This is an update for all of you that attended last weeks Gulf Coast Partner Technight presented by Rene Alamo and James Cuomo. Conversation about the availability of 32bit E12 had many speculations so let me clear up a few details. Exchange 12 (codename E12) will be 64bit only. Longhorn Server will not have full functionality on current 64bit motherboards. Some functionality will require hardware support on-board which is currently not available. Exchange 12 (codename E12) will have a 32bit release point for testing/evaluation purposes, it will NOT be a supported platform in the production environment. SBS Cougar (or 2007) will be a 64bit only platform. So there you go, that is all the clarity I can provide at this point.
Whats on Vlad’s Mind?
