Virtualized Exchange on Amazon EC2 for a DR site - has anyone tried this ?
Posted on 2011-03-09
We are exploring some options for a DR site for an Exchange 2010 installation.
This is part of Exchange 2010 migration plan.
Present - Exchange 2003
Virtualized Exchange 2010
on 2 Dell r710 rack mount servers. Backend Dell iSCSI SAN
MBX and CAS virtualized
Using vmware vSphere
AD's on physical server, not virutalized.
Amazon EC2 running the same instance Exchange 2010 instance
Does it make sense to have a DAG Replication going on with a VM instance in EC2 ?
Please feel free to suggest options / alternatives with High Availability / Price considerations.
I am not sure if 500 points will be sufficient for your thoughts :)
Thanks for your input.
