      This white paper provides an example of how to design, test, and validate an Exchange 2010 solution for customer environments with 500 mailboxes or less deployed on Dell server and storage solutions. One of the key challenges with designing smaller Exchange 2010 environments is being able to provide large mailboxes that are highly available at a reasonable price point. Another key challenge is examining the server and storage options available and making the right hardware choices that provide the best value over the anticipated life of the solution. The step-by-step methodology in this document walks through the important design decision points that help address key challenges while ensuring that core business requirements are met. After we have determined the optimal solution for this customer, the solution undergoes a standard validation process to ensure that it holds up under simulated production workloads for normal operating, maintenance, and failure scenarios.
