MS pumps out near-ready version of Exchange Server 2010

Release Candidate enters fray

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Microsoft has spun out another test build of Exchange Server 2010.

Redmond announced the arrival of Release Candidate 1 of the backend email software yesterday.

MS also said in a blog post that more than ten million people were testing the online service version of Exchange Server 2010 across the globe in what it described as “the broadest server beta in Microsoft history”.

However, the company didn’t confirm when the product will hit RTM. It’s expected to be pushed out by Microsoft before the end of this century decade, and the fact that Exchange Server 2010 has now reached RC status suggests that it could rock up soon.

The company additionally released RC1 test builds of its Forefront Security product that helps battle malware and spam in Exchange Server 2010. ®
