Hello everybody.,

I wanted to get some ideas from all of you on redundancy... I have a Dell Poweredge 2900 running
SBS 2008, using VMware server with two VM servers SBS 2008, blackberry server and Peachtree server.  the sever is also a exchange, file server, SharePoint, print server, DNS and DHCP server, I have Raid on the server but if something should happed to the physical server like fire or flood I am in big trouble, I backup the server daily and take the drives home with me.   I wants to get some redundancy Ideas...... eather moving everything to a cloud or getting a server on a external data center and sync both server together.

does anybody have any experience with cloud services?

Thank you all in advance

I am presently running mirrored servers from an office in Los Angeles, CA to an office in Las Vegas, NV using Double-Take software. I am creating redundancy in real time for two Oracle database servers with disaster recovery.  The two locations have a dedicated T1 circuit between them.  This is not cheap but it works great.

Here is the link to the Double Take site: http://doubletake.com

There are also many cloud solutions you can look into that can accomplish this too.  The main key to any kind of offsite redundancy is to make sure you have enough bandwidth to handle the amount of data that will be sent to the remote location.
