No More Exchange 2010 Support? What Does this Mean?
Exchange Server has a support lifecycle during which Microsoft provides new features, security fixes, bug fixes, etc. This support typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this timeline is called the product’s end of support date. When Exchange 2010 reaches its end of support on October 13, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for problems that might arise
- Bug fixes for issues uncovered that might impact the reliability of your server
- Security fixes that are discovered that make the server vulnerable to security breaches
- Time zone changes
Your installation of Exchange 2010 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, EPC Group firmly advises that you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as your company permits.
Understanding Exchange Online
Exchange Online is the Microsoft Azure-hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform available by subscription through Office 365. Enabling you to utilize cloud-hosted servers, mailboxes and other messaging infrastructure, Exchange Online can significantly reduce out-of-pocket expense and management hassle. This is especially attractive for small to medium-sized organizations with minimal IT resources or in-house technical skills.
Migrating to Exchange Online can be relatively straightforward or it can be agonizingly complex. This depends strongly on your current email environment and your functional requirements.
EPC Group can migrate all the data you have from your traditional email, calendars and contacts to email signature blocks, rules as well as all of your various calendar permissions. We make the transformation from Exchange Server to Exchange Online simple and risk-averse. In addition to this we can work on migrations for every version of Exchange Microsoft ever rolled out.
3 Key attributes of Exchange Online that you can't afford to miss out on.
1. Serious ROI
Making the move to Exchange Online can actually save your organization lots of money. Email servers are massive infrastructure costs and overhead requiring ongoing maintenance and renovations. There is server maintenance, replacement and utility bills that come along with keeping them functional and operating.
Migrating to Exchange Online puts an end to all of that. Instead, in exchange for the price of subscription, all of your server issues are resolved for you. No more server maintenance and installing new updates ever again.
Perhaps the most significant benefit that Exchange brings to your business is its incredible security. Microsoft Office 365 Secure Productive Enterprise brings together a suite of critical business applications with collaboration, mobility and intelligence integrated around an umbrella of security, compliance and trust.
Microsoft has spent literaly billions of dollars on Exchange Online’s data security offering that ensures that your emails are safer within Microsoft’s protected cloud than in your own on-premise server.
Exchange is also compliant with all major compliance standards such as ISO 27001, HIPAA and FISMA.
When it comes to simplicity, ease of use and improved functionality no other email system can rival Exchange Online. Exchange Online provides fast, intuitive and convenient email controls. It has smart look-ups that enable you to quickly find emails within your system. Searches are performed by keyword, author or date, allowing for quick and accurate search results.
While personal emails and other systems can become bombarded with unsafe junk and spam emails before you know it. Exchange Online’s spam filter makes certain that only legitimate emails will arrive in your inbox.
Exchange Online is accessible across platforms like mobile and tablets, as well as being fully integrated with Microsoft’s cloud service. Wherever you have an internet connection, you will be able to access your emails.
Exchange Hybrid Strategy
A hybrid deployment is a combination of on-premises applications or data and cloud-based services. For example, Exchange hybrid solutions could include using an Exchange Server on-premises and Exchange Online in Office 365. Whether you move to Exchange Online in a phased approach, or keep some users’ mailboxes on premises and others in the cloud, you can use an Exchange hybrid deployment to achieve your goals.
In many cases, an organization will want to establish a hybrid environment that supports both local and cloud-based mailboxes. This may be preferable to an 100% cloud model in order to comply with regulatory or business standards, strengthen security, improve availability and provide management flexibility.
In addition, best practices often dictate the creation of hybrid configurations as a temporary step in migrating safely from an on-premises Exchange deployment to Exchange Online.
Mail flow, which is the end-to-end path messages travel from sender to recipient and can also add complexity. For example, the use of 3rd party, cloud-based mail filtering services or multifunction office devices that generate and receive emails can affect how you integrate Exchange Online into your email environment.
