We are currently looking to migrate our existing e-mail solution to Zimbra (ZCS Network Edition) and I would like to validate our hardware sizing for a small deployment (25-50 mailboxes):
- Dell PowerEdge R200
- Intel Xeon Quad-Core X3360 @ 2.83Ghz
- 8 GB RAM
- Adaptec 6405 (with flash module in "write-back")
- 2 x Western Digital RE4 SATA3 1TB 64MB Cache RAID 1
Do you think the performance should be adequate with this kind of setup?
I've read in other threads that Zimbra is really I/O intensive?
