Server 2008 replication/backup. What should we do?
So i've got my first job in it working in a school and im getting to know the systems that they have but the thing i have noticed is that there is a single server that does everything except storing of user data.
There are NAS drive with hot swap HDD in them that store the users private files but my biggest concern is that there is a single server which handles everything else. If that were to go down then everything would go including curriculum and admin.
In our workshop we do have two servers sat that, not even plugged in. Cant say how old they are at the mo but it seems a bit of a waste.
Is it possible to replicate the server onto one of these other servers so if the main server were to go down then the other server would kick in? I've never done anything like this before at uni so im learning by doing it.
Has anyone got any recommendations on wht we can do as i dont like the current situatiion?
