Posted on 2014-01-15
I Have i client who need ae a lotvsetup Exchange 2013 with HA and DAG.
2 physical machines (Server x3550 M4) (!at the same room)!!!!
1 Storage V3700 with 12 Disk 10K 600GB each.
2 licences for windows SVRstd SNGL
2 licences for exchange 2013 SvrStd
The current database of my client via Kerio is almost 800GB.
I have a lot of questions for that project.
We need to setup a DC in Virtual Enviroment
Also setup LUNS in Vmware & install exchange 2013 with HA & DAG.
What is the best scenario for ? 1 Big Database or we can separate them at 2.
Also what about retention & archive operations ?
Is Better to use 2 online databases and 2 passive crossed at each server.
What is the best setup for storage ? 1 raid 10 or 1 raid 10 for main databases and 1 raid 5 for archive databases.
What is the best suitable scenario for the above ..?
