Benefits of an Exchange Migration

A new white paper from Dell presents valuable information to help you pitch an Exchange upgrade to management.

    For those IT professionals who are responsible for the administration, management, and ongoing support of their organization’s Microsoft Exchange environment, the good folks at Dell have recently published a new white paper, “How Dell Helps You Quickly Realize the Benefits of an Exchange Migration,” which you will find to be an excellent resource.

    Especially for those who are working to develop a business case justifying the upgrade to Microsoft Exchange 2010 from Microsoft Exchange 2007 or even the no-longer-supported (but (still widely in use) Microsoft Exchange 2003, the information in this white paper will provide you with much if not all the ammunition you need to build an excellent proposal, including:

    Why Upgrade

    Emphasizing the increased role Exchange plays in most businesses, the paper focuses on the new features in Microsoft Exchange 2010 that reduce costs, increase productivity, and help to manage risk—all considerations close to the heart of any executive decision-maker.  There’s even plain-spoken explanation of how some of the improvements to the internals of Exchange benefit those who upgrade.

    What You Will Need

    After a remarkably clear summary of the capacities required by Exchange in core processors, memory, storage, and more, specific examples are given of Dell servers, storage, and related equipment that will deliver excellent performance when properly installed and configured with Microsoft Exchange.  This section alone will save e-mail administrators significant research time.

    Getting It Done

    For companies with few or no IT resources, Dell offers a comprehensive selection of professional services, with a range of models and approaches that will suit the smallest to the largest of organizations. 


    The white paper concludes with a discussion of the many ways in which organizations will benefit from the upgrade. These include savings on power consumption and physical plant expenses, virtualization, centralized management, and more.

    For any company currently running Microsoft Exchange 2007, or the large number of companies still using Microsoft Exchange 2003, this white paper is a must-read.
