A Framework for Success
- Agile Consolidated architecture is for organizations pursuing a data center consolidation strategy and for those that want to utilize virtualization, to put as many users on a single server as possible.
- Simple Distributed architecture costs less than the previous approach. It’s best for organizations that choose to dedicate system resources to their email/messaging needs and want the highest availability to account for any possible disaster. This infrastructure distributes the Exchange workload across clustered "bricks" of servers and storage — often without requiring external storage, even for large organizations.
- Small and Branch Office architecture is a simple model for allowing users to deploy internal storage and scale easily for new users without adding external storage.
From these three models, Dell recommends configurations that can speed deployment and reduce or even eliminate problems that can arise with untested configurations.
