Today, the majority of Exchange Servers in production are Exchange 2003 servers. If you currently support an Exchange 2003 infrastructure, you may be considering a move to Exchange Server 2007. But if it is unrealistic for your organization to migrate to Exchange 2007 in the near future, you will want to do what you can to optimize your existing environment.
A growing concern is that many Exchange 2003 servers in production are 3-4 years old. While poorly configured servers can bring messaging to its knees, even rock solid servers will fail over time if they are not properly maintained.
In this first session, Luckett will look at how you can identify performance bottlenecks and eliminate them by configuring servers with the appropriate resources. He will also review the native Microsoft tools that allow you to tune your servers’ performance and troubleshoot mail flow problems in Exchange 2003.
While Exchange Server 2007 does not yet have the install base of its predecessor, it has growing momentum especially with the release of Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1. Building rock solid Exchange 2007 servers is the foundation to a reliable Exchange Server 2007 infrastructure.
In the second session, Luckett will examine how you can configure servers with the optimal resources for the roles they are being used for. He’ll take a closer look at the tools and resources that can help you properly size servers and storage for your specific needs. Since the Active Directory environment that a server resides in has a significant impact on Exchange 2007 performance, he will also look at how Active Directory services can be optimized for Exchange 2007. And he will once again look at the native Microsoft tools that allow you to tune your servers’ performance and troubleshoot mail flow problems, this time in Exchange 2007.
Exchange Server 2007 was released in December of 2006, followed by the Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 release in December of 2007. Even if your organization has already made the transition to 2007, you will want to start preparing for the significant changes in the new version of Windows Server 2008.
In the final session, see how changes, such as disk storage, IPv6, Active Directory and other performance enhancements, will impact your choice of server hardware and data storage technologies moving forward. Luckett will explore what can be done to prepare existing environments for Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 together. And he will close the seminar with a look into the crystal ball to see what we can expect in future releases of Exchange Server.
