How can we improve Kerio Connect?

enable hotbackup/failover for server in seperate location, as so no downtime for users

create feature whereas the kerio connect server at site A has a sister site at site B, so as if server A goes down or becomes unreachable, site B will automatically take up the slack, ensuring uptime/connectivity for users.

for crucial mission critical environments the ability for users to connect to 'mail.company.com' and have the round robin dns pick whatever site is up (Site A or Site B) and route accordingly is CRITICAL (for us especially)

    @Kerry Hormann
    Nope.
    - Running in separate datacenters is much harder due to the centralized storage
    - Running on bare metal is still needed
    - Errors on OS or Kerio level are still a problem on a virtualisation cluster. If you OS won't boot, there is no HA that helps when HA needs a working machine.

    Wouldn't this be better accomplished via established enterprise-class high-availability features in products like VMware, XenServer, and MS cluster services?
