Is Exchange 2013 all About Management?

Exchange 2013, expected early next year, is now available as a preview -- something Microsoft sometimes calls a beta. In fact, Microsoft has a half dozen or so different terms for beta software, don't ask me why.

The new Exchange has a bevy of features aimed at easing configuration, management and thwarting attacks.

One main issue is a new architecture that centralizes items such as roles and administration. For instance, there are only two server roles available: mailbox and client access.

On the admin side, the control panel and management panel are now combined.
