My chiropractor (also my customer) has an old server. I believe everything is adequately backed up, all the data, but if some day the server dies I want a second server mirroring the first closely enough that I could simply take the hard drive from the first server, put it in the second, and we’d be back in business again
But the server isn’t off the shelf. It was put together by another IT guy years ago. Where can I buy another server close enough to the first that if I were to take out the hard drive and put it in Microsoft wouldn’t scream about new hardware or we wouldn’t get a BSOD.
It doesn't have to match exactly. It could be a better/newer server. But I must be able to switch from one to the other seamlessly. My back depends on it. (LOL)
