Exchange hosting may have been your cash cow during the last few years, but it’s not going to hold water in the future. Microsoft’s CSP program now gives MSPs the opportunity to offer high-end services to their customers without having to invest in costly infrastructure, updates and security.
Choosing the right cloud solution for your business email can be hard, considering the different offers you have to look at. Which option is the best for you? You can only answer that question if you have a clear list of your needs. If you’ve been hosting your own email servers on-premises for some time and plan to migrate to the cloud, your needs will be different compared to a company that is building its IT services from scratch. Depending on the industry regulations you have to follow, you might be faced with more constraints (e.g., email retention policies, encryption policies). And, depending on your business organization, you’ll have other issues to deal with (office branches, complex communication processes, etc.). To help you decide, we compare Office 365 vs. Hosted Exchange. Two great options for your business email hosting. Which one should you choose?
From Hosted Exchange to Cloud servers, it seems that everyone is talking cloud computing these days. Gartner’s forecast for 2011-2017 expects adoption to hit $250 billion by 2017, with the global software as a service (SaaS) market growing from $18.2 billion in 2012 to $45.6 billion in 2017.
When it comes to finding a communication and collaboration platform for your organization or customers, the right fit doesn’t always mean going with the industry giant. Office 365 certainly has a lot to offer, but not when it comes to customization and personalized support.
