Managing a Microsoft Exchange server in-house is a very costly and time-consuming proposition. For a company like exhale, with fast growth and many locations, Exchange hosting services are a perfect option. With 24x7 monitoring and support, a tier-one Silicon Valley datacenter and unbeatable experience running Microsoft Exchange, Intermedia.NET was an obvious choice.
New York (PRWEB) October 16, 2006
Exhale, the fast-growing urban destination spa brand, with 8 stores and plans to grow to 20 in the next 3 years, has outsourced its email to Intermedia.NET, the leader in Microsoft Exchange hosting for small and medium businesses. The move, which promises savings of 70% over the cost of an in-house email server, allows exhale to focus on its rapid expansion in major US locations such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Dallas.
With multiple locations nationwide and an expanding staff, ‘hosted Exchange’ gives exhale an easily expandable email system that is fully managed by specialists from Intermedia.NET. Easy-to-use tools and a Web-based control panel mean that new staff members can be set up with a company email address in a matter of minutes.
Said Stefani Gellman, VP marketing at exhale, “We love the features of Microsoft Exchange, like group calendaring, contacts that are always synced and simple add-ons like BlackBerry service. And with exhale’s growth across the US, getting email that is always up-to-date on any PC, Web browser or handheld is a fantastic benefit.”
Intermedia.NET’s hosted Exchange service gives smaller companies corporate-grade email, with a tier-one datacenter, clustered servers and SAN storage and fully-managed security and daily backups – but without the huge investment of building this system in-house.
Consultant Jeffrey Glazer of At1Security, who oversees IT for exhale, said, “Managing a Microsoft Exchange server in-house is a very costly and time-consuming proposition. For a company like exhale, with fast growth and many locations, Exchange hosting services are a perfect option.

Intermedia.NET CEO Serguei Sofinski said, “Exhale is a great brand and a perfect example of how our Exchange hosting service can transform the IT options of small and medium businesses. In less than one day, we were able to deliver an enterprise-grade Microsoft Exchange infrastructure for exhale employees, at a start-up cost that was 95% less than if they had built the system in-house.”
