Getting Started with Exchange Server 2013

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Reduction in server roles to just two; Client Access server and Mailbox server
  • New streamlined Outlook 2013 and Outlook Web App user interfaces, and offline access for OWA
  • No more Exchange Management Console, all administration is now performed using the new web-based Exchange Administration Center and the Exchange Management Shell (using PowerShell 3.0)
  • Improvements to high availability features and manageability
  • Public folders are now stored in mailbox databases and can take advantage of Database Availability Groups for replication and high availability
  • Data loss prevention capabilities that can be integrated into Transport Rules

In Exchange Server 2013, it is two basic building blocks – the Client Access array and the Database Availability Group (DAG). Each provides a unit of high availability and fault tolerance that are decoupled from one another. Client Access servers make up the CAS array, while Mailbox servers comprise the DAG.
