Looking for some real world advice for disaster recovery
Currently we have 2 physical sites about 300 miles apart with a 500mb com link between the 2 sites
We have approximately 20 virtual servers that make up our production services including sql, exchange, share point and other Microsoft servers all running windows 2008r2 operating system utilizing hyper-v
Our San storage is based on dell,s
Anyone have some thoughts on what can be used for failover
We would like to bring DR site within 2 hrs of failure at primary
We also have about 35tb of data on the primary site
We are looking to replace current dr solution for somethimg that is extremely reliable and ease to execute
You should be able to replicate your data across that link OK, depending on the volatility of your data.
BUT the problem is going to be because of your 35TB of data, the initial silver of the mirror and the failback to the primary after an error.
500Mb/s = 50MB/s which means that it will take 195 hours or just over 8 days to move all that data
