Video: High Availability in Exchange Server 2010 – Part 1

Exchange Server 2010 includes a new unified platform for both high availability and site resilience that is very different from the high availability model and solutions provided in previous versions. Exchange 2010 includes significant changes at its core that integrate high availability deep in its architecture, making it even less costly and easier to deploy and maintain than previous versions of Exchange.

In this and upcoming videos, I'll give you a tour of the new high availability features, such as database availability groups and mailbox database copies.

Please download the attached video and watch it full-screen.  It's just over 5 minutes, and it will familiarize you with the concepts and process for configuring highly available mailbox databases.  Part 2 is coming later this week.

    Guys MSExchange Team!

    I bet you install Exchange 2010 in your production now, am I right?

    Will there be an uncovering case study as in case with Exchange 2007?

    We enjoyed your details on E12 early deployment in MS!

    Tis very exciting can’t wait to see the part 2 so I can start building my lab. Thanks so much for sharing the knowdlege.

  4. Karsten says:

    Will where be a possibility in the GUI to switch all Databaseses of one Server (like on a Cluster Server today [cluster.exe])?

  5. Exchange says:

    Karsten, yes there is.  That process is called a ‘server switchover’ and you can perform a server switchover by using either the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.
