Task 2: Exchange server
The e-mail service is increasingly essential for organizations and their employees. As such, it needs constant monitoring to resolve any performance issues and to sustain an adequate level of service.
To cope with the increase of traffic as well as the dimension of organizations, several architectures have been evolving, such as cluster computing, promising new paradigms of service delivery, which can possibility solve many current problems such as scalability, increased storage and processing capacity, greater rationalization of resources, cost reduction, and increase in performance.
However, it is necessary to check whether they are suitable to receive e-mail servers, and as such the purpose of this case study will concentrate on evaluating the performance of e-mail servers, in different hosting architectures. Beyond computing platforms, is also analyze different server applications. They will be analyzed to determine which combinations of computer platforms and applications obtained better performances for the SMTP, POP3 and IMAP services.
Task 2a. Exchange server
Rationale for selecting the system·
Description of the selected system·
o High-Availability (HA) Clusters
o Load-Balancing Clusters
o E-Mail Service
o Mail Storage Format
o Critically identify and analyze how the organization to manage the risk factors associated with implementing the email system
o Provide a detailed recommendation on how to minimize the risk factors
o Critical self-evaluation of the process
