Exchange 2010 Hosted Redundancy or Failover? Need to keep those emails a'rollin'!

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have an Exchange 2010 SP1 Stand-Alone in our data center....
I want off-site redundancy (ability to get to the Information Store DB) offsite in the event we go down...
What is a good service for "backup" email systems at a hosted center or in the cloud?

I don't necessarily have to have complete replication as we have disaster recovery / backups  in place... ... Primarily what I want is if our Exchange server goes down, for maintenance or unplanned/outages... Is for the email to keep comin' and goin'... Without having to purchase a second server or lease a dedicated server/virtual server and cluster/replicate...
What are my options..??
Thanks!

You can't have only one server and then want to have email up if that server si going down. You need at leat one more server to be configured as Standby continuous replication (SCR) for your first server (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676502(EXCHG.80).aspx)

LEt me rephrase....
I need a Hosted Microsoft Exchange Continuity provider, who specifically will take the Store and AD, sync and replicate then make available in the event of an outage at the business location...
Sorry.. Was not talking about offsite mirror.. I should have beenmore specific...
