Exchange 2010 & Windows Server 2008 Version Comparison
Posted on 2011-02-26
I am planning on updating my Server Room.
I have 25 users in a single Domain with 2 Servers Running.
Server 1: will be the Primary Domain Controller with Windows Server 2008 and Exchange 2010
Server 2: will be the Secondary Domain Controller with Windows Server 2008
Some Features of Exchange 2010 are: Backup, Voice Mail, Archiving etc.(Q2)
In standard edition you have up to 5 databases of 16TB.(Q3)
Q1: Which version of Windows 2008 is suggested for Server 1, Server 2 and Why?(Kindly advice using version comparison)
Q2: Which features are included only in Enterprise version of Exchange? (a small explanation of them would be appreciated)
Q3: What is included on each database of Microsoft Exchange 2010 (mailboxes, voicemails, public folders and Achieved mails or part of them?)
Q4: What is DAG - Database Availability Group in simple words?
Q5: For using the Exchange Archiving option do I need Outlook 2010 or Office 2010 Pro for each client? Will it work with Outlook 2007 version?
Q6: Do I have the ability to use Exchange 2010 Standard with Enterprise CALS? If so, how will i be benefited instead of using the Standard CALS?
p.s. I know that I have asked many questions but let’s make this post a feature reference for every user of the community ;-)
