Updating user information in the exchange server cal
So I suspect the transition to Gmail may not be as abrupt as the e Week story suggests, and Serena will continue to spend on Exchange for a while yet until it can get all its users to switch over.All this argument over details, however, obscures the core message of this story, which is that running Google Apps as your corporate email system is demonstrably and significantly cheaper than Microsoft Exchange.
In fact Mimecast, a company based near me in London, has a thriving Saa S business providing all those ancillary services around Exchange, leaving its customers to run just the bare Exchange servers on-premise. I suspect not, given the kind of headaches I know Exchange causes many companies of its size.I was especially interested to note from the e Week story that Serena has "no current plan to jettison Share Point," which staffers use for collaboration.That rather contradicts last year's story that Serena runs its intranet on Facebook (I was skeptical at the time).Eligible Products Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server are available as AMIs, in a variety of combinations of current and legacy versions.For details, please visit aws.amazon.com/windows/amis.
