I'm looking into utilizing MSMQ in our enterprise applications. The one area I haven't been able to find information on is with disaster-recovery.
A fire has broken out in the server room. All the equipment has been destroyed and we need to run the operations out of a backup site several miles away.
With SQL server, we have replication enabled which provides a stand-by copy of the operation database at the backup site. In the event of disaster, we can switch over to the stand-by site and continue with an up-to-date database.
With MSMQ, I would like to know how I can achieve the same style of replication, so that if the server a queue is hosted on suddenly ceases to exist, we should be able to switch to a stand-by queue which contains the same unprocessed messages.
Can this be achieved? If MSMQ can't easily manage this, is it possible to do something at the storage level?
