Dear all,

My customer environments have 4000 users.

Their in the mid of deciding to run virtualization (VMware) or physical for Exchange 2007. Which 1 of below will be better option

1. Mailbox1 [2000 users], Mailbox2[2000 users], Cas, HT. All 4 Vms are using DRS and vMotion for HA

2. Mailbox1 [4000 users] Active, Mailbox2[4000 users] Passive, CAS/HT, CAS/HT. All 4 Vms have DRS and vMotion disabled. CCR is used for mailbox and NLB is used for CAS/HT

Hi

Before answering anything above i want you to read through the link below regarding requirements for deploying virtualised environment

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc794548(EXCHG.80).aspx

Make sure you follow it so you are supported

There are also links for planning the memory, storage

Make sure you plan it well, think about it as a traditional server, it needs the resources regardless if it's a physical machine or virtual

Also, for planning storage you can use Mailbox storage calculator
