"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi RSKel,
A cheaper option would be to put a RAID card in the server and mirror the partition to another hard drive or hard drive array.

Cheers!

Hi Peter, thanks for the comments but we have a raid five partition on the server already. We require a mirror off site.

Take a look at Veritas storage replicator, (but you won't like the price).

DoubleTake is another tool for this, though it's about $2500 per server, you need 2, obviously.

If you're really looking to drop some cash you can always put up a geocluster :-)

Ow, my eye :) Yea, found a solution from NetApp for their "metro" cluster, pretty sweet though if you can afford it.
