Best options for Exchange 2003 Disaster Recovery - Cluster or VMWare or Both?
Posted on 2008-11-10
We have a SAN and currently presented VDisks to our exchange 2003 server and use CA to replicate teh Vdisks to our secondary SAN. After consideration I now want to increase our DR Solution. My options are as follows:-
1. Exchange 2003 Clustering
2.VMware and virtualising Exchange
3. VMWare and virtualising Exchange with Clustering
4. Convert Exchnage to boot from SAN
I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the above and what the recommended solution is.
Our VM Servers are high spec DL585 servers and host a limited number of servers. We use CA for data replication to our DR site SAN and want a solution that will be of good performance yet be fast to recover.
