Microsoft entered the hosting infrastructure market in 2005 with their acquisition of Frontbridge. Over the past 5 years, Microsoft has continually and incrementally improved their hosted solutions to include greater numbers of services.   They have expanded beyond hosted Exchange services to hosted SharePoint and Office Communications Server.

Within the past year, Microsoft has created a product suite that incorporates all the hosted versions in an easy to use, quick to provision service named Business Productivity Online Standard Suite (BPOS).  Services in this suite include:

  • Exchange Online
  • SharePoint Online
  • Office Communications Online
  • Office Live Meeting

New Signature has provided hosted solutions to our clients for many years and as a Microsoft Gold Partner we began testing BPOS as soon as it was released.  We are very impressed with the service and have migrated a number of clients to BPOS.  BPOS is a great fit for organizations that need high availability and comprehensive security, but don’t want to make a substantial capital investment in hardware and software to achieve these goals.  Contact New Signature today to find out if BPOS is a good fit for your organization.
