Silva Summary: Storage is the most critical component of an Exchange back-end server and it’s usually the cause of performance degradation. If your users are complaining about frequent Outlook messages saying that it’s trying to retrieve data from the Exchange Server, that’s probably a storage bottleneck. Good Exchange planning with proper disk sizing can prevent these kind of problems from happening.

Silva Summary: I’m pretty sure that it’s, at least, arguable that you can call it art. I don’t know either if it’s deep enough to be called a science. One thing I can assure you is that sizing an Exchange server can be a complex task and it requires not only the knowledge, but also a dose of sensibility and some previous experience with the Microsoft Server family of products. Although there are some pretty good documents from Microsoft about this subject, I’ll try to condense them all and include the main guidelines in this three-part article.
