Steven Elop, President of Microsoft Business Division announced the general availability of Exchange 2010 yesterday at Tech Ed Europe. He announced Forefront 2010 protection for Exchange 2010 and the integration of the two products. Exchange 2010 is a release with several significant advances specifically around message management, archiving and unified communications. We have demonstrated some of the features at several launch events we have hosted with Microsoft in the Mid-Atlantic. The combination of Exchange 2010, Outlook 2010, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 is driving many business to implement a server and desktop refresh. Ultimately the upgrade will drive efficiencies in the marketplace with the enhancements in these products.
