Standard and Enterprise are two types of Exchange Server 2010 editions. Hosted by Microsoft, Exchange Server 2010 is a messaging platform. The only difference between the two editions is how many databases they can hold. The database can be a mailbox or any type of public folder.
The Standard edition can hold 5, while the Enterprise can hold much more at 100 databases. This simple difference makes choosing an edition easier.
