HP Storage Mirroring & Exchange Storage Groups

Hi Gurus'
We are proposing to have 2 sites for exchange with active directory. Each site will be using BL45 severs with eva 4000/ san and would be clustered. Each cluster will be having 2 servers one active& the other passive. Each site would have 50% of our email users. Each server would be having HP storage miroring software. At each site the exchange will be configured with a storage group and a redundant storage group.
Can the HP storage mirroring software be used to copy [ asynchronously/synchrously] the Storage group1 from site A to the Recovery storage group1 at site B and also Copy the Storage group2 from siteB to Redundant storage group2 at site A.

Thanks in advance Faizer

Re: HP Storage Mirroring & Exchange Storage Groups


Storage Mirroring is host based Windows Software that replicates data from a "source" host to a "target" host. It also simplifies the prodecure to bring the "target" host online, meaning the "target data"... in the case of a source failure.

Multiple source/target definitions can be configured.

CA also offers replication and is hardware based, but is obviously more expensive. How are the 2 sites connected?
