Hosted Microsoft Exchange

Hosted Exchange gives organisations access to fully redundant email communications on a scalable, low cost per user basis, with appropriate certifications for both backup and compliance.

Email is the lifeblood of most companies’ communications today and they need a secure, stable and cost-effective email platform. Our Microsoft Hosted Exchange platform gives organisations of all sizes access to the world’s most popular email platform on a scalable, lost cost per user basis.
Hosted Microsoft Exchange removes the burden of having to manage expensive and complicated internal email systems by placing Exchange ‘In the Cloud’ meaning organisations, both big and small get access to Enterprise class communications on a scalable, granular low cost per user basis.

Hosted Exchange works by simply replacing the infrastructure normally associated with providing Exchange with a "service” delivered from our data centres. Instead of managing servers, infrastructure and software, you can simply take email services on-demand as and when you need.

Whilst the user experience is identical to using a locally installed application, the Hosted Exchange gives you access to the latest email services for a low monthly subscription fee, rather than having to buy, install and manage the software yourself. Hosted Exchange also allows you to access your email from anywhere, and from any device.

As a user, you simply enjoy the benefits of not having to worry about your Exchange or Small Business Server system. We place your Hosted Exchange service on Enterprise class hardware and software housed in state of the art datacentres ensuring your email is always up, working and available.
