Intermedia.NET is proud to be the world's first company allowing enterprises to outsource Exchange 2007

New York, April 2, 2007 -- Intermedia.NET, the global leader in Microsoft Exchange hosting, has launched the world's first Microsoft Exchange 2007 outsourcing service for midsized companies. The Intermedia.NET solution allows midmarket companies to adopt Exchange 2007, without the high costs of an in-house deployment.

Industry analysts say that 80% of midmarket companies will benefit if they outsource Microsoft Exchange, and Intermedia.NET calculates that a typical midsized company will save over $100,000 dollars by avoiding an in-house deployment. Because Exchange 2007 demands the latest, most expensive hardware with full redundancy, as well as requiring that Outlook 2007 be purchased separately, outsourcing becomes especially attractive.

"Intermedia.NET is proud to be the world's first company allowing enterprises to outsource Exchange 2007," said Serguei Sofinski, Intermedia.NET CEO. "Running on an enterprise-grade platform with EMC storage, any midsized company looking at Exchange 2007 can now consider outsourcing instead of a costly on-premise deployment. With Exchange 2007, the business case for a hosted solution is an extremely strong one."

Customers of Intermedia.NET have a choice of either Enterprise plans - clustered, SAN-based Exchange solutions - or Custom Enterprise plans, which offer dedicated Exchange servers for their organizations. Costs start at $1295 per month for 100 users.

In recent years, a huge number of companies have seen major savings after outsourcing Microsoft Exchange, because hosted Exchange services remove the hidden costs of ongoing maintenance, as well as the high upfront costs of purchasing and deploying the solution. Beyond the cost factor, many companies choose to outsource their mission-critical messaging system for added benefits including Fortune 500 reliability, the integration of wireless access (BlackBerry, ActiveSync and Good Mobile), advanced anti-spam and compliance options.

The most costly upfront expenses with an in-house Exchange solution include multiple 64-bit servers, Exchange 2007 server licenses, and end user licenses for Exchange 2007, Outlook 2007 and Windows Server 2003, for each employee. Most midmarket companies who deploy an in-house Exchange environment also employ a salaried Exchange administrator to manage the solution. Intermedia.NET's hosted Exchange solution for midmarket companies manages the entire environment and includes all hardware and licenses within the monthly price of the hosted service.
