The information discussed in this solution brief highlights the tested performance results and configuration best practices for an Exchange server supporting 700 Exchange users. Testing was performed with the HP StorageWorks 2000i G2 Modular Smart Array using twenty (20) 146 GB 10K rpm SAS disks for Exchange database storage and transaction logs. The testing demonstrated that the storage subsystem was capable of supporting both the IOPS needed to support the 700 Exchange users as well as providing additional headroom. This paper is developed by storage solution providers and reviewed by the Microsoft Exchange Product team. The test results/data presented in this paper are based on the tests introduced in the ESRP test framework.
