EMC Recover Point or MirrorView/A
Posted on 2009-07-10
Environment will be Blade Servers running VMWare w/ CLARiiON CX-3 20. Cookie cut at DR site. Goal is to sync the LUNs on the two arrays between sites (will be over a WAN link so synchronous is out) and use VMWare Site Recovery Manager to automate a recovery in the event of a failure.
I understand Recover Point is probably the ideal solution but for cost justification and feasibility, would MirrorView/A be a sound technology for what I want to accomplish? I am comfortable with a 15 minute update interval. Also will MirrorView/A be solid with Exchange databases for consistency?
