Hi all,

I need to install Exchange Server 2010 with this scenario:
1- Three roles (Hub - CAS - Mailbox) installed in two servers only..
2- Mailbox Storage saved in the SAN storage with 10 TB free....
3- No need for Edge servers....
4- have 5000 mailboxes.
5- AD installed in windows server 2003.

I need to Determine the Hardware Requirements for these two servers,

Any suggestion.......


Thx,

This is the most critical part of planning an Exchange deployment because you do not want to under-spec your servers. You can start by using the Exchange storage calculator:

The CAS and HUB roles do not require large amounts of storage so you need to plan  for network performance, Memory and CPU.
