what solution for disaster recovery
I am looking for a solution that will allow us to implement a disaster recovery scenario with a secondary site.
Currently we have only a primary site where all hardware is located. This hardware consists of a VMware esx cluster that runs windows2008 servers.
All storage is on a fujitsu dx80 that is connected with FC to the VMware cluster.
We want to setup a secondary site for failover but for sake of the budget we want to implement a proxmox or convirture cluster there to run our machines and for storage go for a Qnap IP-NAS.
the idea is to replicate the data of an exchange server, 2 SQL servers , and 2 fileservers to the secondary site.
When the primary fails, we start up the VM's on the proxmox cluster, and are ready to go.
so the solution will have to allow for vmware to proxmox/convirture failover as well as be able to handle the fact that our SAN's at the primary and secondary site's are from a different brand. replications mode can be asynchronous or synchronous. the two sites are connected over LAN
A sales rep from symantec told me that backup exec 2012 can do all this for us. But I am not so sure.
Can anybody help me with this?
