Transcript of "Exchange 2010 High Availability And Storage"

  1. 1. Exchange 2010 High Availability<br />Harold Wong<br />IT Pro Evangelist<br />blogs.technet.com/haroldwong<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Exchange 2010 High Availability Fundamentals<br />End-to-End Availability Improvements<br />High Availability Fundamentals<br />High Availability Design Examples<br />Storage Improvements<br />
  3. 3. E-Mail Trends<br /><ul><li>The average corporate user can expect to send and receive about 156 messages a day, and this number is expected to grow to about 233 messages a day by 2012. An increase of 33% over the four-year period. (Radicati, 2008)</li></ul>Messages Sent/Received Per User/Day<br />“If e-mail stops, business stops”<br /><ul><li>Business users report that they currently spend 19% of their work day, or close to 2 hours/day on email. (Radicati, 2007)</li></ul>“The company runs on e-mail”<br />

  21. 21. Exchange 2010 HA FundamentalsDatabase Availability Group (DAG)<br />Group of up to 16 servers<br />Wraps a Windows® Failover Cluster<br />Defines the boundary of replication and failover/switchover<br />Mailbox Servers ….<br />Host the active and passive copies of multiple mailbox databases<br />Support up to 100 databases per server<br />
  22. 22. Mailbox Database<br />Unit of Failover/Switchover<br />30 second Database Failover/Switchover<br />Database names are unique across an forest<br />Mailbox Database Copy<br />A database has one active copy in a DAG <br />A server may not host more than one copy of a given database<br />Replication of copies using Log Shipping<br />System tracks health of each copy<br />Exchange 2010 HA FundamentalsMailbox Databases and Copies<br />
  23. 23. High Availability’s Brain<br />Manages which database copies should be active and passive<br />Source of definitive information on where a database is active and mounted<br />Active Directory is primary source for configuration information<br />Active Manager is primary source for changeable state information such as active and mounted<br />A process that runs on every server in DAG<br />Exchange 2010 HA FundamentalsActive Manager<br />Active <br />Manager<br />

  25. 25. Simplified ManagementReduces cost and complexity of management<br />HA Administration within Exchange<br />Recovery uses the same simple operation for a wide range of failures<br />Simplified activation of Exchange services in a standby datacenter<br />
  26. 26. High Availability Management<br />demo <br />
  27. 27. Use a VSS backup solution<br />Backup from any copy of the database/logs<br />Always choose passive (or active) copy<br />Backup an entire server <br />Designate a dedicated backup server for a given database <br />Restore from any of these backups:<br />Database Availability Group<br />Mailbox Server 3<br />Mailbox Server 1<br />Mailbox Server 2<br />DB1<br />DB1<br />DB1<br />VSS requestor<br />DB2<br />DB2<br />DB2<br />DB3<br />DB3<br />DB3<br />Exchange Server 2010 Backups<br />

Automatic protection against loss of queued e-mails due to hardware failure<br />Simplifies hub and edge transport server upgrades and maintenance<br />Improved Transport Resiliency<br />X<br />Mailbox <br />Server <br />EdgeTransport<br />Servers keep “shadow copies” of items until they are delivered to the next hop<br />Edge Transport<br />HubTransport <br />
  35. 35. Online Move MailboxLimit user disruption during mailbox moves and maintenance<br />Users remain online while their mailboxes are moved between servers<br />Sending messages<br />Receiving messages<br />Accessing entire mailbox<br />Administrators can perform migration and maintenance during regular hours<br />Also can be used to migrate users from on-premise server to Exchange Online<br />E-Mail Client<br />Client Access Server<br />Exchange 2010 & Exchange 2007 SP2 Online<br />Exchange 2003 Offline <br />Mailbox Server 1<br />Mailbox Server 2<br />

Hardware Load Balancer<br />Mailbox servers in a DAG can host other Exchange server roles<br />CAS/HUB/MAILBOX 2<br />CAS/HUB/MAILBOX 1<br />DB1<br />DB1<br />2 server configurations, should always use RAID<br />DB2<br />DB2<br />DB2<br />DB3<br />DB3<br />High Availability Design ExampleBranch office or smaller deployment<br />
  37. 37. High Availability for Other Server Roles<br /><ul><li>Hardware load balancer (recommended) or Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB) </li></ul>Client Access<br /><ul><li>No special configuration required (load balancing and failover is automatic)</li></ul>Hub Transport<br />Edge Transport<br /><ul><li>Use DNS round robin, multiple MX records
  38. 38. Configure IP gateway to point to more than one UM server</li></ul>Unified Messaging<br />
