High Availability Data - Server Mirroring
Posted on 2006-10-20
Ok, very high maintenance client, only 25 users, but they are movers and shakers.
When a fileserver started wailing due to a RAID failsafe situation, and a genius decided to immediately start restarting the server over and over, we ended up with a corrupt filesystem, causing several hours of downtime.
I would like to be able to replicate this data, in its live state, onto another server, and have the mappings remain persistent. So that a failover becomes transparent, or almost transparent.
What software would allow me to do this? The file server is 2003 R1 and the target server would also be 2003 R1. I have a feeling that FRS would not be the best choice, but what say you?
