Exchange Server 2016 for on-premises customers now available

Last week, we launched the new Office, a set of integrated apps and services that empowers teams to do and achieve more. Today we announced the release of Exchange Server 2016, which brings key innovations in email, collaboration and calendaring in this Office release to on-premises customers.

There’s a lot to like in the new Exchange for both users and IT admins. It integrates with Outlook, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business to enable new collaboration capabilities related to sharing, editing and receiving documents without ever having to leave Outlook. Inbox enhancements in Outlook 2016 and Outlook on the web, such as inline previews for URLs and video, help you stay focused and productive. Enhanced search capabilities deliver faster performance and more accurate results.

IT admins will benefit from a simplified architecture that reflects the way we deploy Exchange in Office 365 and brings a new level of reliability with automated repair and faster recovery. Expanded Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and faster, more reliable eDiscovery help your organization comply with legal requirements. Exchange 2016 gives on-premises customers a future-ready messaging foundation, with built-in hybrid capabilities and options for tapping into cloud services.

You can learn all about these and the many other capabilities in Exchange Server 2016 over on the Exchange team blog.
