Summary note
This book describes storage configuration and measurement to enable Windows administrators to make the best use of storage devices in a Microsoft Exchange server environment and Windows Server 2003 (formerly called .NET). After describing basic storage performance concepts, Bijaoui, a leading expert in Exchange scalability, gives a pragmatic approach to storage configuration and tuning. He also covers leveraging of storage components, whether these are local disks or part of more complex networked storage infrastructures.·Gives the reader a clear and simple view of storage performance
