Disaster recovery plan for small server
Posted on 2014-07-29
Hi, we have a Dell server running on Win2008 R2. There are 4 VMs running under Hyper-V. These VMs are a Domain Controller, a Terminal Services server, an Exchange 2010 server and another VM that serves the accounting dept.
There is an office located quite a distance away but in the same building. This office has a network connection to the main office via Ethernet cabling.
I would like a simple disaster recovery method for an offsite backup.
What I was thining of is to have a NAS, like a Synology NAS that will backup the VMs automatically twice a day or so. This NAS will be located at this distanced office. Is there any downside to this?
Another method is more expensive but perhaps an identical server located at this distanced office that replicates the VMs at the main office.
Thoughts and suggestions?
