Default BES 5 and SQL Express

Hi folks

In our current environment we are using a separate SQL server with mirroring but now want to ditch that for financial reasons.

Question I have is if we install BES 5 using the install provided version of SQL, how can we manage failover. From what I understand if the Primary BES box dies we would have to do a manual DR of the BES SQL Database onto the secondary BES box.

Is our best route perhaps to use VM and VMotion on the BES Boxes? Or am I missing something with this.

Thanks in advance

You can run a remote SQL express instance. That will still allow BES to work with HA if both servers are using the same database.
