Executive Summary

Texas Christian University (TCU) is a private, coeducational school in Fort Worth, Texas. Until recently, TCU relied heavily on Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 for e-mail, which it used to facilitate communication and collaboration among students and faculty. Due to student population growth and longer data retention policies, TCU had reached the limits of its e-mail storage system. Also, users were struggling with the relatively small mailbox sizes available to them. TCU decided to upgrade to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and to convert to native clustering. It also implemented highly virtualized 3PAR Utility Storage to boost disk capacity utilization. As a result, TCU reduced performance issues, increased mailbox size, implemented a clustered continuous replication solution, and provided a platform for continued growth.
