If you look at older versions of Exchange like Exchange 2003, that was purely for organizational use that is technically On-Premises flavor of Exchange and similarly, Exchange 2007 too. But, with MachPanel each version of Exchange can be fully segregated in order to exploit advantages of multi-tenancy. Furthermore, the release of Exchange 2010 which was once again aimed at organizational use i.e On-Premises can be fully used as multi-tenant flavor of Exchange via MachPanel. So, what this mean to you; if you are using Exchange 2010 and you need to manage it with a lot comfort via user friendly interface you need to have a control panel in place either you have deployed Exchange On-Premises or seeking multi-tenancy within organizational deployment.
Later on, the release of Exchange 2010 SP1 made the life of hosters a lot easier who sell Hosted Exchange because Microsoft shipped it with default multi-tenancy feature via Hosting Switch or Hosting Mode. The enhancements shipped in SP1, may require you to change and manage a lot of aspect if you are selling hosted Exchange or on-premises flavor. However, with MachPanel you would have nothing to do except making clicks in order to manage and control. MachPanel, not only provisions Exchange 2010 On-Premises but with Hosting Mode enabled or using Hosting Switch with complete support of multi-tenancy and new features introduced by Exchange 2010 SP1 and allows you to enjoy extensive flexibility, reliability, management, compliance and security.
