Default How often should the BES db be backed up, for DR purposes?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to set up our BES environment for DR.

There is a document located here Livelink - Redirection on how to set up transactional log shipping and also how to fail over a BES and SQL server. I get most of it, but I'm not sure what the guide refers to when it says "set up services that support multiplicity", etc. No idea. Those options aren't even in my BES.

Anway, as a second option, I was considering just having the standby BES with the same SRP and then restoring the db.

How often does the data in a bes db actually change? Would once a day be recoverable if no significant changes were made during that last day (no new users/policies, etc).
