Currently we are doing a live copy of all the mail data on our primary SmarterMail MX01 system. This migration is currently copying all data to a new high-performance RAID system. This new RAID system backed by a larger disk array size (6x the size of the current system), higher performance SAS drives and twice the amount of cache.
Our current system in use today is a very strong solution, but with the increase and growth we are seeing with our mail system, the RAID subsystem and the drives are no longer able to keep up with the demand of IMAP, ActiveSync, EWS, and the SmarterMail web interface with large mailboxes.
We are planning to have this completed by this weekend so that we may switch the server’s components. Once we’ve confirmed the data migration has completed we will announce the scheduled outage.
