Exchange 2007 video review – 64-bit technology

by ron on April 18, 2007

Exchange 2007 - part 6 - 64bit techNew servers have been built with 64-bit capabilities for at least one year, yet we rarely see servers built with the 64-bit version of Windows Server.

Part of the reason for this is that there were never clear benefits of going down the 64-bit road. The performance improvements were marginal, yet we would have to also deal with potential application compatibility and driver compatibility issues.

It may come as a bit of shock that Exchange 2007 requires a 64-bit installation. A 32-bit production installation is not supported by Microsoft.

Once you see the clear benefits of running Exchange 2007 under a 64-bit environment, you will very likely change your mind regarding the whole 64-bit dilemma.

In this next video review, I’ll walk you through:

  • the difference between 32-bit and 64-technology
  • operating system and application limits
  • disk input/output reduction by implementing 64-bit tech
  • cache and storage benefits

I will also walk you through another new feature called Outlook AutoDiscovery, which I managed to squeeze onto this video as well.

This next video review of the benefits of 64-bit technology lasts for almost 11 minutes.
