As I’ve discussed in a few previous blog posts, there are numerous reasons that make Exchange 2010 a compelling upgrade for firms running Exchange 2003 or even Exchange 2007. Specifically, most of my clients have determined the general storage efficiency enhancements and high availability and site resiliency improvements of the Database Availability Group (DAG) to be so compelling as to warrant aggressive timelines for an upgrade. As a result, since the beginning of 2010, I’ve been involved in over 12 separate Exchange 2010 projects through August 2010, from architecture consulting and design through deployment and transition. While Exchange 2010 is a stable and robust platform, there are a few quirks or subtleties that I wanted to share for those that are planning or beginning an upgrade.
A list of topics that I plan to cover can be found below and links will be created to each post as it is released. In addition, as I uncover additional topics to discuss, I’ll add to this list going forward. Please check back often!
I hope you find this topics useful as you plan for or begin your own upgrades!
