Get Started: Hosting your Business Emails

As technology advances we are moving towards a model that encourages user collaboration to improve communication and workflow in the workplace. Microsoft Exchange 2016 helps give you a lower cost option for hosting your company emails, managing schedules, and customization of messaging service applications. Whether you are a small business or enterprise Microsoft Exchange is a sure way to increase your employees' productivity.

New Features

Outlook on the Web:

This revision of Outlook.com is the new portal users will sign in to access their Office apps. It features a web-based email client, a calendar tool, contact manager, and task manager. This helps centralize the integration to Office 365, which is a model a majority of businesses are moving towards for the future.

MapiHttp: Default Protocol

Outlook Anywhere is now deprecated and the main protocol has been changed to MapiHttp. This will be the defaulted option for Outlook 2013 or newer and will prove to be a more efficient means of connection to Outlook programs. Even on sporadic WiFi networks, the Outlook client is proven to be much faster compared to Outlook Anywhere.

Office 365 Integration

There is a huge emphasis on making all of your Office 365 applications work with the new server environment software. It seems Microsoft is pivoting their licensing towards a subscription model. Although this was not a popular option in the past, it is slowly catching on as the norm in computer software. The main benefits of the subscription program is constant updates and not having to worry about the software support expiring. Of course, a majority of business owners still prefer owning the software license rather than paying a monthly or yearly subscription fee.

Preferred Architecture

Exchange 2016 has combined the old Client Access server role and Mailbox server role into just Exchange 2016 Mailbox server role. Now enforced by default, the Preferred Architecture is designed with business requirements in mind by removing complexity and redundancy where necessary.

Coexistent Instances

Microsoft Exchange 2013 and 2016 share very similar architecture, so this allows them to very simply coexist in server arrays. Exchange 2013 Client Access is able to proxy requests directly to the Exchange 2016 mailbox and vise versa. This integration allows users to continue working without having to worry about the location of their mailbox.

Network between Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013

In summation there are a few notable improvements with the new Microsoft Exchange 2016 variation. Just like in previous versions, the server software license will be required along with CALs per each User or each Device. If you need to upgrade, or are simply looking for an email hosting solution, Trusted Tech Team has got you covered!

    I’m currently running Exchange Enterprise 2010 (DAG) with two mailbox servers and one frontend (OWA) server. I’m looking to upgrade to 2016, but not sure if I want to keep the servers onsite or go cloud.
