We're wrapping up our Beta of Exchange 2007 SP1 (to be released through TechNet plus this April), and as always we wanted to discuss it publicly here first. We are targeting final release with Longhorn Server 2nd half of this year.
Our work in this service pack is purely in response to your feedback on earlier releases of Exchange 2007. A partial list of what you'll find included in this SP is:
Standby Continuous Replication (SCR)
For such a great feature, we obviously needed a new name!
With Exchange 2007, we introduced Clustered Continuous Replication (CCR) for replication of data between 2 servers within a cluster within the same datacenter. With SCR, data replicates to a non-clustered server in a remote datacenter. If the primary datacenter becomes unavailable, the standby replica in the second datacenter is readily available to be activated.
