Exchange Server 2016 Is Now Available To Download


Microsoft has announced today that Exchange Server 2016 is available for download. This new version brings several improvements over Exchange 2013 including data loss preventions (DLP) managed availability, automatic recovery from storage failures, and the web-based Exchange admin center.

Microsoft says that they spent nearly three years iterating, polishing and refining Exchange Server and you can now get your hands on it. The notable part of today’s announcement is that this version was ‘forged in the cloud’, meaning that this software is what has been powering the millions of Office 365 mailboxes and it is now available for on premise deployments.

Email is still a vital component for communication in the corporate world and even as Office 365 has shown tremendous growth for Microsoft, they know that many corporations like to maintain complete control of their email environments.
