On the one year anniversary of "Infrastructure To Applications" (I2A), HP and Microsoft disclosed the HP E5000 Messaging System for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, the E5000 Messaging System is now available to customers, announced Julia White.
The E5000 is a solution which incorporates everything required to run Exchange Server 2010. One of the strongest selling points of the E5000, in its makers' view, is the fact that users will be able to take advantage of 1GB or 2.5GB mailboxes out of the box.
The solution has been jointly engineered by both companies, and includes (in a single piece of hardware) the following:
- Two blade servers
- Direct attached storage disks
- Redundant networking and power
- Pre-loaded and preconfigured Windows Server 2008 R2 and Exchange Server 2010 SP1
- HP's 3 year, 24x7 hardware and software support
"The all-in-one solution ships pre-configured and optimized for Exchange Server 2010 using best practice architecture from both HP and Microsoft. We've also included specially developed quick deployment tools preloaded on the E5000," White revealed.
The promise from Microsoft and HP is that customers will be able to plan and deploy Exchange Server 2010 within just a few hours.
