DR for BES Express
Posted on 2012-08-22
I have been tasked with trying to figure out a way to do this.
BES Express with Database on a SQL 2008 Std Server, ~20 users. VMware based.
I am thinking of using database mirroring and/or log shipping to a DR site where I have another BES Express server set up to look at the DR Database, with all the services turned off.
Should the main site go down completely, I would start all the BES services on the DR site.
Would this work? The DR site would also have a Backup DC, along with a second Exchange Server (DAG), SQL Server and BES.
