Email hosting has become one of the most commonly-used forms of communication technology in the industry, as providers allow for premium email services along with custom configurations and a large number of accounts.
TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest email hosting news. Here are a few highlights:
BYOD has lately become an increasingly popular trend supported by the majority of enterprises across the board. It’s an unquestionable part of corporate culture, for better or worse. The most that anyone can do at this point is lighten the blow as much as possible.
It looks like Microsoft (News - Alert) is doing just that, as reports have surfaced that the company is planning to make big moves toward embracing BYOD by releasing new updates to its email hosting software, such as Service Pack 1 of System Center 2012. This new trend in technology was partly due to Microsoft’s introduction of Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), a feature that shipped with its Microsoft Exchange Server.
This technology primarily allowed administrators to manage mobile devices connected to Exchange servers. After Microsoft allowed the technology to be published in iOS, OS X, Google (News - Alert) Apps, and Android, it opened the doors for mass-scale BYOD.
One of the best features of Microsoft Office 2013 is the newest iteration of the email hosting program, Microsoft Exchange 2013. This new email hosting server has quite a few different features that makes this easily the best version of Microsoft has put out there.
The company has also toughened up the security offerings of this newest version of the email hosting program, but while there are a ton of new tweaks that make it harder to breach from the outside, there are also some functions that make using this version of the email hosting software that much easier. The best part is that Microsoft Exchange 2013 has a new simplicity that is both included in the deep programming and the way that people are able to use this robust service.

In other email hosting news this week, Veeam Software, a provider of email hosting and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, recently debuted a revamped version of its Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 offering, which will be available in Q4 2012.
This solution provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data on VMware vSphere. It also brings together backup and replication capabilities in a single platform.
For companies relying on email hosting services, the need for data protection is growing and has become an absolute necessity. Luckily, Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 extends Veeam’s leadership in the virtualization data protection market, according to Ratmir Timashev, president and CEO at Veeam Software.
Veeam’s agentless backup and replication solution specifically built for virtualization was once considered niche, but now is the mainstream as virtualization itself.
