Now that more IT admins are getting comfortable with the idea of hosted Exchange, the next challenge is deciding on the best approach to the cloud, and the best provider. In years past, the hosted Exchange market was mostly controlled by third-party vendors, but with Office 365, Microsoft is a strong contender as well. This handbook explores the competition between Microsoft and third-party hosted Exchange vendors, as well as how to make a realistic evaluation of vendors’ offerings based on a company’s specific needs. Other sections cover the pros and cons of fully hosted Office 365 and the potential advantages of opting for a hybrid approach to the cloud. Readers will be able to decide if it’s wise for their company to move everything off-premises or if they need to develop a more gradual strategy to reduce risk and costs.  Access >>>
