For businesses seeking a powerful virtual server hosting solution, plans featuring a Microsoft Exchange Server may be the best place to start, according to a recent Web Hosting Geeks report.
The report said Exchange hosting plans are in use by thousands of businesses that use the service to improve their overall productivity and efficiency. Furthermore, the powerful hosting model can save companies significantly, as the software to run exchange can be quite expensive when deployed independently of a hosting plan.
In a Windows Exchange Server hosting plan, users are able to leverage Exchange to provide a foundational resource to distribute server resources between management and control panel software, the report said. For example, a user running a Hyper-V VPS may use Exchange to assist with management and maintenance tasks associated with the hypervisor.
Overall, the report said Windows Exchange servers are usually among the most reliable and stable platforms on the market. For the most part, these devices are used for high-end hosting plans, such as dedicated or VPS servers, the report said.
According to a recent TMCnet report, Exchange is also a valuable tool to facilitate communication between Microsoft SharePoint and other applications in a hosted environment.
