Exchange 2010 with Hyper-V
Posted on 2010-11-22
I would like to know all the possiblities for running exchange 2010 in an virtualized environment.
Scenario: HP 460C blades -2 No:s with 2 Processor with 40GB RAM / HP EVA Storage with 3TB/Users 750 on 3 Stoarge Groups (Currently on exchange 2007)
Proposed action: I would like to run hyper-V on the both the Blades with OS cluster for HA with 3 guest OS on each host for the following server Role
1. 2 File Servers with stoarge on SAN on both Hosts
2. 2 Exchange 2010 MB Role with Stoarge on SAN
3. 2 CAS/HUB Exchange Servers
What are the best practises I need to look forward and take care for the fully reduntant/HA & problem free scenarios??. Whether the Live migration will support the snap-shots & Microsoft Backup agent (Data Protection Manager - Agents) etc. Is there are any limitations in the near future for the upgradations / managment etc etc......????
