EMC Corp. has upgraded its Windows file server replication product, RepliStor, to support Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service. RepliStor 6.1 can take up to eight snapshots a day of the file server being replicated. Previously, the product replicated byte-for-byte from server A to server B. In other words, if you accidentally deleted a file in server A, the mistake would be automatically replicated in server B with no ability to go back in time and recover the data. The snapshot feature takes a point-in-time copy of the data enabling more granular data recovery. RepliStor 6.1 also provides recovery of Microsoft Exchange servers. The software will be available in the fourth quarter for $1,650 per server.
