Moving Exchange to the Cloud means the emails will be accessible without any interruptions and headache of having to maintain On-premise hardware. The cloud vendors are known for providing higher uptime guarantees. However, users should properly plan the migration process in order to avoid downtime in the transition.

[b]Better Security[/b]
Using Exchange Server in the cloud means lesser machines where Anti-virus software needs to be installed, upgraded, or tested. IT department applies updates automatically & focusses more on troubleshooting issues, providing better security for Exchange Server and confidential data involved. Any small/large businesses can have access to enterprise-level security. Users should always enquire about security standards that the vendor provides before moving to cloud.

Another benefit of moving Exchange to the cloud may involve high cost initially but in the long term, organizations will save money due to reduced capital expenditures on servers and lowers the cost of operation with only a few staff involved. Less time spent on monitoring & resolving problems means more time spent on revenue-generating projects.
