Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) has partnered with Microsoft’s hosting and solutions provider, Superhub, to jointly launch a hosted Microsoft email exchange service.

The companies claim the venture will enable SMEs to avoid the cost of purchasing and maintaining email servers, while enjoying a monthly subscription arrangement.

The service is designed to equip each email account with 10GB of storage to provide SMEs with corporate-grade email capability.

HGC and Superhub will also offer a range of Microsoft services, and will be designed to suit both hardware and software configurations.

HGC Superhub is designed to provide a 99.99% service level objective, and HGC said it will leverage its local and overseas internet connectivity, combining server resources and cross-border routes integrated with three tier-1 telecoms operators in China to expand its reach.
