Windows Server Products - Exchange Server

[By: Alex Robertson]

Microsoft Exchange Server is a collaborative software suite developed by Microsoft. It is a member of the Microsoft Servers product line and is used frequently by enterprises using Microsoft solutions. Amongst the major Exchange's features are: e-mail, calendaring, contacts and tasks, support for mobile and web-based access to information, support for data storage.

Microsoft Exchange Server provides many significant improvements in Exchange Server messaging. Exchange builds extensively on the technologies of earlier versions of Microsoft Exchange, and includes many new features and improvements to provide a more secure, flexible, and scalable messaging system than ever.

Exchange was designed specifically to work with Microsoft Server 2003 or later. Running Exchange on Windows Server provides several benefits, such as improved memory allocation, reduced Active Directory replication traffic, and rollback of Active Directory changes. Running Exchange on Windows Server also lets you take advantage of new features, such as the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and cross-forest Kerberos authentication.
