Recently, KEMP Technologies revealed that its KEMP LoadMaster 2200 load balancing appliances have been deployed by the Kennet School across its new email hosting Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange 2010 environment.
With the architecture changes in MS Exchange 2010, the educational institution realized that a load balancing solution would be needed to see the best results from its system and deliver failover redundancy to ensure users continue to receive Exchange services even in the event of server failure.
System Professional, a KEMP partner, helped the school's IT team to migrate to the nex-generation offering via installing the KEMP LoadMaster 2200 devices, certified by Microsoft for use with Exchange 2010.
"The KEMP load balancers were chosen for their ease of management, competitive pricing and overall product functionality," said Dan Haines, Network Engineer at Kennet School, in a press release. "System Professional provided a valuable expert knowledge of Microsoft Exchange 2010 and the installation and setup was completed over a weekend ready for staff and pupils on the Monday morning."
With features like global address lists, calendaring, password syncing and delegated access, the KEMP load balancers have helped improve communications and efficiency. In the near future, the school's IT team plans to introduce more new Exchange applications to be utilized by additional staff members.
Moreover, the Kennet School's interactive virtual learning environment - FROG - is now fully integrated with Exchange 2010 for use by all pupils.
The email hosting space is continuing to expand at a rapid pace. A major company deeply rooted in this industry is SherWeb, a company that powers a hosted Exchange 2010 solution which enables users to share documents, calendars, contacts and tasks at the office, on smartphones including Apple’s iPhone (News - Alert), or in an Outlook Web App.
