Plus de sécurité

Stronger security

Equip yourself with a completely private solution, managed by our expert teams.

Your Exchange solution is not shared between multiple customers. The resources natively present on your private server are fully allocated to you.

Your server and your email data are hosted in our datacentres in Europe. Since our Exchange solution is hosted in Europe, you are protected against a number of risks associated with overseas legislations, such as the Patriot Act in the US. This means your organisation’s data is completely confidential.

Only people you allow access to can view your emails.

You get your own SSL certificate, or you can transfer one that you already have.

You control the reputation of your email solution and organisation with your dedicated IP.

We carry out a daily backup of your data on the server. This way, in the event of an error or incident, you can restore your server.

We integrate an anti-virus and anti-spam service for more secure messaging.

Plus de flexibilité

More flexibility

Support your business development with our Private Exchange solution, which can host up to 300 user accounts.

For larger-scale projects, we recommend our dedicated Trusted Exchange solution.

You can create a high number of users as soon as you launch your project, and easily add others via the OVHcloud Control Panel.

You can manage everything in just a few clicks via the OVHcloud Control Panel. You will find a set of features to adapt the solution to your day-to-day needs: manage your configuration (anti-spam, anti-virus, etc.), assign accounts (switching from one domain to another at no additional cost), customise the service, and much more.

Easily migrate your current email accounts without losing any data or experiencing any service interruptions, using the OVHcloud Mail Migrator.

Collaboration et mobilité

Collaboration and mobility advantages

Get all the collaborative features offered by Exchange: calendar-sharing, task-sharing and contact-sharing to facilitate interaction and collaboration within your organisation.

Exchange is easy to use on any device, so it is perfect for when you are on-the-go: check your emails via desktop, mobile phone or tablet. This gives your teams and organisation more flexibility wherever and whenever you need it.

Exchange also includes new features to help users manage their calendars more accurately: more comprehensive absence management and restricted meeting forwarding. As an administrator, you can also intervene more easily on employee calendars to delete events, if necessary.

Your questions answered

What is Private Exchange?

Private Exchange is an Exchange 2019 professional email solution, hosted on an OVHcloud private server. With this solution, you can securely access a range of customisation options and configurable user accounts.

What is a Private Exchange server?

The servers linked to our Private Exchange solution are private email servers. This means that these servers, which are maintained by our experts, provide you with all of the resources they have. This method differs from shared servers, where multiple users share hardware resources.

How does Private Exchange work?

When you choose our Private Exchange solution for your company email service, you simply need to enable it from the OVHcloud Control Panel. Next, you can create user accounts and administrators, customise your email settings, and get a clear view of the resources allocated to your private server.
