** EXACTLY TWO COPIES REQUIRED OF ABOVE TO SETUP FAILOVER MECHANISM

How failover will happen if one server goes down?
SQL server's native database mirroring service will be used, which will mirror the database between two servers with the lag of milliseconds. If one server goes down because of any software or hardware failure, backup server will be readily available to switch over with minimum downtime and almost no data loss. Original server IP address can be assigned to the backup server and all client can connect to the new server instantly.

For hard drive backup, we recommend for the standard RAID solution.
