Abstract: This solution utilizes Exchange 2010 Mailbox Resiliency with Database Availability Groups (DAG). The tested design includes 6 DAGs, with 2 database copies (servers) per group. Each server node in the Jetstress simulated DAG would have a mirror configuration and adequate space for the second set of databases. Each database copy has its own isolated storage on separate DS3400 controllers and spindles. The design includes 3 backend DS3400 storage controllers behind the IBM SAN Volume Controller. A total of 6 servers were attached to the SVC for the Jetstress tests.
