Exchange Online brings the functionality of a Microsoft Exchange server to the cloud. It is an email-based collaborative communications server in a highly secure environment.
What does this mean?
Microsoft Exchange Online provides businesses with a powerful cloud-based server for managing employees’ email, calendars, contacts, notes and tasks. Powerful anti-spam and anti-malware protection provides security and peace of mind that your information is safe. Data recovery is embedded if something is accidently deleted.
Exchange Online operates in the cloud meaning that many of the aspects of running the server, such as installation and upgrades, are taken care of offsite by Microsoft. Even the physical server itself is offsite saving your business time, money and hassle.
As part of the Microsoft Office family, Exchange Online integrates seamlessly with other software from the Microsoft Office suite. Exchange Online is intuitive and it works.
What is the cloud?
The cloud is essentially another word for the Internet. Cloud computing allows users to store and access data and programs over the Internet instead of from your computer’s hard drive. This means that files and programs can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection, rather than just on one computer or device.
