I'm working on an off-site disaster recovery plan. What I'm trying to do is create virtual machine backups of all our physical servers that are onsite, and transfer them to be stored on an offsite location on a nightly basis. This way if something happened to the building, I would have a few VERY beefy machines running Virtual Machine, and I could restore these backups, making all my servers virtual temporarily and we could stay in business.
Is this idea possible? Where do I start?
