Basic Difference Between Exchange 2010 Enterprise and Exchange 2010 Standard

Exchange 2010 Enterprise or Standard

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is available in two editions;  Enterprise or Standard.  The basic and only real difference between the two Exchange editions is the number of databases you can have on a single host server installation instance. The database count includes either mailbox or public folder type.

  • Exchange Server 2010 Standard Edition can host up to 5 databases on a server.
  • Exchange Server 2010 Enterprise Edition can host up to 100 databases on a server.

That’s the basic and only real difference between the two versions.

Differences of Exchange 2010 Standard vs Enterprise: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Required for DAG

Please Note:  For  Exchange 2010 Client Access Server (CAS) and Hub Transport Server (HT) Redundancy for providing High Availability and Failover in a Server, you will  need the  Enterprise version of the server OS.  To enable these HA and redundancy features, windows 2008 enterprise or windows 2008 R2 enterprise versions are required.

For small and medium sized businesses with 1 to several hundred user mailboxes, the standrad version of Exchange 2010 will suffice.
