What is Hosted Exchange?

Microsoft Exchange is the world’s leading platform for unifying a business’s email, calendar, and contacts. More than 470 million mailboxes worldwide leverage Exchange to communicate, collaborate and compete at a Fortune 50 level.

In the past, Microsoft Exchange was deployed on-premises. This meant you needed to buy a server, pay for licenses, and hire an IT person to install and maintain it.

With Hosted Exchange, your Exchange server is installed and managed in the cloud, as a service, with no fees upfront. You get all the functionality of Exchange with none of the overhead. CompuSys performs all installation, maintenance, upgrade and support activities on your behalf for a predictable monthly fee.
