The choices that you make as you plan and implement your storage solution affect the costs that are associated with administration and maintenance of your Exchange 2000 environment. This white paper describes how to plan a successful storage strategy for Exchange 2000. You can find out the best way to balance capacity, availability, and performance as you explore the principles of designing an Exchange 2000 storage solution. This white paper compares two common approaches to storage, storage area networks (SANs) and network-attached storage (NAS).
IMPORTANT: This white paper does not provide a procedure for configuring and deploying Exchange 2000 storage solutions, nor does it discuss storage from a clustering perspective. However, you can apply the principles that are outlined in this white paper to a clustered version of Exchange 2000.
