Overview: This white paper addresses best practice considerations when deploying Exchange Server 2003 on the HP StorageWorks 8000 Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA8000) storage array. Testing was conducted on the EVA8000 2C12D model with 168 disks (72GB, 15K-rpm drives). When deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, there are a number of factors that must be addressed to ensure a successful deployment and implementation of the application. To provide a high performance Exchange server environment, the initial design and planning phase is critical, and key decisions must be made around the type of server hardware, the amount of required memory, the network infrastructure, and Active Directory design.
