One more thing to consider...

If you repurpose your current box, yes you have to buy licenses (or buy
them with the new box)

But that would allow you to use the backup system for reporting / data
analytics...
My understanding is you can't do that with a CBU box.

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.
