Oracle Communications Messaging Server: Managing Storage Requirements

Oracle Communications Messaging Server and Tiered Storage

For those of you who missed this great information that we published over a year ago, I highly recommend that you have a look: Messaging Server and Tiered Storage Overview. Even if you were aware of this content, it's worth reviewing again, not only for a recap of how the Messaging Server message store operates, but to understand store performance characteristics, and how to plan for and allocate store partitions across your storage devices. Whether you are an ISP or enterprise, this content is a must read.

Communications Suite: Cutting Your Storage Costs

Just published: a white paper on designing tiered storage with Messaging Server, with the eye on cutting storage costs. Abstract:

Service providers face unrelenting pressure to increase storage for user mailboxes. This paper explains how using production products, such as Sun Communications Suite software, the Solaris ZFS file system, and a Sun Storage array, can cut storage costs by half, while performance (measured by messages per second) can be increased by more than 50 percent in environments with millions of users. Extensive load testing has shown that this single-rack solution provides a cost-effective message store for two million users. It is easily replicated and highly modular.
