The IBM System Storage DS3950 proved more than capable of handling the high IOPs generated by this ESRP configuration. Highly flexible, the DS3950 and EXP395's can scale horizontally and vertically as demanded by the application specific I/O needs, offering exceptional headroom for future Exchange Server 2007 growth. This paper is developed by storage solution providers, and reviewed by the Microsoft Exchange Product team. The test results and data presented in this paper are based on the ESRP test framework v2.1. Customers should not quote the data directly for their pre-deployment verification. It is still necessary to go through the requisite exercises to validate the storage design for each specific customer environment.
