Unformatted text preview: the Loadgen profile we used for this testing, based on MMB3, to stress the memory and processor
resources of the servers. Those modifications result in the tested workload no longer resembling an Exchange
workload deployed in “real world,” practical scenarios. The testing results, therefore, should not be used as a
guide or recommendation for sizing Exchange server and storage architectures. However, the testing results do
show an accurate picture and comparison of the servers’ overall performance and power capabilities and
limitations. 1 This report does not reflect suggested Microsoft Exchange architecture; the focus of the study was performance. Principled Technologies, Inc.: Virtualized Exchange workload performance comparison of end-to-end
solutions: Dell PowerEdge R710 with Dell EqualLogic storage vs. HP ProLiant GL385 G5 with HP
StorageWorks EVA 4400 2 Test results
Figure 3 shows the total number of virtual machines each solution could handle during testing. For a solution to
earn an acceptable score, all VMs needed a latency of less than 1.3 second...
