We are running a small business server which is connected to 2 2008 STD servers. 1 file server 2 EDP server. The owner of the company has created a site offsite and wants a mirror of what he has here in the office.

EDP and file server piece of pie to replicate but what do i do about exchange? If something goes wrong on the site and we move to the remote site - how do I restore the edb database to be up-to-date?  I have thought maybe virtual server on the remote site using VME and Shadow protect. This is tricky and needs lots of Server resources. 2. Maybe setup the other site with a new database and exchange server and use ontrack power tools  to extract emails if needed. 3. Move both sites to Server std and put them in the forest /farm. Is there a quick way to transfer the edb database to the new server? Any other ideas?
