Agreed! You're right about using approved drivers and well written software!
Also, writing automatic pruning code for log files, archived transactions, etc... is always a good measure.

I write several services for a global mail/collaboration product. One of our marketing folks was telling a customer that they should restart their services every so often. So, I took an old machine of mine, installed our product on a Windows Server 2008 VM on it. Used another Hyper-V machine and simulated a 1000 ActiveSync, SMTP and IMAP client botnet via several dozen Hyper-V Windows XP VMs, running JavaScript and PowerShell. ( I use JavaScript to test my ActiveSync service regularly). I turned it all loose and let it run for 30 days.

My ActiveSync and all other services were still running as flat as they were by the time the 1000th client connected.

When the marketing guy saw this, he was astounded, and asked what kind of activity had been occurring.

Some of the stats that I recall from that demo...
Almost 200,000 original emails sent (averaging 30% with attachments of various sizes).
Around 50,000+ Replies
Around 30,000+ Forwards
over 650,000 deliveries to recipients (list bifurcation)
around 250,000 or so items moved between folders.
around 300,000 ItemOperations Fetch calls
1/4 million or so Deletes
1.5 millions Global Address List searches

In general, the numbers were huge compared to what most of our SMB market customers ever see. My ActiveSync testing script behavea similar to the client type they are to impersonate ie., Androids, iOS (UGH!), Windows Phones, Outlook, etc...

After that, he was all excited about showing customers five 9's Smile | :) I guess he thought we didn't have it in us! LOL!
