High Availability reference architecture for virtualized Exchange

Microsoft Exchange is adding support for virtualized servers, which increases the availability options for many customers. This whiteboard video describes how to implement Microsoft Exchange 2010 with Hyper-V' clustering and virtualization and includes configuration details for an Exchange environment with 6000 users running on HP DL380 servers and HP P4500 iSCSI SANs.


One of the interesting details of this implementation is that the three P4500s used for mailbox storage do not use Network RAID - because Exchange Data Availability Groups (DAGs) are performing data replication between mailbox servers.   A fully detailed description is available for download in a PDF whitepaper online at this link .
