In the last days I started to work with the Microsoft beta of Office 365. After testing it for a while I think this could be a great solution for small & medium businesses. And its a really hard competitor to Google Apps. There are a lot of advantage which Office 365 has agains Google Apps and I think because it is a Microsoft Solution for a lot of companys this is the better way to go, if they already used Microsoft Products or have a Microsoft enviroment.
More options and features instead of Google Apps, for example in Exchange or Forfront which protects Exchange and SharePoint Online for free.
Microsoft Solutions – the most people and companys already use them.
Powershell – This is a really cool feature. You can administrate the whole Office365 online serivce with Windows Powershell.
In the next few weeks I will post some blog post about how to use Office 365 and some Powershell How To posts.Tags: Beta, Exchange, Exchange Online, Lync, Lync Online, Microsoft, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office 365, Office, Office 365, Office365, PowerShell, Sharepoint, SharePoint Online, Windows Powershell Last modified: May 6, 2011
