About MailShadow, DR Done Right!™

MailShadow® replicates selected mailboxes from multiple Exchange servers to a single active DR Exchange server. Using a service account to acquire message transactions removes the need to install any software on the Exchange servers. MailShadow uses transaction replication technology to move all Exchange content, including calendars, contacts, to the DR Exchange server, and checks the integrity of all data prior to forwarding transactions. After failover, Outlook, OWA, ActiveSync, Blackberry, etc. are fully functional, and complete mailbox content is available.
