Moving Exchange database to another server

Hi,
I am planning a Disaster Recovery design and would like to do the following:
Install one Exchange 2003 Cluster EX-SRV1 in Routing Group-A and another Exchange 2003 Cluster EX-SRV2 in Routing Group-B. And somehow copy all the database (incremental) of EX-SRV1 to EX-SRV2 and vice-versa. So that if any of the Site is down due to any disaster, I will have a recent copy of the database of the other server.
Now considering that the EX-SRV1 is down and I have a copy of EX-SRV1 databases on EX-SRV2. Can I just create a new Storage Group and mount the database? Will this work or atleast by using Recovery Storage Group, can it be acheived ?
Any other suggestions to prepare a disaster recovery site?
