Protect Microsoft Exchange Data With Google Message Continuity

Google’s Postini group Dec. 9 rolled out

Message

Continuity, the latest in a string of software solutions to help

Microsoft’s on-premise e-mail users to get more comfortable with the

Google Apps cloud.

Google Message Continuity preserves the

state of corporate e-mail created in Microsoft Exchange, the e-mail server

software used by most businesses today.

The application duplicates e-mail accounts living on

Microsoft Exchange servers in the cloud, using Google’s Gmail, Calendar and

contacts from Google Apps. Message Continuity constantly syncs Gmail and Exchange,

allowing users to switch from one e-mail environment to the other.

The idea, said Adam Swidler, product marketing manager

for Google’s Postini group, is that if Exchange fails or needs to be

taken down

for maintenance, users can log into Gmail with the same user ID they

use to log into Exchange to access e-mail, calendar and contact data.
