Neverfail recently announced platform service for Exchange Server 2010, and it’s about time. Their services can get you out of a jam, quick. Neverfail for Exchange 2010 replicates data in real-time to standby secondary or tertiary servers. It then monitors the performance and availability of the entire environment including related applications such as RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The program provides automatic or manually controlled switchover in the event of a failure within the infrastructure.

“People are looking for high availability or disaster recovery of their infrastructure, not just a single server,” said Andrew Barnes, vice president of corporate development at Neverfail.

The new release adds no major new features to Neverfail’s existing product designed to protect Exchange 2007 and 2003, but has been updated to support the architectural changes that Microsoft has made in the new Exchange 2010.

“Customers are likely to have several versions of Exchange in use on their network, and Neverfail can now protect all of these with a single release,” he said.
