This is a pretty cool video done by the Technical Marketing team at Xiotech. 10,000 Exchange users in 3U of space!! No fancy/expensive SSD needed for this !!
250 VDI instances or
10,000 Exchange Users or
750 DVD Quality Video’s or
In 3U of space. Now that’s WICKED FAST !!!
As they say in Minny – “that’s not to shabby !!”
By the way, if by chance 10,000 is just not enough users for you. Don’t worry, add a second ISE and DOUBLE IT TO 20,000. Need 30,000, then add a THIRD ISE. 100,000 users in 10 ISE or 30U of RackSpace. Sniff Sniff….I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way – Check out what others are doing:
