Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange provides businesses with email, calendar, and contacts on the PC, mobile device and web in order to keep employees connected and in sync from virtually anywhere; and with remote device management capabilities you can ensure the data is secure once it has left the office.

Built to deliver the enterprise-grade security that businesses require it has multi-layered, anti-spam filtering with continuous updates that helps guard against spam and phishing threats. Additionally, an inbuilt high availability and disaster recovery solution reduces the cost and complexity of delivering business continuity even across geographically separate datacentres.

A variety of storage options, greatly improved disk efficiency and client caching allows for significant hardware reduction and cost savings and gives users larger and more reliable mailboxes. A new Exchange Role-based access control model can empower specialist users to perform specific tasks without requiring administrative control, such as giving compliance officers the ability to conduct mailbox searches. This reduces the burden on IT staff and lowers operational costs.

SaintGroup has worked with Exchange since its conception and has migrated hundreds of thousands of mailboxes. Our experience allows us to understand and advise on the associated Licensing, Active Directory, Email Archiving, Networking, Load-Balancing, Storage, client management, Virtualization and Backup considerations that cover any Exchange migration project, whether an on-premises deployment, a SaintGroup hosted Exchange service or a seamless mix of both.
