I have a web, database, and domain controller server each running on Windows 2008. I am trying to create an instant redundancy strategy in case any of the servers burns or disappears.
I thought maybe the best way to do this is to clone each of the servers into a virtual machine and test that it runs. This way I can power it off and it will be ready to take over any time. I would clone the servers nightly so they would have the latest settings. Has anyone done this or recommend a way to do this?
