Intermedia Launches First Hosted Exchange 2010 Service

We are pleased to announce that we just launched the first hosted Exchange 2010 service.

The launch comes directly on the heels of Microsoft’s announcement of the availability of its Exchange Server 2010 software. Our hosted service is available to direct customers and affiliates, adding key features such as support for BlackBerry® wireless solution and free migration from legacy versions of Exchange. Microsoft partners wishing to resell hosted Microsoft Exchange 2010 under their own brand will be able to offer Intermedia’s private label platform later in 2009.

“Intermedia was the first to market with hosted Exchange 2007 and now hosted Exchange 2010,” says Serguei Sofinski, Intermedia’s chief executive officer. “This is about more than innovation for innovation’s sake. We are serving our customers and our partners with sophisticated Fortune 500-grade systems – but in a way that is deeply practical for small- and medium-sized businesses.”

“Exchange 2010 is a powerful tool for Microsoft as it defends its email and collaboration market leadership against online services like Google Apps,” adds Michael Osterman of industry analyst firm Osterman Research. “Microsoft built Exchange 2010 to be delivered as a reliable online service, both from its partners and Microsoft itself. But most small- and medium-sized businesses require more than an online service. They require a range of capabilities around the service, from help with migration to a control panel that makes it simple to administrate Exchange. By addressing these issues, Intermedia continues to position itself as a leading, full-service provider of hosted messaging services. Any small- to medium-sized business considering migration to Exchange 2010 should give Intermedia a very close look.”

One reason is that we use and continually improve our own proprietary control panel – HostPilot® – rather than relying on third-party Exchange control panels. Beginning in May 2009, we also offered a hosted Exchange 2010 beta to our customers and partners, enabling us to test the service. After running the beta for nearly six months, we went live yesterday in parallel to Microsoft’s announcement.

Curious how a 'hosted' environment can be offered when Microsoft says the hosted Exchange 2010 will be released 12 months after the 2010 released yesterday.

Congratulations on being the first to market with hosted Exchange 2010. Any word on migration plans for existing Intermedia Exchange 2007 customers?
