The challenge: Provide for the high availability of Exchange data while reducing costs
Microsoft Exchange has become a mission-critical application. Studies show that a majority of business-critical information resides in message stores and that the typical Exchange user spends a significant part of the workday in the Exchange environment. IT administrators are challenged to meet stringent Exchange availability service-level agreements (SLAs) while managing a proliferation of Exchange servers and identifying ways to reduce overall administration and management costs.
