Could Google Apps Replace Your Exchange Server?

By August 8, 2008Strategy

Google Apps can provide an intriguing replacement for Microsoft Exchange server. Not only can you host your domain name, but all of your email will be stored off-site in Google’s redundant facilities unsusceptible to outages with your local ISP.

Google Apps provides solutions for small and large businesses by giving your employees the next-generation communication and collaboration tools they need to manage electronic communications, share and publish information and stay connected while on the go. Sharing calendars, docs and email from your reservation system or real estate contact forms all hosted by Google, so there’s no hardware or software to download, install or maintain. With Google Apps, you can afford to provide each and every employee with the tools they need to succeed. Google Apps gives everyone at your organization a custom email address, tools for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations, a shared calendaring system and access to a flexible intranet system. Standalone security and compliance services are also available.

Google Apps currently has two available editions Standard and Premier. Standard Edition is Google Apps free edition and Google Apps Premier Edition is $50.00 / per user account / per year.
