Is having active/active a requirement, or could you have a passive standby in the remote location? If you have VMWare in your environment, VMWare SRM (VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager - Data Disaster Recovery for Servers) could be leveraged to set this up fairly easily, and provided DB replication is already configured.
Did you successfully use SRM to implement DR/HAbetween gegraphically distant site? Do you have any document, diagrams or some bullet points on how to use it effectively?
I am wondering why do you need DB sync seperately if you can leverage SRM for that VM as well (since we havethe DB on a VM)?

Hey Rob - yeah active/active is that way they want to go. Who am I to argue? I'm only the techie! On the VMWare side of things, they're so reliant on monitoring that complete independence from the shared infrastructure is now a requirement, so we're looking at moving to all physical (redundant) servers.
