Lync Server and Hosting Pack comparison
Lync Server provides the full capabilities across all Lync workloads and IT capabilities and should be the first consideration for Enterprise & Midmarket customers.
The Lync Hosting Pack is based on the multi-tenant architecture of Lync Online and is typically a more economical solution for customers with less than 250 users although it doesn’t support all of the Enterprise Voice & PBX features in Lync Server. These features can be enabled through third-party solutions to provide additional value added services.
