We will be replacing our existing P7 8205-E6C with a P8 8286-42A.
The old P7 8205-E6C is being considered as an HA/DR box.
I know it can be used, but is it cost effective?
I know very little about HA/DR, watched a few webcast demos years back.
1) I was told that a current box would not qualify for as a CBU box. if this is true. then we would have to purchase new licenses, etc for the HA/DR box. Possibly purchasing a new CUB box might be more cost effective.
2) Additional HA/DR software would need to be purchased, I'm looking for a list of all the options. (Power HA, MIMIX, ITERA). I did find this link.
Any thoughts or experiences from the group?
