The choice for storage design for Exchange 2007 isn?t quite as straightforward as it used to be for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. Exchange 2003 was very demanding on storage and typically performed best on arrays that supported many numbers of spindles needed for the maximum I/O performance. With Exchange 2007 the performance demand has diminished and multiple copies of the data bring the gap between capacity and performance sizing much closer. In this webcast/paper we will explore the characteristics of SAN and DAS implementations and how to determine which technology makes the most sense for your own Exchange organization.
This webcast/whitepaper uses the SAN-attached HP StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array (HP EVA4400) and the direct-attached HP StorageWorks 60 Modular Smart Array (HP MSA60) to address many technical factors such as:
· Random and sequential performance
· Availability of the disk sub-systems
· Management of the storage environment
