"Today Microsoft provided a select group of customers early access to an Alpha version of Office server technologies," the software maker said in a statement. "However, Microsoft is not disclosing information about the timing for a Beta version at this time."

Microsoft has also begun testing for the next version of Exchange, code-named E14 .
