Elabs is a Germany-based hosted service provider that supports IT solutions for resellers and customers of all sizes. Elabs requires a highly available, secure, and cost-effective messaging environment to supply its customers with communication and collaboration services. To improve its service offerings and reduce costs, Elabs deployed a pilot of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, as a part of the Microsoft Rapid Deployment Program. With the new capabilities in Exchange Server 2010, Elabs expects to simplify administration, provide better site resiliency with higher availability, lower mailbox costs, and reduce storage requirements, resulting in a 50 percent reduction in the cost of hosting a mailbox. Using the new messaging environment, Elabs can offer more premium services to help improve its customers' communications capabilities.
