Microsoft Exchange Server vs Microsoft Exchange Online

Average on-premise Exchange Server deployment

Average cost of Exchange Server deployment 
for a 20 user office = $13,500

This cost includes:
  • Server Hardware
  • Exchange Software & Licenses
  • Annual Security Certificate
  • Installation Labor
Average cost of monthly ongoing 
on-premise Exchange Services = $350

This cost includes:
  • Spam Filtering Service
  • Cloud Data Backup
  • Maintenance Labor
The result is a higher total cost of ownership and slower return on investment for not much added value.

Microsoft Exchange Online Enterprise Plan

Cost of Exchange Online Enterprise Plan 
for a 20 User Office = $160/mo

This cost includes: 
  • Spam Filtering
  • Cloud Data Backup and Archiving 
Benefits of Exchange Online:
  • No need for server hardware
  • No Exchange software or licensing costs
  • No Security Certificates necessary
  • No ongoing proactive maintenance required
  • Simplified installation labor
  • Outlook web access for both Apple & Android devices
  • And maybe the best benefit of all… Microsoft Office 2013 Outlook Client Software is included with a 50GB Mailbox Size per user! Let’s see an Exchange Server supporting 20 users do that! 
The end result of moving your email to the cloud is a low ongoing monthly expense with no upfront capital expenditure, plus all the benefits and flexibility to meet your business communications needs.

Did you know that Windows XP is going end-of-life? This means that Microsoft Outlook 2013 will not run on Windows XP. That could mean no email for you!
