Amazon Web Services has launched Amazon WorkMail, a managed business email and calendaring service in the cloud.
Amazon WorkMail enables users to send and receive email, manage contacts, share calendars, and book resources using the same email applications — Microsoft Outlook, their Web browser, or their iOS and Android email applications — without buying and managing hardware or licensing email server software.
This apart, Amazon WorkMail integrates with existing corporate directories, and has security features to control and protect their data.
Amazon WorkMail delivers on-demand access of a managed cloud service that works with popular email clients and also has the security controls. Amazon WorkMail users will be free from the ongoing patching, back-up, and upgrades involved in maintaining these systems.
It is fully compatible with Microsoft Outlook, and customers can quickly integrate Amazon WorkMail with their existing corporate directory, choose encryption keys, select the location where they want their data to reside, and pay only for the mailboxes they create.
