About Show #533
What's the latest on Exchange 2016? Richard chats with Microsoft PFE Mike O'Neill about some the things he's seen lately in Exchange world. Mike talks about the hybrid world of mail these days, with on-premises Exchange servers working alongside of Office 365 Exchange Online. The conversation also digs into the affect that feature testing in the cloud has had on the on-premises edition of Exchange - the quality of updates is better and you can have confidence in doing updates during the day with zero downtime - with caveats of course! This may be the last version of Exchange on-premises, but the features will keep coming!
Mike endeavors to empower engineers as much as possible with sharing of information and overall IT knowledge. He is currently a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer (PFE) focusing on Exchange and Active Directory. With ongoing delivers of Active Directory and Exchange Risk Assessment Prgrams, and Exchange workshops including: Exchange PowerShell, Administration and troubleshooting, Migration courses, and the O365: Exchange Administration and Configuration course. He is continually looking for new methods to help improve IT engineer’s efficiency and knowledge about Exchange and AD. Mike is also a contributing editor to the Exchange Team Blog site (eHelo) http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/ and occasional posts to his general TechNet blog http://blogs.technet.com/b/mconeill/
