What are your long-term plans for Exchange? | Servers and Storage | TechRepublic.com

September 15, 2010

A hot technology topic is that some organizations are considering jettisoning their Exchange infrastructures in favor of either outsourcing the service or eliminating it altogether for another service (such as Gmail). In some industries, it has become commonplace to migrate from Exchange to an alternative solution. In higher education, for example, a lot of institutions have moved or are moving to Google’s free mail service or Microsoft’s Live@Edu service in order to get out from under the costs and complexity of maintaining an internal Exchange infrastructure.

However, for all the organizations that are considering a major move away from their legacy Exchange environments, there are as many that are standing firm and retaining Exchange infrastructures in-house and considering moves to virtualize Exchange. There are a plethora of options from which to choose when it comes to Exchange (or not to Exchange!).
