Exchange 2010 Supportability with Hyper-v Replica

November 21, 2012 Leave a comment

I got a question from one of my colleagues about Exchange 2010 DAG support and Hyper-v Replica, Hyper-v Replica is a great feature that was shipped with Microsoft Windows Server 2012, it enables customers to replicate VMs from site to site for DR purposes.

a confusing diagram is published here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831716.aspx and that implies that Exchange is supported with Hyper-v Replica.

the solid statement that I had and confirmed by the Exchange product group that Hyper-v Replica is not supported at all with Exchange products (2010/2013) and in DAG and without DAG, if you want to protect Exchange server you must configure a DAG and use the Exchange level replication technology or use a 3rd party replication software or hardware that is certified to work with Exchange.
