Email

Email systems such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes typically provide email, calendar, tasks, etc. It is common to charge by the mailbox per month.

Deployment variations tend to come down to degrees of load by capacity and number of users, which can be easily determined via MiTrend sizing analysis.

MS Exchange workloads act like traditional transactional workloads and require a combination of low latency in addition to low $/GB and $/IOPS.
