Exchange Server 2016 introduced innovations through changes in the architecture. These changes have brought more advantages and features to the users, such as:
1. Faster failover and failure isolation
Exchange 2016 uses Database Availability Group (DAG) where they split up the process for each database so they can isolate issue on a single database. DAG still relies on Windows Server clustering and continuous replication, but Exchange 2016 has reduced the time required for failover due to improvements in transaction log code and on the passive database. All monitoring and recovery features are now more than just to keep up the component uptime, instead, it focuses on the user experience by alerting the administrator to proactively restore services or with the automatic server failover.
2. Outlook on the web and Outlook app feature enhancement
Other than the features that have been mentioned above, Outlook has improved the way it handles user activities for the best of their experience. The inbox panel now has the most optimized view for reading and easily take actions such as archiving, deleting or moving a message, all with a single click of a button. It also now has the capability to quickly undo the last mailbox action taken by the user with just a single click on the undo button.
Contact linking now supports import contact from LinkedIn account and calendar also has implemented new features such as email reminder for events and the ability to propose new time directly in a meeting invitation. You can still create the offline .pst backup file for mailbox item from Outlook app. For you is good to know that Iperius can back up all calendars, activities and contact lists; and also restore them, keeping all attributes.
