Features & Benefits

Microsoft Exchange is by far the best and most popular business email and collaboration product, but there’s a catch: running Exchange ‘in-house’ (that is, in your own offices, using your own hardware and software) is very expensive.

Upfront costs can exceed $5,000 – and this doesn’t include staff time to maintain it. This is why smaller businesses typically choose ‘hosted’ Exchange.

‘Hosted’ means that a specialist IT company runs the Exchange server and charges businesses a small monthly fee to use it. Compare what is involved:

Contract guaranteeing email 'uptime'

Having email and collaboration that always works is now essential to doing business - and downtime is unacceptable.

In-house Exchange servers - usually in a basement or closet not designed for sensitive IT equipment - can not match the reliability of hosted Outlook/Exchange.

Hosted Outlook/Exchange companies like Missouri Data Systems partner with companies that manage servers in large purpose-built datacenters with backup power, air conditioning and Internet connections. Below are the main threats to your email system:
