When we say Exchange we could mean Exchange 2007, 2010 or even 2013. How does HA differ between these three offerings. How has Microsoft enhanced their offering so that you might be willing to make the jump to 2010 or 2013 due to the HA features involved to improve server and site resiliency? J. Peter Bruzzese, Exchange MVP, will help you answer those questions.

You will learn:

  • A review of the HA solution from continuous replication roots in Exchange 2007 to its modern DAG implementation in Exchange 2013
  • Design and deployment strategies for HA with DAGs
  • Caveats between site failovers and switchovers and a review of how Exchange 2013 attempts to improve the situation
