Microsoft’s latest email server, Microsoft Exchange 2013 has been released and we are now making it available to you though our cloud services. Depending on your business needs, Lync and SharePoint 2013 are also available. What is new in Exchange 2013 and is it right for your business? We can go over this in more detail with you and decide based on your specific business needs, but from our experience, companies with 1-80 or more users can have a nice amount of savings by switching their email service to the cloud. Compared to an on-premise email server there are many advantages to having your email in the cloud. To begin with, your emails are not lost if your internet goes down, there is no software or hardware to buy, install, and troubleshoot. The other advantage of utilizing the cloud is you only pay for what you use. One month you pay for 12 mailboxes and the next you only need 10 so you pay less. With an on-premise solution you pay the same amount you would if you have 1 user or 100. What many people don't realize is the initial charge for the on-premise software, extra powerful server and setup of everything is not the end. You have to hire a technician when something doesn't work right and to maintain the server when it does work right. When you need to upgrade to a new server or software you have to pay a technician to migrate everything. All these changes can dramatically add up over several years. In the cloud, the provider maintains the servers, fixes the problems, performs the migrations and has multiple redundant systems in case of an outage.... all you pay is the monthly fee for what you use.
