In this session, Microsoft MVP and Exchange expert J. Peter Bruzzese will start you off with a clear explanation of Exchange storage architecture for Exchange 2007 and 2010. Then he will walk you through the concept of continuous replication and how it's utilized in Exchange 2007 and 2007 SP1, leading up to the changes in Exchange 2010 and 2010 SP1 with the new Database Availability Group (DAG) method of high availability. In addition, we'll discuss JBOD vs. SAN storage options, the loss of Single Instance Storage (SIS) and the elimination of traditional backup for your Exchange environment.
