This is my third and final excerpt for my Protecting Microsoft Exchange Server Data Protection whitepaper series. You can view my first and second postings, or you can download my full whitepaper for instant gratification.
Many small- and medium-sized businesses turn to Windows in an attempt to reduce their operational costs through maintaining a homogeneous operating environment. The hope is that the job of monitoring and managing Windows, including protecting the Windows systems, associated storage, and applications will be pretty simple. After all, it’s not a big deal to “clean a few Windows,” right?
These businesses quickly find out that there’s a lot more “windows to clean” than they originally thought – and that the “cleaning” itself is a good bit more complicated than they anticipated!
What these businesses discover is that Windows itself presents unique challenges and its own type of heterogeneity as Windows versions evolve and different types of Windows client and server operating systems and applications are adopted. Unitrends is uniquely positioned to handle the complexity of Windows environments. We’re a company that from its beginning has supported many types of operating systems and applications – both within the Windows ecosystem and outside of the Microsoft environment as well. Our approach to Exchange Server support is consistent with our continual commitment to offer state-of-the-art data protection while providing the lowest total cost of ownership to our customers.
