You have been tasked with creating a vSphere 6.x data center design for an organization. The organization is looking to virtualize their physical email application.
The company has provided a list of requirements that must be included in the design:
E-mail database is replicated between two servers at a logical level, with no shared disk configurations.
E-mail databases meet corporate criteria for LUN provisioning, and must reside directly on storage array.
Operating system disks do not meet corporate requirements for LUN provisioning, and per policy should not share the same VMFS storage location for
Internal users currently point to three Client Access Servers for load balancing.
External users currently point to three Web Client Access Servers for load balancing.
Customer requires discrete hardware to provide security between internal servers and externally available servers, as well as between externally available servers, and client connections from offsite.
Create a solution that shows the service dependencies required for virtualizing the email application, including:
All required storage for Mail DB VM(s) only
All required network and security connection(s)
All required virtual machine(s)
All required user(s)
Place all items in required container(s). Connect VMFS datastore(s) to required virtual machine(s). Place disk(s) over the required storage type(s). Connect firewall
(s) to container(s).
