I hope you will be clustering those storage arrays since email is such a vital service for any organization. What are your current choices? I don't think there would be any major issues as long as you plan you current and long term capacity needs. Let us know what are your plans at the moment.

Hi all.

Currently I am administering a mail cluster in which messages are
stored on software RAID shared with NFS. There are several NFS
servers, every one of them exports a part of all mail files for a
specific frontend with postfix.

We are thinking about replacing these storage hosts with one solution,
maybe a storage array with appropriate disk space and I/O capacity.
What are pros and cons of that solution? Do storage arrays have
appropriate I/O capacity (X*software RAID)? Does it scale good? Does
storage capacity also scale good in those solutions?
