Exchange 2010 Migration Made Easy by Mimecast

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – When looking at tackling something like an Exchange 2010 migration, several issues immediately arise, including what time of day to do it. Obviously with email being always on, and Blackberries and smartphones enabling a 24-hour working culture, never is often the answer. Mimecast’s cloud-based solution could be the answer. Providing email continuity services while you are migrating, Mimecast can take the stress out of any migration and give you back one of the most precious of resources – time.

Mimecast can mitigate many of the risks associated with an Exchange 2010 migration while helping keep the project within budget. Organizations should therefore deploy Mimecast before embarking on their migration in order to fully realize the benefit that Mimecast can bring to the process of email management.

Mimecast offers cloud-based email security, continuity and archiving services for Exchange 2010, delivered through a single unified platform. Mimecast’s unified approach ensures a consistent email retention policy, and reduces the risks associated with ancillary email systems by providing email archiving and email continuity.

Benefits of the Mimecast service for Microsoft Exchange 2010 include:

  • Greater consistency and continuity for email users: Whether using Outlook during a system outage or connecting to email via the Web using Mimecast Personal Portal™ (MPP™), Mimecast offers users comprehensive replication of Outlook folder structures for even greater consistency of service.
  • Automated message management controls: Organizations are able to enforce their existing records management policies to email messages in a consistent and automated manner, facilitating adherence to best practice guidelines and meeting regulatory compliance
  • Load reduction on Microsoft Exchange: With Mimecast’s comprehensive security and attachment controls, IT managers can actually reclaim bandwidth. Mimecast technology also uses a cloud archive service, allowing items to be removed from mailboxes much sooner, improving overall server performance.
