Neverfail, a leading global software company specializing in affordable
continuous availability and disaster recovery solutions, today announced support
for Microsoft Exchange 2010. As a Microsoft Gold Certified partner and a member
of the Technology Alliance Program Neverfail’s unique combination of data
protection, monitoring and automation software can now ensure availability of
Microsoft Exchange 2010 deployments alongside previous versions of Exchange and
other business-critical applications.
The flexible nature of the Neverfail solutions complement the built-in
capabilities in Exchange 2010 by providing a single solution for continuous
availability with application aware monitoring and very rapid automated failover
of e-mail and other critical applications that interact with Exchange ensuring
business availability as a matter of course.
Exchange 2010 offers a number of new features, including new e-mail archiving
to battle inbox overload, improvements for e-mail administrators, significant
improvements for all Exchange clients and more flexible deployment options. To
protect businesses against the impact of e-mail downtime, Neverfail has extended
its award winning and proven solution to provide continuous availability of
Exchange 2010. The software monitors, automates and protects against both
unexpected as well as planned outages of Exchange implementations across
physical and virtual servers. In addition, it is the only integrated solution
that can keep Exchange users productive even when related software applications
"Microsoft Exchange 2010 introduces many significant changes. We have worked
closely with Microsoft to support this new platform from the beginning so that
our customers and other organizations can continue to benefit from a consistent
approach to high availability and disaster recovery across multiple
applications," said Andrew Barnes, senior vice president of corporate
development for Neverfail. "Today businesses rely on e-mail as a conduit for
information flow from many sources including applications based on SQL,
SharePoint, mobile and file content. When you are counting on critical
applications to operate your business, you need consistency. Neverfail has been
available to protect Exchange users around the world many years. We continue to
do the same for Exchange 2010 users."
Neverfail’s technology provides a single business continuity solution
protecting Exchange 2010, 2007, 2003 and other applications by replicating data
in real-time to standby secondary and optional tertiary servers. It then
monitors the performance and availability of the entire deployment environment
including related applications such as anti-virus, BlackBerry Enterprise Server
or protection of Exchange ActiveSync for Windows Mobile. Where issues in the
operating system, hardware component, software application or somewhere within
the network make an outage unavoidable, Neverfail detects this and provides an
automatic or manually controlled switchover, without requiring changes to active
directory, to keep the business running. As connections and services are
transferred, users do not experience any loss of availability.
