I dont undertstand you Q:
1. Do you want to config  log shipping with delay of a few hours between 2 databases?
     I can send you the steps...

P.S  - The SQL SERVER on a cluster is the same as SQL SERVER in standalon server

Good luck


on my server there are 32 databases so i can i secure these databases from accidental delete or wrong query execution.
sure you can

Use log shipping with delay of 6 hours
Use this link to create 32 DBs more  - that will be in recovery all the time with delay of 6 hours
if you will have a delete/insert/update    you can stop the sync open the DB and save the tables.
(you can use this link:   http://databases.about.com/od/sqlserver/ht/Transaction_Log_Shipping.htm)

If you dont have to do it fast  you can just use a normal full recovery model with log backups
when you will have a problem restore only the problematic DB  to point in time and save the data

Good luck!

Also consider creating database snapshots which could allow you to create several point-in-time and queryable data sources while minimising disk space.

Regarding database snapshot

remember  - Only 2 snapshots are allowd on the same database !

Good luck
