Hardware-based Mail Server

Email is widely used as a form of business communication and overall it is a highly effective communication tool. Advantages of email over traditional mail or telephone communications are cost reductions, lower overhead, and speed. However, spam has been a growing problem over the past few years. The volume of spam has been estimated at 60% of all email traffic. At the very least, spam wastes network resources and is increasingly being used for phishing. Moreover, advanced persistent threat (APT), a combined sustained attack on an organization’s computer systems, spreads its malware via email and poses serious new security concerns to organizations.

Over time, mail server products can be based on 2 architectures: hardware-based and software-only. Setting up a dedicated server allows organizations a customizable server environment that fits their needs. They can choose the platform (CPU, RAM, and disk space) they really need or further implement the software within their virtual infrastructure. Though software components that might deliver all security and networking services common to hardware-based appliances, putting in your own mail server means a big outlay in new equipment, expensive software, and time to manage it all. 

Having a reliable mail server is crucial to most businesses. Therefore, hardware-based mail servers become the best choice for most SMBs.
