    Lightbulb Exchange 2012 Database Store Device ??

    Hi,

    I'm testing my first Exchange 2013 Server.

    Can I get your opinion please on where I should store the mail database (s) for 100 users:

    Hardware is as follows:

    Exchange Server is a VM

    We have:

    300Gb storage available on the VM Host
    or
    12tb File server (Not SAN, standard server, 4 port ethernet)
    or
    16tb NAS (2 port ethernet)


    Server will be used for internal and external mail


    Where is the best place for me to store the database for the best results ???

    All comments welcome, thank you.

    Why not just use local storage, for a real answer you have to make sure the disks can handle the IOPS using Jetstress etc...loading profile and the rest of it.

    For 100 users, I'd be looking into a DAG? Thought about HA/FT or jst performance?>

    Local storage is what Im looking at TBH. I do need to build in fault tolerance but haven't got the cash for it.
