Email Continuity - The Importance of High Availability Email Services

For the majority of businesses today, large or small, email has become the primary communication tool for distributing information of all kinds, whether through internal or external channels.

Email has become an integral part of our daily business and personal lives and when we are without it we are like a Zebra without its stripes. So how do you protect and ensure high availability for this vital application to minimize disruption and maintain productivity for your executive staff, sales, services and other key employees?

Email applications such as Microsoft Exchange Server offer some high availability options such as - Local continuous replication (LCR); Cluster continuous replication (CCR); Standby continuous replication (SCR); and Single copy clusters(SCC) - as part of the technology. However for many SMBs, MS Exchange at $8 or more monthly per user and other available options are simply to expensive.

Net Location's Email Continuity Services Bridges the Gap

Our Email Continuity Services bridge the gap between expensive "enterprise" level technologies and an affordable simple solution that does the job and fits the budget for those SMBs out there that want business continuance through high availability email.

Our Email Continuity Services kick in when you need them and that's if your primary mail server goes offline. If that happens then you can continue to communicate with your own staff and your customers. The price is extremely affordable and the service just works when it neeeds to.

As an example a small business with 10 email users will pay approximately $80 annually for both Backup and Email Continuance. Compare that to some $960 annually for the more expensive alternatives most of which offer "icing on the cake" services that most SMBs really don't need.

Most of us don't think twice about paying hundreds of dollars annually to insure our automobiles. Although we certainly have no expectations of getting into an accident, we sure would not drive our cars without appropriate insurance. Think of Netlocation's Email Backup and Continuity Services as insurance for your email services. While we don't expect our email services to stop functioning the fact is they do and will at some point in time. Our email services are a small price to pay and they just might turn out to be a deal saver for you.
