Exchange Server 2019


We wanted to post a quick note on our blog to mention to all that at Microsoft Ignite 2017 we have announced that we will be releasing Exchange Server 2019 as an on-premises release to our customers.

We are looking forward to sharing more details about this release with you in calendar year (CY) 2018. We expect to release a preview in mid CY 2018 with the final release near the end of CY 2018. Please review our TAP program post, as we will be looking for more customers to help us validate this release!

    This was welcome news. It shows the commitment to on-premise Exchange deployments.

      They still have to run their own Exchange environment on O365 so I imagine that we will see a few iterations before we are all forced to cloud :)

    2. Hayden Kirk says:

      Sounds like it’s not staying after this release though.

      1. Hyden, why do you think that this is the case?

        1. MarcK4096 says:

          The phrasing “we will be releasing Exchange Server 2019 as an on-premises release” is a little odd. Why announce you are going to continue doing something you’ve always done? Less suspicious wording would be “Exchange 2019 is slated for release near the end of 2018.” Imagine if GM announced “we have decided to continue selling cars in 2018.”

        They said that about 2016!

    I see many customers already moved to Office 365 and moving to Office 365. So Question here is why on-premise Exchange 2019 require ?

      data security?
      NO CLOUD

    Great news!
    I was telling everyone that (IMHO) the rumors about soon death of on-premise Exchange are greatly exaggerated ;)

  4. David Noorzad says:

    this is great news, especially to those who plan to upgrade. Now we can decide to wait if needed knowing E2019 is coming up…..
