  2. 2. Brochure | HP Simply StoreIT Solutions for Exchange As your business evolves away from limited, Webbased email options, you need to affordably and reliably deliver larger mailboxes to more users. If you’re like most companies, you’ll probably implement an on-premise Microsoft® Exchange deployment. However, few small and midsize businesses (SMBs) have dedicated storage specialists on their IT staffs to deploy this critical messaging infrastructure. With the success of your Exchange deployment hinging on infrastructure and storage planning, what’s your strategy? Support your future growth trajectory Email is the communication heartbeat of most companies today, and SMBs are no exception. Your employees rely on email to support internal and external communications, business collaboration, and other workflows. They expect uninterrupted access to email, whenever and wherever they need it. However, email volume and complexity are on the rise. Because emails contain text as well as presentations, images, and video, it’s not surprising that average message sizes are ballooning as well. And accessing this data on-the-go, from the Web and mobile devices, can result in security vulnerabilities. HP Simply StoreIT Solutions for Exchange can help you overcome the common challenges that SMBs face in deploying, growing, and maintaining Microsoft Exchange environments. You’ll get affordable, proven configurations that are easy to deploy backed by reliable, scalable storage that supports growth in both mailbox number and size. And you’ll gain peace of mind with an Exchange solution that’s both robust and easy to manage and that—supports your future growth trajectory. Navigate to the solution that’s right for you HP Simply StoreIT Solutions for Exchange are based on an underlying maturity model that helps you calculate your future growth trajectory. This model lets you quickly navigate to a solution that meets your needs and helps shed light on potential challenges ahead. It illustrates issues that businesses like yours have faced when entering the next stage of growth—an evolution not necessarily predicated on company revenues or employee headcounts, but one that is linked to your Exchange deployment maturity. Using the maturity model, you can walk through key issues, potential solutions, and decision points. As a result, you can be confident that the storage solution you deploy for Exchange today won’t leave you exposed or faced with costly shifts six months from now. Understanding the maturity model stages The HP Maturity Model for Microsoft Exchange consists of the following stages: Starting out In your new business, it’s important to lay the right groundwork for future growth in a way that’s affordable and easy to deploy today. You are looking to migrate from Web-based email to an Exchange infrastructure for the first time. You require a storage infrastructure that enables you to deliver large mailboxes and scales easily to accommodate more users—all within your budget constraints and existing IT expertise levels. Building momentum You’ve hit growth mode and are adding employees and infrastructure to respond to new opportunities. Now that you’ve successfully migrated to an in-house Exchange solution, you need a storage infrastructure that ensures your email is always available and fully protected. You also need to deploy a second instance of Exchange on-location or at a second site for disaster recovery (DR). Expanding your business As your business grows, you begin to experience enterprise-level challenges including the need to accommodate multiple locations. You need to weigh every infrastructure decision with its impact to the IT staff and its ability to accelerate your profitability and reduce risk. You’re virtualizing your applications under other IT imperatives. So you’ll need storage infrastructure for your Exchange deployment that can meet specific performance requirements when operating in that environment. The management complexity of virtualizing Exchange can often present problems as you work to optimize your storage resources. 2
  3. 3. Brochure | HP Simply StoreIT Solutions for Exchange Figure 1. HP Maturity Model for Microsoft Exchange Where are you now? Where are going? Where do you want to be? IT needs Starting out Building momentum Expanding your business Beyond Typical pain points Typical pain points Typical pain points • Lack of advanced features in current web-based email • Possible transition to newer hardware to accommodate growth • Exchange virtualization as part of an overall IT imperative • Migration to Exchange for the first time • Semi-dedicated IT staff for Exchange • Management complexity of virtualizing Exchange • Limited IT staff and expertise in Exchange • Deployment and integration of another system/storage at a second site • Storage infrastructure meeting the performance requirements of virtualized Exchange • Risk management - robust high availability and email protection • Risk management - email availability, disaster recovery, data loss • Limited budget for delivering simple email solution to more users with large mailboxes Selecting the right storage for your specific stage Starting out: Affordably build a dedicated email infrastructure If you’re like many companies, you may have started out by hosting email in the cloud through a low-cost provider. At some point, this strategy probably became risky because it’s difficult to control the many variables that IT managers require as a company grows. Backup strategy, mailbox recovery risks, mailbox size limitations, and other key IT imperatives often lead to the decision that cloud-based email is no longer the right choice. As you look to deploy Microsoft Exchange for the first time in your existing IT infrastructure, HP can help. We provide Exchange sizing and proven best practices that can help you deploy larger mailboxes and get up and running in no time. HP D-Series Disk Enclosures HP D-Series Disk Enclosures work with Exchange and the world-class HP server line up to give you an affordable price point along with the scalability you need to grow your Exchange deployment in size and number of mailboxes. Building momentum: Support more and larger mailboxes If you have already deployed Exchange, you might want to look into several options for scalable and flexible storage to specifically address challenges that growing companies usually encounter, such as ensuring high availability (HA), streamlining disaster recovery (DR) plans, and meeting more stringent mailbox restore objectives. HP MSA Storage Features built into the HP MSA Storage family deliver the shared storage functionality that is essential to solving these challenges. They also provide an affordable solution that the rest of your computing infrastructure can leverage—extending your storage return on investment (ROI) for Exchange and all of your applications simultaneously. 3
