I have been on the road with the Build ‘06 tour lately and have been back logged in writing blog posts. Luckily I have been reading my off-line RSS feeds – great little gems here and there while waiting for a flight or company while having dinner for one in a hotel restaurant. I came across a great article written up on the Exchange blog talking about future proofing your hardware investments when it comes time to use the 64 bit version of Exchange 12.
The article can be found here – written by Matt Gossage, a Group Manager for the Exchange Customer Experience Solutions team.
If you are considering purchasing new server hardware in the near future (if you plan on using E12 or not) and you have the ability to future proof yourself a bit – why not get a hold of some 64 bit hardware. You know that you are able to put a 32 bit OS on it for now (if you have app compatibility issues) and can reformat and reinstall with a 64 bit OS later on.
I would have to say this post is one of my recommended reading posts for sure!
