ENTER HOSTED EXCHANGE
Hosted Exchange has been offered for several years by a large and growing number of providers around the world. There are a large number of hosted Exchange services worldwide, although these vendors vary widely in terms of their capabilities, the number of users they support, the ancillary services they provide, their pricing, etc. There are currently several million users of hosted Exchange and Office 365 worldwide.
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR HOSTED EXCHANGE?
There is a perception that hosted Exchange is intended only for small businesses, while on-premises Exchange is better suited to mid-sized and large organizations. While this has been the conventional wisdom for some time, and while smaller organizations can realize the most significant per-seat savings from the use of hosted Exchange, larger organizations are realizing the benefits of migrating to a hosted Exchange model.
