Become a High Availability Expert with the most in-depth and realistic High Availability video instruction on the market! Exchange Server 2010 High Availability by J. Peter Bruzzese demonstrates multiple HA groups across two different sites – one in New York and one in Los Angeles, giving you a real-life setup using two hyper-v servers and up to 15 virtual machines.
Email, almost from its inception, has been a mission-critical component to an organization’s communication. Email services must be available 24/7 so you simply can’t have it go down. From a company & compliance perspective there is zero tolerance for data loss..
Solutions to provide higher levels of availability and data retention have been available since Exchange first came out, however the expense of utilizing these solutions was typically so astronomical that you simply couldn’t afford it if you were a small or medium sized business.
With Exchange 2007 and now to the next level with Exchange 2010, a solution has been implemented to provide for greater high availability without the overwhelming costs. Using a solution called Continuous Replication (CR) where the active, mounted database is copied over to a passive server as a replica, and then kept up to date by having the transaction logs shipped over and replayed into the passive or target database, we have an incredible solution built into Exchange called “Database Availability Groups” or DAG for short.
DAGs are the most cost effective, easy to work with, and reliable solution for high availability of your Exchange environment. You have the ability to create multiple replicas (not just a single passive copy) that can be both local (within your datacenter) or remote (in a secondary datacenter or branch office). It provides the ability to have immediate failover in the event of a disk or database failure and a server failure. It even provides the ability to perform a datacenter switchover in the event your entire site goes down. And all of this at a fraction of the cost of what it used to cost to provide only a tiny bit of resiliency and redundancy.
