We have been hosting KMS for several years now. Recently we have found the sweet spot in pricing and have been having a great deal of success in selling it to our clients. With this, we have now come to a crossroads in our implementation. We have hit the first of our warnings in regard to available space. We haven't really done a great job in establishing individual mailbox limits, so we need to work on that, but other than that the growth is simply due to success in selling.

With this situation I now have to create a larger holding area for the mail store and make the move two different times because we are going to reuse the currently used drives for the permanent solution. My concern is both the success of copying the mail store and in having as many users as we do that use KOC and ActiveSync devices. I read that the number of concurrent connections for a single server cannot exceed some number less than 400 if you use the KOC. My question about this is how do I expand at this point? Do I spin up a second KMS server and keep my user limit around 250 per server, or is there a way to get past the MAPI connection limit? Sorry this was so wordy. Appreciate your thoughts.

You could virtualize the entire thing with good head-end servers and a super fast SAN backend. With replication of course.

Curious where you read that 400 limit at, have never seen anything like that in all the manuals and material we have seen from Kerio.
