Hyperconverged solutions are disrupting traditional enterprise storage architectures. Enterprises, ranging from SMB, SME and large enterprises, are beginning to deploy a hyperconverged, scale-out model for their next generation datacenter. The hardware building blocks are industry standard rack mount servers with internal drive bays that can be populated with direct attached disk drives and SSDs.

This whitepaper describes a simplified and cost-effective way of deploying Microsoft Exchange solution in a mid-range IT organization. It is intended to assist IT decision makers in deploying a simplified and cost-effective Microsoft Exchange solution, by implementing a hyper-converged storage solution that showcases improved application level performance achieved by running Maxta Hyperconvergence Software on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 V3 platform with Intel® Data Center PCIe (NVMe) SSDs, and the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter.
