The average person spends more than two hours a day just on e-mail alone. This equates to employees sending and receiving over 200 e-mail messages a day, and this torrid pace will only continue to increase by 10% a year. Emails continue to push data capacity requirements with audio, video, and document attachments. These data-heavy emails mean that the average mailbox can exceed 10 GB in just four years, which means that email growth and management is a important matter to address.
The top two challenges for businesses are email growth and management (Forrester Survey: Feb. 2011). Users continue to expect more from Exchange with technology growth.

Why Microsoft Exchange 2010?
Exchange has drastically been redesigned from the 2003 version. E-mails have increased in size and quantity. Users now want increased access to emails. Since users can no longer use .pst/offline archives they require a bigger quota for their mailboxes. Exchange was optimized for SAN and needed to be redesigned to allow low cost SATA drives.
Exchange 2010 is designed to deliver higher levels of reliability and performance with a lower TCO and wider range of deployment.
Exchange 2010 Enhancements:
- Reduced I/O per second (IOPs) requirement and lower acquisition costs with a choice of direct attached storage (DAS) or lower cost drives in shared storage arrays — Exchange 2010 delivers up to a 70-percent reduction in disk I/O over Exchange 2007. Additional disk types meet the minimum performance required to run Exchange, so organizations can use the new architecture to drive down storage costs.
- Exchange 2003 requires SAN for HA and performance—Exchange 2010 has greater flexibility in storage options with SANs to DAS.
- 25 years of experience and partnership with Microsoft.
- Proven leader in Microsoft Exchange deployments: storage and management software technologies that can address both direct attached storage (DAS) and storage attached network (SAN) deployments for Microsoft Exchange.
- HP can help deploy Microsoft Exchange 2010 in the cloud through HP Exchange Cloud Services.
