Contingency plan backup solution
Posted on 2006-04-26
We have a contingency plan within our company that syncs files with an external server. However, we recently installed exchange 2003 and are trying to find a way to backup the exchange data on that external server daily so we can get back up and running as soon as possible in the event of a catastrophy.
I know we could setup an exchange cluster but that's not really a solution right now since we can't upgrade both operating systems or install exchange on the backup server. I was thinking of just synching an ntbackup of exchange every day but that would create too much network traffic.
I'm just asking this to see if I can get any ideas. Basically, minimize network traffic and no exchange on backup server.
