witness hosting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know where I can get SQL Server 2005 witness hosting?  Our primary server is in Vermont and our DR site is in New Hampshire.  I would like to set up a witness server somewhere off the east coast.  I don't want to have to purchase a new server and pay big prices for colo. 

    Is there such a thing as witness hosting?  Would someone be willing to host my witness and I can host yours?

  • This is an interesting question - I've not heard it asked before. I'm also not aware of any company that provides separate Witness hosting. There is nothing that would prevent someone from starting such a company if they felt that enough customers would be interested in the service.
