EMC RepliStor SMB Edition


EMC Insignia RepliStor is aimed at the real-time Windows backup market. EMC inherited the product when it acquired Legato and the current version is 6.1.1. It works by allowing you to create source directories on a server and have them replicated to another machine. As changes occur to the files in the source directory the target directory is updated.

The software is supplied with an installation manual, an administrator's guide and a small case containing a CD and your licence code.


This is a great product. It does what it says on the box but could be a little easier to work with. EMC needs to revise the documentation, make installation components clearer and ship a proper SMB licence.
