Abstract: This paper outlines an IBM Storwize V5000 test for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, based on the Microsoft Exchange Solution Reviewed Program (ESRP) – Storage program. The ESRP program was developed by Microsoft to provide a common storage testing framework for vendors to provide information on its storage performance for the Microsoft Exchange Server software.
This test demonstrates database and log storage performance for the stated mailbox count and profile only. It does not take into account all of the space requirements and variables in a production environment. For complete information about Microsoft Exchange sizing, refer to the Microsoft Exchange Storage Calculator and guidance.
