The most important innovations of Exchange Server 2016 at a glance
Exchange Server version 2016 includes a number of important innovations as well as enhancements from the previous version, Exchange Server 2013. The primary development goal was to optimize the server architecture, reducing the number of server roles to two: Mailbox and Edge Transport. In addition, scaling was simplified and support for various cloud services was improved.
Outlook on the Web
Web access to Exchange Server, previously known as "Outlook Web Access" or "Outlook Web App", has been extensively revised by Microsoft and also renamed "Outlook on the Web".
In the process, the web interface was also optimized so that Outlook can be used without any problems on a smartphone or tablet running Android or iOS without first installing the Outlook app. In addition to Microsoft's Edge and Internet Explorer 11 browsers, Outlook also works with Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox without any major restrictions.
The "Sweep" function simplifies the management of emails from a certain sender. For example, these can be stored for a defined number of days, or only the most recent message is saved.
The calendar has also been given a new look and new features. These include email reminders for calendar events and the ability to suggest a different time for meeting invitations.
The eDiscovery search architecture has also been revamped in Exchange Server 2016; it now works asynchronously and decentrally, using multiple servers. As a result, searches are now much faster, plus when you enter a search term in Outlook 2016 or Outlook on the Web, suggestions appear based on frequently used contacts, the emails in your inbox, and previous searches. Contextual filters such as date ranges and related senders help make it easier to find the information you're looking for. Outlook on the Web also allows users to search their own or others' calendars.
Another advantage of the new architecture of Exchange Server 2016 is the also improved scalability in search. The number of mailboxes that can be searched has been increased from 5,000 to 10,000 for mailboxes as well as for archive mailboxes, so that a total of 20,000 mailboxes can be searched simultaneously.
In Outlook 2016 or Outlook on the Web, files stored in the Microsoft cloud services OneDrive for Business and SharePoint 2016 can now be inserted in an email as a link, instead of as a file attachment as before. The access rights can be customized and set automatically. The recipient can open the linked file directly, just like an attachment.
Hybrid cloud support
Exchange Server 2016 also supports hybrid scenarios. This means that it makes no difference whether a mailbox is located on a local server or in the cloud. Local email boxes can also be used with the cloud extensions Exchange Online Archiving and Azure Rights Management.
Data loss prevention with DLP
Data loss prevention (DLP), a transport rules enhancement, has been added to data security. DLP in Exchange Server 2016 helps protect sensitive corporate data from unauthorized access. Data Loss Prevention includes new methods for classifying and sending confidential information without hindering users' workflow. If there is a risk of data being intercepted, users receive a corresponding warning both in Outlook and in the web version. DLP also warns users when they receive tampered emails or emails with attachments that contain malware.
In order to use the DLP features for Exchange Server 2016, a
Enterprise Client Access License (CAL) is required.
Default protocol MAPI over HTTP
Outlook's default protocol for communicating with Exchange is MAPI over HTTP in Exchange Server 2016. MAPI over HTTP improves the reliability and stability of Outlook and Exchange connections, as well as the visibility of transport errors. In addition, Outlook connects to the server much faster after a hibernation or network change. In doing so, MAPI over HTTP supports the continuation of an interrupted connection, and no reconnection is required for brief disconnections.
Windows Exchange Server 2016 Standard Edition
Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 in the Standard edition enables flexible, transparent and cost-efficient communication in a company. This includes, above all, the professional joint management and archiving of e-mails, contacts and appointments. Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Standard supports up to 5 mailbox databases and is therefore ideally suited for small to medium-sized companies.
The simplified architecture of the Exchange functionality has two roles: Here, the "Mailbox" role provides the main functionality. It receives client requests and maintains databases. The "Edge Transport" role, on the other hand, provides additional security for the transmission of e-mails between the internal network and the Internet. The virtualization rights of Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Standard allow the operation of 2 virtual machines or 2 Hyper-V containers.
Windows Exchange Server 2016 Enterprise Edition
The most important difference compared to the Standard edition is the possibility to operate far more databases with the Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Enterprise edition. Up to 100 mailbox databases per server with up to 2 terabytes each can be integrated and managed, making Enterprise particularly suitable for larger companies and organizations or institutions.
In addition, the Exchange Admin Center offers the use of functions such as Office 365 groups and Data Loss Prevention. Data Loss Prevention not only prevents confidential information from being passed on to unauthorized persons, but also, with the integrated Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) and SmartScreen filter technology, prevents potentially harmful messages from ending up in a mailbox.
Further, users benefit from centralized data storage as well as control of storage needs and compliance requirements.
Compared to the Standard edition, the Enterprise edition for Exchange Server also has more extensive virtualization rights: it allows the operation of an unlimited number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers.
It also offers Storage Spaces Direct, Storage Replica and Shielded Virtual Machines, a new network stack and OneDrive for Business for updating, editing and sharing data in real time.
