I work for a huge organization which has many departments. I wish to plan the database according to the departments. What would be the optimal way to plan for it?
eg. if I have 10,000 users from 5 departments (each user with 150mb allocation)
1) Should I group them into 5 database with 2000 users' mailbox each or
2) 10 database with 1000 users?
How about a case of 5000 users with 1 GB allocation?
What would be the relationship (in terms of logs, access time and recovery) between the number databases and its' users
Is there a guideline so that we can optimally plan for the distribution of mailboxes in the database, so that DAG performance level is well balanced and LUN storage design nicely craft out.
PS: what is the max number of users I can sequeeze into one database? Is it 10 GB?
Many thanks in advance!
