Managing local continuous replication in Exchange 2007
Local continuous replication (LCR), a high availability solution for the Exchange 2007's Mailbox Server role, uses the new continuous replication technology introduced in Exchange Server 2007. This backup and disaster recovery feature uses built-in asynchronous log shipping and log replay technology to create and maintain a copy of a storage group on a second set of disks that are connected to the same Exchange server as the production storage group.

Managing an Exchange 2007 cluster continuous replication setup
In a clustered continuous replication (CCR) setup solution in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, transaction logs generated on the active node are replicated to the information store on the passive server node. An Exchange 2007 CCR setup provides redundancy for both Exchange Services and the information stores.

Managing an Exchange 2007 single copy cluster setup
An Exchange Server 2007 single copy cluster (SCC), a clustered mailbox serve, provides backup using a single copy of a storage group that is shared between the nodes. The primary benefit of an SCC is that it provides high availability of server resources because one node takes over in disaster recovery should the active node be taken offline or fail for some reason.
