Hosted Exchange delivers the capabilities of Microsoft Exchange Server as a cloud-based service. It makes it more useful because of following features:
1. It gives access to users to access email, calendar, contacts and tasks from PCs, web and mobile devices.
2. Complete integration with Active Directory to implement group policies and other administrative work. It prevents data loss and helps to work in accordance with compliance guidelines.
3. With the addition of OneDrive software, changes can be made to files on real time basis.
4. Built in tools to protect the mailbox from spam and viruses. The content stays protected due to policies levied in the guidelines
5. Advanced archiving feature and functionality helps to run archive mailbox parallel to the primary mailbox. This prevents the loss of folders and messages.

The Cloud’s biggest advantages
1. Pricing flexibility
Cloud service providers offer payment models directly related to usage. Organizations incur only the cost differentials to their monthly billing.
Scale down services that are no longer needed; scale up when workload increases. No software licenses to buy; no large upfront investments or effort needed from IT resources. Short-term and contract staff can be added and removed without any long-term commitment.
3. Reduced IT skills requirements
Businesses are not required to possess the IT skills needed for any and all circumstance. Service providers worry about the hardware and software integration and maintenance.
4. Vendor selection flexibility
The cloud model makes vendor switches much easier. Data housed on the cloud can always be migrated to a new vendor whereas on-premise purchases are more likely final.
5. Cost predictability
Per-usage pricing models make it easy to predict costs and run effective budgets based on the number of users and expected workload.
6. Resource flexibility
Organizations no longer have to dedicate scarce time and resources to maintenance, upgrades, add-on installations, and patching because all these activities are handled by the service provider. This makes IT staff more available to work on projects that are integral to business success.
7. Access to the latest technology
The cloud provides access to enterprise-level equipment that is always on the cusp of new technology, whether for business efficiency or data security. This includes access to an email solution that always meets the latest compliance standards.
On-Premise vs. Exchange in the Cloud
Key factors to consider
Each new release of Microsoft Exchange comes with improved capabilities to enhance business communications and productivity. But it also requires having increased specialization in managing the platform. When considering any on-premise email solution, the following areas must be optimized to ensure that the system is robust, secure, and able to offer users the functionalities and end-to-end availability they need to work productively.
How much Exchange expertise does your in-house IT team possess? Does your staff have the appropriate skill set to administer Exchange and Active Directory? Strategically speaking, how important is it for your organization to acquire and retain the talent needed to efficiently manage your email environment as Exchange becomes increasingly sophisticated? Is it cost-effective to do so?
What level of performance and uptime are you able to consistently achieve in-house? When experiencing system failure, how quickly can you bring your servers back up? What resource drain is associated with ensuring a highly available messaging service? Have you taken into account the cost of having a fully redundant platform?
How comfortable are you with not controlling your maintenance schedule? How much customization do you need? What about the psychological control you get from being able to go and see your physical in-house servers?
To what degree are you able to protect your servers and data from theft, loss, and disaster? How robust are your infrastructure and security policies? How often do you review and test your systems to prevent failure? Do you perform vulnerability assessment scans and is your critical information encrypted when transferred through email?
Is being able to scale up or down in rapid response to market changes important? How about the ability to rapidly deploy new services or make modifications, change configurations, add/delete users, and update security settings? Does your organization need to consider integration with new collaboration and communication tools? Adding emails may require project implementation time and resources. If you have to create many new users rapidly for a new branch or a new acquisition, do you have all the accesses required to do this quickly?
Reasons to Choose Hosted Exchange
The not-so-small matter of security
To complicate matters, in today’s electronic world, email security is a prevalent and growing concern that is only heightened by the thought of outsourcing the service. Security, along with software control and agility, are all factors that play a critical role in a company’s fundamental ability to compete, and therefore must be addressed in the final decision.
The choice to move from an in-house to a hosted environment can put key decision makers at odds. IT managers responsible for ensuring a reliable and secure email environment may be reluctant to delegate this service to a third-party provider despite the cloud’s clear advantage of not having to fight for budgets every time software and equipment upgrades are required. On the other hand, business managers focusing on assigning IT resources in an economic way may be swayed by the cloud’s promise to liberate resources from the time and effort required for software upgrades and maintenance.
Aligning diverging interests
With cloud computing now in the mainstream, organizations everywhere are re-assessing whether they should keep their Microsoft Exchange environment in-house or migrate it to a multi-tenant cloud environment with a third-party service provider. While Gartner says “cloud computing will become the bulk of new IT spend by 2016”, enough myths and misgivings prevail today to prevent the acceptance of this model for many stakeholders and higher ups in the IT decision-making chain.
Worldwide email users are expected to grow in the next four years to more than 2.7 billion users. It’s easy to dismiss the importance of email and office productivity tools when you think of them in isolation, but feedback gathered during a recent online survey of 348 IT and business professionals confirms that these facilities are ingrained in most core business processes, and critical to their operation.
Email is part of the day-to-day of most corporations; it is nearly inseparable from the act of running business itself. “Worldwide email users are expected to grow over the next four years to over 2.7 billion users. Total worldwide revenues for the Email Market will reach nearly $10 billion by year-end 2013, growing to over $20 billion by year-end 2017, representing an average annual growth rate of 20%.” With such ingrained usage, email tends to suffer from the familiarity that breeds contempt. We all use email and many of us take it for granted. Email commoditization may be fine for the average user, but if you are an IT specialist or a decision-maker, your relationship with email solutions should take on a completely different spin. Email is the core of business communication, a gateway to collaboration and the center from which business relationships are nurtured.
