Clarification Needed Exchange 2007 - 9.Jul.2007 6:09:05 PM

I am in the process of trying to decide whether I want to go with standard or enterprise edition for exchange 2007.  I understand the following:

Standard gets 5 storage groups  and 5 databases @16 TB/piece
Enterprise 50 Storage groups and 50 databases @16 TB/piece

SCC & CCR are only supported in Enterprise Edition.

My question is I am wanting to have a true failover cluster going and have my exchange server in 2 locations. Do I need 2 Keys for exchange 2007 Enterprise Edition if I wanted a true failover setup? So if Exchange Server A goes out Server B then takes over. Really my only question right now is licensing. Can anyone help me understand exactly.

Thank you
Tony

Hi Tony,

Yes unfortunately both SCC and CCR-based Exchange 2007 clusters requires an Enterprise license for all nodes participating in the cluster.

Hi Henrik,

Thank You for your reply I figured what I thought was true and appreciate your feedback. So let me ask this from someone who knows a lot about exchange 2007. Is there anyway to buy 2 Standard Exchange 2007 packages and use a 3rd party tools for failover purposes?

I am really wanting to have failover but dont want to pay 10k verses 25% of that if we go standard. Especially for something that will only be used once a year, if we take care of our network.

Once again I appreciate any help and input that you may be able to help me with. Also I have your book just haven't had time to crack it open. :(   I look foward to diving into it as I implement 2007 into our network.

Thank you
Tony
