Hardware requirements for Exchange server 2007 UM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    I want to know the hardware requirements for installing an exchange server 2007 unified messaging for about 100-150 users.

    I read the minimum hardware requirements presented by Microsoft, but of course these are the "minimum" requirements and not the recommended ones.

    SO i wonder if a quad-core AMD Opteron processor with 2*2 GB of memory and Raid 5 hard disk, each with 1 TB of space is really required or is it too much ?

    Maybe we can reduce the 1 TB space for each mirror hard disk in the Raid 5 to let's say 250 GB each...will it still be feasible and recommended since the hard disks are the most expensive parts in the server?

    Thanks a lot
