standby server removed in server 17 - replacements?

Hi Folks

 

With Standby Server being removed in 17 (for on premise installations), what are your plans to maintain a backup server for redundancy and availability reasons?

 

The feature wasn't perfect (in 16 at least) but did simplify configuring failover when needed. I suppose re-creating standby server functionality is possible by some combination of syncing progressive backups to another server, but that would require another, separate server license, I would think?

 

We don't plan to move to 17 until we have a replacement for the standby server feature...

 

Appreciate any insight.
