Native backup can provide higher levels of data and system protection, but the need for 3rd-party software and hardware is still apparent. This document describes protection for Exchange Server 2010 and its component roles and illustrates how a combination of native solutions and offerings from Vision Solutions can provide a more complete solution for both high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR).
