Are database copies really the only HA option for Exchange 2010?

I've been researching transitioning from a clustered Exchange 2003 environment to a similar 2010 environment but, from what I can tell, I have to double my storage to do this? Is that right, or am I just reading it wrong? Because, I have to be honest, it seems a little ridiculous.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

DAG's are the only database HA option in Exchange 2010, and yes, you would need double the storage.
