what is exchange

Microsoft Exchange Online is a cloud based version of the traditional Microsoft Exchange Server.  This is the heart and soul of your email system and ‘Exchange’ is the platform which gives users access to email, calendar, contacts, and tasks from PCs, the web, and mobile devices.

Organizations that use the Microsoft Office365 platform with Exchange Online have all of the advantages of the above services, without the requirement or burden of an on-premise server of yesteryear.

As Microsoft partners, the question that we often get asked with cloud services is ‘Where is my data?’. Your data is hosted, along with other MS365 Services, on Microsoft servers in dedicated data centers. These servers support multiple customers simultaneously and boast a financially-backed service level agreement uptime of 99.99% – So you can rest assured that your data is safe and you’re going to be free from downtime.
