Someone is using Exchange 2003 with (Company 65 employees) average usage of 72 GB and 75 GB is limitation, consultant advises them to upgrade to Exchange 2010. The software is free but requires 40 consulting hours for installation. If upgrade to “Enterprise 2003” with unlimited database size is a better or expensive alternative.

I don’t understand this question.

Hello

Actually I will advice that you upgrade to the latest exchange 2010 because it come with a lot of features and functionalities as compared to the old exchange 2003. Though it will take a considerable long amount of time to install, it will be worth it when it comes to handling a large database of the companies employee details, mailing lists and the database information.

Though you may consider to upgrading to exchange 2003 that has unlimited size, it still does not have as many features and functionalities like exchange 2010. Its space is also not as much as that of exchange 2010.

Upgrading is always the best solution, as you can benefit from the latest options implemented in the software. Even think that older versions will not be supported forever.

You referred to the 40 consulting hours as an expenditure that could be avoided. It is true, but if you weigh the advantages versus money spent you will see that it is worth it to spend some money now and enjoy all the possibilities of the new version of the application after that.
