RapidScale is an industry-leading company in the delivery, design, and support of Microsoft Exchange. Our Service Level Agreement on CloudMail is 100% uptime and all support is U.S. based as we take pride in providing world-class service.

Microsoft Exchange introduces built-in integrated email archiving, retention, and discovery capabilities that save costs and simplify the process of preserving business communications. RapidScale’s Hosted Exchange solution delivers on the capabilities demanded by mobile workforces. Access your business email, calendar and contacts on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, and Web browser so it can always go where you go. With Exchange, you will remain in control of your solution by tailoring it to your specific needs and ensuring that your communications are always available.
Microsoft Exchange 2010 combines built in anti-spam and encryption technologies with an advanced anti-virus infrastructure for efficient management of a wide range of security threats. You will see a high standard of physical and digital security for your data as it receives reliable monitoring and support from our team.

We guarantee 24x7x365 uptime and provide 100% US-based support to our clients. Our Cloud Engineers and Sr. Cloud Consultants are all internal employees and are dedicated to providing you with first-class support. You will have a dedicated Sr. Cloud Consultant to oversee your account specifically and assist with the transition.

Outlook Web App in Microsoft Exchange helps users be more efficient and productive across platforms and locations by giving them access to email, voice mail, instant messaging, SMS text messages, and more inside all popular browsers. Reduce complexity for your users and instead, offer secure access for multiple approved applications.

Our pay-as-you go plan is affordable and will help to remove the budgeting burden as well as hardware acquisition costs. Benefit from the latest version of Microsoft Exchange, and receive the latest software and security updates. With CloudMail, you will save short- and long-term costs while receiving superior support. This is how RapidScale’s CloudMail differs from its competitors.

While email is critical to your business, managing your Exchange server in-house can be expensive, time consuming, and full of hassles. Working with an external service provider can help you eliminate those headaches and take advantage of the full functionality of your Microsoft Hosted Exchange server.

Our CloudMail product set is built on our high performance fully redundant physical hardware platform just like the rest of our products sets. Uniformity between hardware and data centers ensures consistency across the board, eliminating the possibility of asymmetrical performance and simplifying diagnostics. For storage, we run NetApp controllers and storage shelves, Cisco UCS blade chassis for compute, and Cisco Nexus routers for core routing.
