November 2012 – When it comes to business email hosting, if you are new to this, you are in for quite a shock. You see, the premier business email service out there these days is Microsoft Exchange. Now while there is nothing wrong with Exchange on the surface, this email hosting service is not necessarily geared towards smaller businesses. when you have a large business and you need a big time hosting plan, Exchange is a good option. But for smaller businesses Exchange is far too large and far too expensive to justify.
Another alternative to Microsoft Exchange is SBS or Small Business Server. However, to believe that this service does what the name seems to suggest, giving a low cost alternative for email hosting to smaller businesses is a very naive way to look at what they offer. Much like Exchange, this service is not really extended for the small business as is represented by it’s high cost and it’s large scale packaging.
So what is a small business owner to do when they are looking for an affordable email hosting service. One very viable solution is Dataglide. What separates Dataglide from other email hosting services is that unlike SBS or Exchange, Dataglide caters to all users big and small. They do this by providing scalable email hosting solutions.
What this means is that you only get what you need. This makes your system more effective and also more affordable. When you are ready to scale up or perhaps scale down, you can do so easily with Dataglide without the upgrade affecting your current hosting service. What this does is puts you in the divers seat as to how much hosting you’ll need and how much you’ll have to pay, unlike SBS or Exchange that has a take it or leave it business mentality.
When it comes to running a business one of the worse things you could do is waste resources and money, but that is exactly what Microsoft Exchange and SBS would have you do. However, with Dataglide you get only the email hosting you need at a price you can afford. No wasting large email hosting plans on small capacities and no wasting money on a service that you don’t need on such a large scale.
