Today, we saw a post from a Microsoft FTE stating Exchange 2019 is going to be the last on-prem version of Exchange as it stands now.
This means, all of our on-premises passion has to come to an end with Exchange Server 2019. This means a lot to those of us who build their career on Exchange server technology.
I started with Exchange 5.5 in Microsoft PSS and still deploying it. This news makes me feel sad.
Microsoft has not released an official post yet but in a MS Tech Community “David Wilhoit” (Microsoft PFE) post the following and all of the post follower received this email.
Microsoft Product Group removed the post as it has not been announced officially and Microsoft may change the decision.
Well! It was expected after the success of Exchange Online which is growing every year.
However, the organization which are providing Private Cloud services to Criminal Justice or white collar service to the VIP Exchange users may have a cause to worry about the future of their service.
I would urge readers to wait for the office announcement and take is easy. Golden Five Consulting will Support any version of Exchange server from 5.5. to 2019. You can call us as and when you need any help.
