Local versus remote Exchange hosting
Posted on 2007-07-27
We currently host our exchange server locally in the Netherlands. We are investigating managed hosting where all software/hardware would be located in London. The 3rd party is offering a system where all Outlook clients will access the platform via the Internet utilising RPC over HTTPS with a secure sign in. SSL and Kerberos based authentication will be used.
Has anyone seen this type of setup? My main concern is that there may be sluggish outlook access here in the office. Also, if the internet connection goes down there would be no internal email.
