Greetings gowhar. What I'm trying to understand from your inquiries, 'why' the need to failover to a new DR. The reason I'm asking is, lets say you experience a fabric outage (ie natural disaster occurs, power outage and generator failure), in this scenario, you would need a complete redundant fabric at your DR site for this scenario to be applicable. If we are talking just a down server, in that scenario, either suggestion/recommendation of:
So my personal recommendation would be option #1. My reasoning, option #2, the failover can take just as long as doing option #1. The only downside to #1 is you have to have a new server ready to go.
So again, if you could add just a bit more information that would be helpful to give you a 'brocade perspective' answer.
