Hi,

I have a customer with Exchange 2010 standard and Windows 2008 Enterprise. I have setup a small DAG with essentially 2 exchange servers with CAS, HUB and DB's on, they replicate over a WAN to a failover site, no clients connect to this site, it is just for DR. They have approved a budget to improve this following a db corruption/restore, however i have not got a lot to play with as it is only 40 users.

I was thinking about adding two more servers at the primary site, one more DB server and a CAS/Hub Transport server, then splitting 3 databases across the two db servers using DAG and active/passive modes on alternate db's. I have a visio but no way of uploading it to here.

Could you please a) advise me if this will work and b) tell me if i need a hardware load balancer as all the MS articles mention it!

Thanks in advance...

Kris

For just 40 users, this is a lot of hardware.

Have you considered Office 365 as a solution?
