The term virtual organization in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server refers to a collection of Exchange services (including, but not limited to, protocols and storage) that operate to emulate a single Exchange virtual server. These services can span multiple physical computers.

A virtual organization is also referred to as virtual server, hosted organization, and multi-machine virtual server (MMVS).

A typical implementation of a virtual organization is the protocol farm or an outsourced e-mail/collaboration service.


A set of virtual server instances and Messaging Database (MDB) instances that communicate with each other and that are in the same logical grouping are said to be in a virtual organization.
