Microsoft Exchange Moving Online

Filed in by Rackspace Blogger | May 19, 2008 10:37 am

Microsoft continues to embrace[1] the software-as-a-service path and has big hopes for hosted Exchange in the future. According the Radicati Group[2], Exchange will run about 210 million corporate email accounts in 2008, growing to 319 million mailboxes in 2012—and Microsoft says 50% of them will be hosted. Not bad. It will be interesting to see if such a big company can make this kind of strategic shift—and how much they’ll involve partners along the way.
