The importance of e-mail as a business-critical application has increased the impact of e-mail infrastructure on your organization’s bottom line. Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010 offers a range of enhancements designed to advance user productivity and simplify e-mail manageability for enterprise customers. As a leading partner of Microsoft, Dell™ is committed to delivering value added solutions for Microsoft Exchange 2010.
Exchange 2010 offers numerous enhancements regarding mailbox size, personal archives, simpler recovery, and high-availability management. These enhancements can result in increased storage capacity requirements, and Dell EqualLogic™ PS Series virtualized iSCSI SANs can ease those demands. Cost savings come from the shared-resource architecture and improved storage efficiency, as well as simplified storage management that saves time and effort. In addition, enhanced e-mail protection ensures that your e-mail data remains available.
- Improved storage efficiency — thin-provisioned volumes for Exchange databases reduce over-provisioning while space-efficient snapshots and offloaded backup processing minimize data-protection overhead
- Simplified storage management — automated networking and capacity optimization, along with Microsoft Windows integration, combine with standardized iSCSI networking to reduce administration
- Enhanced e-mail protection — Auto-Snapshot Manager/Microsoft Edition ships with every array, enabling application-consistent snapshots, replicas and clones for enhanced RTO/RPO
- Shared resource architecture — virtualized storage provides for high levels of resource utilization and standardized approaches to high availability that can be leveraged across critical applications
