Hi,

We have a requirement to have full replication(real-time) between two sites . I haven't got a clue about this but we are in the fortunate position of having dedicated fibre(20km).

The scenario is that we currently have one site with exchange 2003. We are about to have a second site with a dedicated fibre link , at the moment, 1gb, only our traffic. Both sites will be 24/7. We would like to introduce real time fail over between the two sites. If one site goes down it doesn't matter, it can be either site and needs to be near real-time.We have had to two suppliers come in with two different opinions. Both has suggested going to 2007/2010 environment. One has suggested clustering(exchange) across the link the other says that isn't possible without additional software to manage it. They are suggesting a mixture of virtualisation etc.As newbie, I would like to know whether a pure Microsoft enviroment would do the job and experiences of similar situations. Thanks in advance
I'd definately say hang on until the autumn/fall when Exchange 2010 comes out with it's new replication features.

Microsofts TechNet website will give you all sorts of articles on this or look at http://msexchangeteam.com/
