Businesses can simply and cost effectively migrate to 123Together.com's Hosted Exchange Service with migration tools for a fraction of the cost of upgrading existing in-house systems.
[ClickPress, Wed Feb 27 2008] 123Together.com, the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions such as hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 and hosted Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1, today announced the availability of migration tools and assistance for small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) who wish to migrate their email from a previous version of Microsoft Exchange Server or another email program to its hosted Exchange Server 2007 SP1 service.
123Together.com's hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 service empowers businesses to take advantage of the same messaging and collaboration tools used by Fortune 500 companies by providing them with immediate access to the latest version of Microsoft Exchange. 123Together.com's hosted Exchange service offers businesses greater functionality, and improved stability including access to Exchange 2007 SP1 features such as a more efficient and easier to use interface for Outlook Web Access, support for mailboxes as large as 15GB, fast performance on 64bit servers, shared and dedicated (including clustered dedicated) server options, instant message searching capabilities and more.
IT managers wishing to utilize Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 in-house are discovering that it will be an expensive and time consuming road ahead. An in-house upgrade requires a significant capital outlay due to the requirement for new 64bit hardware. In place upgrades are not possible from prior versions of Exchange Server to Exchange 2007 and additional personnel may need to be hired or existing staff re-trained for proficiency with the command line administration interface utilized for the management of Exchange Server 2007. Other peripheral applications such as Backup, Anti-virus and mobility software may also require significant upgrades in order to support Exchange Server 2007.
Companies can capitalize on 123Together.com's hosted Exchange Server 2007 SP1 without making investments in technology or personnel. Additionally, customers have the advantage of utilizing this technology without having to manage, monitor and maintain in-house hardware or software on an ongoing basis. Along with full Exchange 2007 SP1 access, customers receive an easy to use web-based administration interface, 24x7 US based phone and email support, and full support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Windows Mobile and Good Messaging Server support. 123Together.com also provides customers with a 99.9% uptime guarantee on its shared servers and a 100% uptime guarantee on its dedicated servers.
"The new hardware and additional financial outlay required for an in-house migration to Exchange Server 2007 SP1 has caused many businesses to rethink a possible upgrade," said Ravi Agarwal, chief executive officer of 123Together.com. "However, by using 123Together.com's Exchange 2007 hosting service, we will work with individual businesses to migrate their mailboxes and data as quickly or as slowly as they require and provide them with automated tools to customize the process to their needs.
