Replay 2.1's high-availability capability, VirtualHA, continually transitions the Exchange server running on either physical equipment or within a virtual machine (VM) to a virtualized disaster recovery (DR) environment. VirtualHA continually performs Exchange data store mountability checks to validate application data.

Replay's features include the following:
- Instant replay capability: Get server backup and recovery from corrupted or lost Exchange databases, server failures, viruses or application errors to any point in time in minutes. Replay's instant replay capability reduces volume recovery times from hours to minutes, regardless of the size of the data set being recovered.
- High availability: Replay automatically transitions the Exchange server to a standby DR environment, whether it's running on physical equipment or within a VM. The suite also delivers application-aware and Exchange corruption-free VMs for mailbox servers, domain controllers and BlackBerry Enterprise Servers (BES).
- Recovery module: An easy-to-use module recovers, searches, exports and analyzes email and mailbox content directly from any unmounted Microsoft Exchange Data Store (EDB).
System requirements: At least one of the following -- Exchange 2003 SP2, Exchange 2007, BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) or domain controllers
Pricing: Replay 2.1 Enterprise Edition costs $995 per server. Replay 2.1 Standard Edition is available for $500 per server.
