High Availability is becoming so essential in Exchange environments as a means of providing more than simply uptime, but even methods of Disaster Recovery. Some admins have placed their confidence solely in the hands of their HA solution and have ceased doing backups altogether. Are you ready for such a bold move? Have you even looked into the HA features built right into Exchange?

In this session, Microsoft MVP and Exchange expert J. Peter Bruzzese will start you off with a clear explanation of Exchange storage architecture for Exchange 2007 and 2010. Then he will walk you through the concept of continuous replication HA and how CR is utilized in Exchange 2007 and 2007 SP1, leading up to the changes in Exchange 2010 and 2010 SP1 with the new DAG method of HA.
