Server hardware spec for Exchange 2010
Posted on 2011-02-25
I am migrating to Exchange 2010 from Exchange 2005 within the next few weeks. We currently have only 40 Exchange mailboxes and although there may be new employees coming on board soon, there will probably not be more than 50 mailboxes over the next 3 years.
The question is, will the server I have chosen be enough to accommodate these mailboxes?
Server is a 3 year old Dell PowerEdge SC1435.
CPU: DUAL CORE OPTERON 2216 (2.4GHZ
SCSI: SAS 5I/R CONTROLLER CARD FOR SATA AND SA
HDD: 2 x 750GB
RAID: Raid 1
I have taken out an extended warranty on it to cover it for the next 3 years.
I intend to install Win2008R2 64bit as the OS
