How to use a QA system as a Production backup?


We have two MS clusters at different sites that are identical hardware setups. Both are running Window 2003 R2 Enterprise Ed and MS SQL 2005 Enterprise Ed. One of the clusters is running our ERP SID system and the other is running our ERQ SID.

What we want to do is be able to have our ERQ system at our DR site become on the ERP system in the event of a disaster at the ERP system site. We are using a software product called DoubleTake to replicate data in real time from the ERP to the ERQ site.

But we need some guidance on how to “mount the ERP data on the ERQ system.”

Has anyone had experience using a QA system as a PRD system backup? Does anyone have any documents/resources that may get us looking in the right direction on how to do this?
