Email has become a vital business commodity. As many companies look for ways to streamline business operations, users can leverage email hosting to share documents, view calendars and significantly cut costs while saving time.
For small to medium-sized businesses, some email hosting options may seem unattainable due to cost or lack of IT resources. And with so many email-hosting providers on the market today, choosing the right relationship is all the more daunting. TMCnet has explored the benefits of three top email hosting exchange providers. Here is an overview of their offerings:
Email hosting provider SherWeb claims to have built a highly reliable infrastructure where all components are redundant to ensure maximum availability of service. Many small and medium businesses lack the IT resources or expertise to operate and manage a business-class messaging solution. However, SherWeb’s Hosted Exchange solution addresses this need by providing customers with security and reliability; guaranteed backup and recovery; 24/7/365 maintenance; and full administrative control.
SherWeb’s Hosted Exchange also provides support for mobile employees with wireless Blackberry, iPhone (News – Alert), and Windows Mobile synchronization and a full-featured Outlook Web App 2010.
Instead of investing a lot of money in servers, software, technical infrastructure, upgrades, maintenance, IT staff and more, SMBs can free up IT staff by implementing SherWeb’s software for a fixed cost per user, per month.
Another email hosted exchange option is the offering from Rackspace, the largest provider of Microsoft Hosted Exchange (News – Alert). All of the company’s email accounts have access to 250MB of SharePoint storage for free. Rackspace’s Hosted Exchange service is supported by over 100 Microsoft Certified Professionals and has earned Microsoft Gold Partner status.
Rackspace (News – Alert) also promises enhanced security: the company says its data centers are protected by strict physical and systems security measures, plus fire suppression and redundant power systems. With Rackspace, companies can start setting up mailboxes immediately after signup. If concerns about fraud or spamming exist, activation may take up to 24 hours.
Businesses can also go direct to the source by utilizing Microsoft’s Exchange Server. The tech giant has delivered new, integrated e-mail archiving, retention and discovery capabilities with the release of Exchange Server 2010. Microsoft Exchange can be deployed as Exchange Server 2010 on-premises, Exchange Online with Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud, or using both in a temporary or permanent hybrid scenario.
This email hosting solution provides hosted email, calendar and contacts on your PC, phone and a Web browser. Microsoft Exchange offers built-in anti-virus and antispam filters protect your information; mobile sync to hundreds of devices means businesses can access and update information while on the go; and promises a 99.9 percent uptime commitment with financially backed SLA.
Microsoft’s hosted Exchange environment offers 25 GB mailboxes for every user without having to manage a server. In addition, data is hosted in geographically distributed data centers with continuous data backup and premiere disaster recovery capabilities.
More and more organizations are choosing to move email infrastructure to the cloud by consuming email as a hosted service over the Internet rather than deploying, managing, securing, and updating email servers in-house. Hosted Exchange can reduce IT costs; increase agility, availability and reliability; and provide the latest technology without having to migrate or upgrade.
