  • Exchange 2010 Infrastructure

    Can anyone share their Exchange 2010 architure with me. I am looking for just the 100k foot view of a roughly 17,000 mailbox environment. I know there are a lot of different storage options and availability designes.. I am looking for a Highly Available probably 2 node cluster design.. Management doesn't think we can afford the 3 node no backup design but I would like to push for it.. backups are a pain...

    Our current Exchange 2007 environment is all physical, no virtual.

    3 Mailbox servers (6 servers) setup in a CCR cluster with a dedicated storage SAN on each side
    2 dedicated hub servers
    2 dedicated cas servers (1 also has a hub role)
    1 stand alone mailbox server for odd little tasks

    Any shared topologies and expieriences are appreciated.

    All in one site or distributed? If so, how?
    Exchange 2010 has replaced clustering with the far more effective DAG

      We have it broken into two physical sites.

      Site A
      Active Node of the three Mailbox clusters
      One Hub
      One Cas

      Site B
      Passive Node of the three mailbox clusters
      One Hub
      One Cas
      One stand alone mailbox server
