Okay, for the first part, what do you want to use to cluster your servers?

There are instructions in the Admin guide on how to configure EV in a Cluster but you can have a read of these:

we prefer VCS over MS for the type of cluster configuration you describe in your question.

For the DR part, you can use Enterprise Vault Building Blocks configuration, you can find this in the Docs.
You would probably also need a replica of your Enterprise Vault data in the DR Datacenter. This can be achieved for example by having a pair of Centeras. If you have plain old NTFS/CIFS storage, our product QUADROtech EVNearSync is able to Sync your data in an EV-aware way (e.g. safety copy integration)
