The Redmond Magazine 2011 Readers Choice Poll results are in, and Rackspace comes out on top. This is the first year that the poll included a category for Exchange hosting providers, and Redmond Magazine’s readers overwhelmingly gave their support to the Rackspace Hosted Exchange product with nearly 40% of the vote against five other providers.
The Hosted Exchange product delivers the complex email application and hardware as a cloud-based service managed via an intuitive control panel. IT teams appreciate the service for making their jobs easier and business owners prefer Exchange as a service because it’s less expensive than an on-site deployment. Currently, nearly a quarter of a million Exchange mailboxes are hosted at Rackspace.
