Hi to all of you,
according to several articles, It looks like Exchange 2010 is no hardware demanding in terms of disk IO .
I read that even sata disks are acceptable with no raid (http://blogs.technet.com/ucedsg/archive/2009/05/12/exchange-2010-and-high-availability-part-i-dag.aspx)
Could you please tell me if this is true? how did you configured your Exchange servers with DAG in terms of disk partitioning?
My idea is to place one Exchange on a SAN as virtual machine and a second Exchange outside the san hp proliant with 16 gb ram and sas jbod og 4 tera.
we have 350 mailboxes and the maximum mailbox size will be 2Gb.

thank you for your help
