Memory and CPU requirements for Exch 2010 DAG
Posted on 2014-02-18
I just wanted to put this out there and see what kind of setup I would need, approx., for memory and CPU..
There will be 2 Mailbox servers in a DAG and 2 CAS servers. (EXCH 2010 Enterprise)
There will be about 5500 users with their database limits set to 2GB. They have a very high amount of email coming in each day. There will be about 80 databases which will be setup between the 2 servers in the DAG and none of them will go any larger than 200GB.
So I was just wondering the best setup for CPU, which I think I will go with 4 cpu's on each mailbox server, and how much memory for this to work well?
I tried the exchange calculator but I cant seem to get it to give me any info. I guess I maybe doing that wrong.
