What does Hosted Exchange mean?

Hosted Exchange is a version of Microsoft Exchange Server that is delivered and accessed from a remote server or through a cloud service provider. It is a Microsoft Corporation proprietary product that provides the same and enhanced functionality of a standard exchange server, but with a different delivery model.

Hosted Exchange is also known as Exchange Online.

If you currently work or have worked in a corporate environment, it’s a good chance that you were using a Microsoft Exchange powered e-mail solution. Exchange is running on e-mail servers in a vast majority of the business world these days. Many of these servers are administered and maintained by the company I.T. department. Since an Exchange server can handle tens of thousands of e-mail accounts, it’s meant for small business sized companies and up. By itself, a dedicated Exchange server is overkill for most individuals: you don’t need the horsepower and capacity that comes along with the job of maintaining it for a single user.

Hosted Exchange is a viable option for those individuals that want to harness the power of an Exchange server but don’t want to pay for a full server license, buy the appropriate hardware and deal with the maintenance. Much like the web hosting industry where a company bundles many customers on a single web server, Exchange hosting (or Hosted Exchange) is a cost-effective option for individuals. The Exchange service provider bundles many customer mailboxes on a single Exchange server for a monthly or yearly fee. 

What does Hosted Exchange provide? 

Obviously, you have a centralized e-mail server with a hosted Exchange plan, the same as you have with Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and the like. There are a few key differences however; some may help you decide if you need a hosted Exchange plan or not. 

One key feature is that Exchange provides not just your mail and all of your e-mail folders, but your Calendar appointments, Contacts, Notes and Tasks. With one single client connected to Exchange, you can keep all of these artifacts in sync. The ability to have all of this information stored, integrated and backed up in one central location is a good reason to have a hosted Exchange account. 

The second reason is the support for Direct Push synchronization. This is the ability to have all of my information on the Exchange server sent to my many mobile devices in near real-time. I don’t have to worry about a manual send and receive function, nor do I need to synchronize my clients with the Exchange server: it simply stays in sync.   

If you’re on the road and want to always be up to date with your e-mail, contacts, appointments, notes and tasks, a hosted Exchange plan with the right mobile device can definitely boost your productivity at a reasonable price.
