MSSQL replication speed

Hi,

We are currently working with MSSQL which is behind a load-balancer.
We have a new project which requires a high speed data storage and retrieve. we thought of using our MSSQL (running on Windows 2008 R2) which is of a high availability and replicates himself among two servers.
In our new project we are dealing with ~1000 requests per second which needs to be replicated in order to support high-availability environment (so if one server goes down the backup server will have all of the required data)
my question is: is the MSSQL is fast enough in order to support this pace of transactions while replicating?

Thanks

If you have enterprise level of ms sql server, configuring database mirroring from the clustered instance to a separate system might be your best bet. Prior to running the queries you can use snapshot on the mirrored instance and performing all the queries you need without adversely affecting your production environment.

You've not said the type of queries, so I presume theses are report (read only) queries.

In an Ha setup, usually they have a common storage such that only one system accesses the storage at a time, a failure of the one node, transitions to the second which then gets access to the underlying storage. The data in this type of setup is not replicating, access to the data is switched.
