We encourage you all to join this meeting as it will be useful to anyone who looks after Exchange Servers of whatever variety – even if you’re not currently using Exchange 2010.
In the last couple of weeks I’ve been putting together a couple of presentations for the Dimension Data Next Generation Messaging launch which is focussed on moving people on from Exchange 2003.
The webcasts will be online soon and when they are I will put up a link.
However, in the mean time here are some of the resources I used whilst preparing the deck/session on Exchange 2010 Storage Improvements.
The biggest thanks, help came from Matt Gossage and his presentation from TechED US 2009. Matt is the Product Manager responsible for storage at Microsoft and did a great job explaining things!
Obviously also inspired by that presentation was Mahmoud Magdy who works for Enow Consulting. He put together a three article series on Exchange 2010 storage here:
On top of the above there are clearly numerous resources some of the most useful were:
Mailbox Server Storage Design:
The Exchange 2010 Large Mailbox Vision Whitepaper
Dude, Where’s my single instance?
All in all hopefully that is a useful list and that you might also find my deck below useful.
