managed hosted exchange


We all know the importance of email. From SME’s to FT 500 companies it’s a leading business critical application. But how many of us ever think about email going wrong? Until it does, that is. Iron Mountain Digital recently found that 52% of companies had experienced an email failure in the past 12 months. Of those companies, one third had outages of 2 hours or longer and 17% were without email for more than 11 hours.
Email is the de-facto means of communicating in today’s business and in the event of failure this has a major impact on users and your business: • sers’ focus is disrupted including U loss of calendaring/scheduling and contact management functions • oss of links to other business L applications, including Customer Relationship Management and Enterprise Resource Planning • oss of productivity and costs L of resolving the technical issue, including an increase in Tier one help desk calls • reakdown of customer relationship B and loss of sales

Remarkably, according to Microsoft, 90% of Exchange administrators fail to carry out preventive maintenance of Exchange databases until after a disaster has struck. Do we hear the sound of the stable door closing after the horse has bolted?
There’s a huge range of reasons: low understanding of the issues and how to address the problems; no time, resource, or budget for proper maintenance; non-availability of test equipment and the high impact of testing in a production environment. And, most inexcusable of all, administrators perceiving preventive maintenance as time-consuming.
