50% on full server redundancy, 40% on voice mail, and 70% on disk storage. To read Microsoft's news release, refer to Microsoft Releases Exchange 2010.
