Hi Guys,

I have Site A (Paris) with ExchSRV01 and Site B (LOndon) ExchSRV2.
I would like to set SCR between the two sites as the following :

1er Option:

In Site A:
ExchSRV01 source ------ > ExchSRV02 target

In the Site B:
ExchSRV02 source ------ > ExchSRV01 target


2eme option
installe dedicated SCR target server ( second exchange server in each site. ( may be more expensive)

witch option is prefered ?

My first input to you is actually a question back to you; What version of Exchange are we talking about? You posted in Exchange 2010 about features no longer in the product. Standby Continuous Replication is replaced by a new and improved feature called Database Availability Group, DAG.

If using DAG, the design you are thinking of is totally fine as long as you define 2 DAGs since if you have active users in both data centers and the WAN-link goes down you wouldn't want that to affect all users in that location.

Well, it depends really on how well your Servers can take the extra load of data. I'd try to scale up in your scenario instead of scaling out.

Less machines equals less licences, physical hardware and administrative efforts.
