Exchange 2007 (E2K7): Protocols & Storage Design

With Exchange 2007 and the unified messaging coming up big time, I guess more and more IT'ers are reading into this in order to keep up with the new technologies.

Microsoft has put together a ZIP file that holds documents on all Exchange 2007 protocols, which can be downloaded at this link
The documentation is designed to describe each protocol in detail as it is used by the Microsoft Exchange Server system. Each protocol specification documents the technical requirements, limitations, dependencies, and Microsoft-specific protocol behavior.
The documentation also includes a set of companion overview and reference documents that supplement the technical specifications with conceptual background, overviews of inter-protocol relationships and interactions, and technical reference information, such as common data types and error codes.

Also, on Technet, a document has been published that describes best practices how to design storage for various needs: high-availabilty, high capacity, low cost, ...
Certainly very interesting to read: Storage Design
