    weapons: Hyper-V Replica

       There are more than 300 new features coming in Windows
        Server 2012. One worth noting is Hyper-V Replica

       “The list of new features in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V is
        staggering but the new one that stands out to me is Hyper-V
        Replica (HVR). HVR is built into Hyper-V at no extra cost and
        is designed specifically for those branch offices and
        small/mid-size enterprises that cannot afford an expensive
        SAN-based or host-based replication solution with their
        required expensive bandwidth. In fact, HVR has been
        designed to work on commercial broadband with no special
        hardware. “
