Simplicity and Efficiency
Within many Microsoft Exchange environments, IT organizations are struggling to successfully address the challenges associated with increasing users and data, cost, and management complexity while being hindered by inflexible infrastructures and siloed environments. Many organizations are turning to virtualization for more efficient, agile, and flexible IT operations.
EMC solutions for Microsoft Exchange and our unified communications reduce the cost and complexity of your messaging environment. They combine best-in-class hardware and software with a complete portfolio of services to help you increase service levels, protect data, simplify deployment and management, and derive the most value from your email information.
In fact, EMC has won the Partner of the Year award 21 times and has achieved 16 gold and silver competencies including many related to Exchange, unified communications, and virtualization.
EMC has developed many EMC Proven Solutions that document best practices for confidently deploying and managing virtualized Microsoft environments including:
- Performance, scalability, and efficiency
- Backup, recovery, and deduplication
- Data protection
Performance, Scalability, and Efficiency
In the planning and design phases of a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 implementation or upgrade, it's important to understand how the application interacts with the storage platform and virtualization technologies. It's also critical to know which practices to follow to avoid problems and achieve the best performance.
From a storage design perspective, the application architecture and user profile characteristics of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 are significantly different from earlier versions of Exchange (2003 and 2007). Microsoft has made significant changes to the Exchange Server 2010 storage schema to accommodate new, high-availability scenarios and larger mailboxes with fewer input/output operations per second (IOPS).
Understanding Exchange Server 2010 I/O and bandwidth characteristics is key to design an efficient storage configuration. Having developed many best practices and Proven Solutions, EMC can help organizations to accelerate Exchange 2010 deployments and migrations.
Backup, Recovery, and Deduplication
EMC backup, recovery, archiving, and deduplication solutions help to centralize and streamline backup and recovery for virtualized Exchange environments. Our solutions support organizations' backup and recovery needs and operational management requirements.
With EMC backup and recovery solutions for Microsoft, you can quickly and easily recover Exchange to any point in time or consolidate Exchange backup and recovery operations by centralizing, streamlining, and automating your data protection.
EMC offers cost-effective archiving and compliance solutions for Exchange for regulatory compliance and automated data movement over tiered storage. Our solutions enable you to safely build an information infrastructure that meets compliance demands, reduces your legal risk, and enables better total cost of ownership (TCO) while accelerating retrieval of historical email.
With EMC solutions for Exchange data protection and business continuity, you can build and deploy a resilient infrastructure for your mission-critical virtualized Exchange environments. Our business continuity solutions help you to address increasing user requirements for higher levels of services, avoid costly outages, and recover from disasters in minutes or hours instead of days.
