Choosing the right solution for your work email can be hard, given the wide range of offers that you might come across.
Microsoft Hosted Exchange is a cloud email solution. It offers ultra-secure, always on, reliable access to your corporate email, calendar, and contacts no matter where you are.

Which option is the best for you?

If you have been running your own email servers on-premises and looking to migrate to the cloud, your requirements will be very different from those of a new business setting up its IT services.

If you are looking to operate your business email with fewer resources and costs, and more mobility, then Microsoft Hosted Exchange has got you covered.

What is Microsoft Hosted Exchange?

Microsoft Hosted Exchange or Microsoft Hosted Exchange, is a version of Microsoft exchange server. It is a Microsoft Corporation proprietary product designed to centralize your emails into a single database in the cloud – Microsoft cloud. It can be accessed or delivered either from a cloud service provider or a remote server.

This is to say, it has the same level of enhanced functionality as a standard exchange server, however, the delivery model is different.

Let’s explain more…

Microsoft Hosted Exchange is typically installed and hosted on the provider’s platform in which the provider manages the hosted data of its clients on the server. 

Microsoft Hosted Exchange services include business emails, calendars, contacts, and address lists delivered as a cloud service. And so, if you integrate Microsoft Hosted Exchange into your business processes, you will be able to access all these services anywhere and almost from any device.

How Microsoft Hosted Exchange can help your organization?

Here are few main benefits of Microsoft Hosted Exchange:

1. Cost-effective 

Microsoft Hosted Exchange allows businesses to rent space in an email service provider’s data center, reducing IT overhead. For small businesses, this is a better and more cost-effective solution than having on-premise email servers.

2. Easy implementation

Implementing Microsoft Exchange in-house would require physical space allocation for the server, server, and Microsoft Exchange installation. Not only that, but you will also manage Exchange, new accounts, and users. 

Also, if your Exchange server crashes, you’ll have to manage any troubleshooting yourself. 

However, by integrating Microsoft Hosted Exchange solution, your IT partner takes charge of business email hosting, installation, and management.

3. Flexibility

Growing businesses may find it difficult to scale an in-house Exchange solution as it is limited by the capacity of the server. On the other hand, Microsoft Hosted Exchange allows you to adjust your hosting requirements whenever you need by simply contacting your service provider.
