Teched day two

Long day, lots of sessions, some sessions were good, some a little dissappointing. Got a bit annonyed with the Exchange Virtualisation Best Practices as the speaker Scott Schnoll who refused to mention any hypervisor other than hyper-v, the large white elephant in the corner just got bigger and bigger throughout the session. No support for Live Migratio (vmotion) for VM’s participanting in a DAG, but then he claims no support for HA, mmm right….

Also Exchange Storage and JBOD,  could Microsoft go on and on more about something people simply wont implement. Sure I understand EXCH2010 is better on disks and DAGs (not the sheep ones), mean you have protection at the application layer but I don’t know a single Server vendor who ships a product that supports JBOD!!

So the real answer is no need to separate logs and db’s, use RAID 5 on tier 2 storage (SATA) and implement DAG’s.
