Exchange clustering across Multiple sites

Exchange server 2003 SP2 running on Windows server 2003 SP1 in a front-end/Back-end Environment.

We are going to be adding a second facility and will want to setup the exchange environment so that if either facility where to "go down" the other facility could support all users. The site will have different IP addresses, and will be physically distant from each other. Bandwidth will be high - but perhaps not as high as 100 based LAN.

What options do I have? Will it require third party software?

Hello,
Ackording to your scenario...

i would recommend you something called as Geo-Clustering which is supported by Exchange Server 2003.

you can follow the below link to know in and out about geo-clustering.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/2003/geocluster.mspx

and Geo - Clusters are clusters comprised of nodes that are placed in different physical sites. Geographically dispersed clusters are designed to provide failover in the event of a site loss due to power issues, natural disasters or other unforeseen events.

and i think this is wat you are looking for...

If you need any further help plz do let me know..

Regards,
Abhijeet

Thanks. This gets me in the right direction.

They talk in this article many times about Third party products to facilitate the synchronous or asynchronous replication of the data.

Are you familiar with any products such as this designed for exchange?
