  • Advise on Exchange 2007 150 users


    Sorry if this topic has already been covered, I couldn't find it with common search terms.

    My company is preparing to begin moving email to an exchange server running on windows server 2003 ent. ed. , from an old postfix server.

    We have around 150 users, and email traffic is pretty heavy.

    I was wondering if anyone with a similar environment could relate thier specs for exchange, ie. disk space used, and free space to grow into, etc.

    Thanks in advance for all input and advice.

    There is no single answer for this.
    I have deployed many servers for that number of users and the specification has varied widely.

    I can only suggest that you start with the Exchange storage calculator.

    And then go from there.

    Certainly I wouldn't be looking at multiple servers on that kind of load. Good fast storage, multiple arrays will be all that you need.
