Factors of mailboxes, daily use, and compliance requirements are used to plan the configuration of mailbox databases to determine Exchange Server hard disk needs.
- [Instructor] We finished the previous video…by determining how much space one user's mailbox will need…in the database.…And now I've added in the 500.…That was the forecast maximum number of users.…And if we multiply the number of users,…times the mailbox size,…we can see that the mail portion of our database…is going to use just over three terabytes worth of space.…But that's not all the space that we need to account for.…We're also going to need drive space for content indexing…and for the log files.…
Now the content index for a database…is about 20% of the size of the database itself.…And Microsoft Exchange is intended to work…with large organizations…and handle more than one database per volume when needed.…So there's content indexing that has to be done…at the hard drive volume level, as well.…And that's going to be 20% of the average database size…times one more than the number of databases…that you're storing on that volume.…
And you'll also note that I accounted for 5%…of the hard drive space to be free space.…
