Hosted Exchange 2010 - Overview

Operations, Inc delivers the entire infrastructure required to run Microsoft Exchange 2010 so you no longer need to worry about hardware, licenses, set-up, monitoring, or maintenance. Simply sign up and start enjoying Exchange 2010 email and SharePoint (WSS) services anytime, anywhere on your PC or mobile devices.


Email, collaboration and scheduling tools have become critical factors to the success of any business. Unfortunately, small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) often lack a large IT budget or in-house team to implement and maintain the sophisticated messaging software they need. Yet SMBs need this critical toolset in order to succeed in the marketplace. Microsoft Exchange is used by the majority of large corporations for their email, calendars, contacts and files. Exchange powers the full collaboration functions of Microsoft Outlook 2007, such as group calendars, contacts and file-sharing.



We provide the latest version Exchange 2010 as a hosted service. You can subscribe to this on-demand service for a low monthly fee – instead of paying tens of thousands of dollars upfront for expensive servers and software licenses, hiring specialist IT staff to install and maintain the system and being responsible for a 24x7 infrastructure. We let you focus on your core business.
Hosted Microsoft Exchange 2010 means that we provide all hardware and software, then run and maintain it for you in one of our Tier-4 data centers. You pay a low monthly fee, and can access your email using Outlook® or Entourage® on your desktop, Outlook Web Access (OWA) in any web browser, or wirelessly from a device like the BlackBerry® or iPhone.

  • View colleagues’ up-to-date calendars and schedule meetings
  • Assign and manage company tasks on central ‘to do’ lists
  • Manage contact information of employees and customers and access it anytime
