Exchange 2010 Not for Everyone

Some software upgrades are a piece of cake, some are so complex they're not worth it. Exchange 2010, for some, fits in that latter category. The good news and bad news is that Exchange 2010 is far different architecturally from its predecessors, particularly in how it stores files. That's how we make progress. One example is the new "database availability groups," which could take time and money to adapt to, according to a report from Forrester.

Exchange 2010 may also require upgraded third party tools such as security and backup.
