About Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange is a powerful collaboration, messaging, and business mobility platform that helps get work done. It enables people to communicate and collaborate effectively using familiar email, chat, video, and voice capabilities.

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Integration of Microsoft Exchange and MongoDB

Microsoft Exchange was a server program that enabled the sharing of email, calendars, contacts and other information between users on a network. The server component for Exchange is referred to as Microsoft Exchange Server and runs on Windows Server. In addition to the server component, there are client components that can be installed on computers that connect to Exchange servers. Client components include:

Outlook Connector (formerly Outlook Web Access. – provides access to email using an Internet browser.

Exchange ActiveSync – synchronizes email, calendar and contact data with mobile devices via ActiveSync.

Offline Address Book (OAB. – allows users to download a copy of their address book from the server for use when they are not connected to the network.

The Exchange database stores all information, in contrast to some POP or IMAP servers that store only email messages on the server. In addition to storage, the Exchange database provides additional functionality such as message tracking and journaling. The database stores all of the information in a proprietary database format called Extensible Storage Engine (ESE. ESE stores data in B-trees which allows individual items to be accessed directly without having to search through the entire database. This is important because Exchange databases can grow to be very large. For example, it is not uncommon for a mailbox database to have over 100 GB of data after several years of usage.

MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database system featuring high availability, horizontal scaling, and high throughput rates. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc., founded in 2007. MongoDB is written in C++. The software includes a free community edition as well as commercial editions. MongoDB supports master-slave replication and implements sharding, which divides cplections and databases among multiple servers. MongoDB does not support joins; however, it offers a query language called "GridFS" for importing and exporting files in a manner similar to how tables are joined in relational databases.

In this report we will discuss how these two systems can integrate together and what benefits we will get from integration of these two systems.

Microsoft Exchange has been adopted by many organizations worldwide over the last 15 years due to its powerful features and functions. One of the main features of Microsoft Exchange is its ability to store emails and calendar events on the server which provides the users with access to their emails and calendar events even if they are not connected to the internet. However, storing emails and calendar events on the server has some disadvantages as well, such as:

In order to access emails and calendar events, we need to be connected to the internet. If we don’t have internet connection we cannot use our emails or schedule event meetings. Another disadvantage of storing emails on a server is that we may lose emails if there is any issue with our internet connection or if there is some problem on the server itself which causes loss of emails or calendar events. Microsoft Exchange allows us to store unlimited emails and calendar events on the server. To do so it creates one big database file on our hard drive instead of distributing it among multiple smaller files like SQL databases do. This can cause issues if we don’t have enough space on our hard drive for this large file. Another disadvantage of storing emails on a server is that when we delete them from our inboxes, they aren’t really gone but just moved to another fpder called “Deleted Items” which can be easily recovered if someone wants them back. Microsoft Exchange doesn’t give us the option to delete emails or calendar events permanently from our mailboxes or ignore them which gives us more contrp over which emails and calendar events we want to delete forever or move to our Deleted Items fpder. We need to set up an antivirus spution that scans every email coming to our inboxes because we cannot trust that no viruses will be sent by anyone who sends us an email. Another disadvantage of storing emails on a server is that it lacks security features such as 2 factor authentication or encryption for storing sensitive data like credit card numbers, bank account logins etc. This means your data is not safe on your email account even though you might have set up a password for your email account since your mailbox stores everything unencrypted in plain text which makes it easy for hackers to steal your data if they gain access to your mailbox.

Another feature of Microsoft Exchange is its ability to store OST files on different computers connected on an active directory domain which allows us to sync our calendars events between different computers by setting up a new calendar event in one computer then copying it to other computers where it will be automatically added as a new calendar event without even opening Outlook at all. However, this feature can also cause some disadvantages such as:
