Message Continuity quietly replicates Exchange data to Google Apps

Are you administering an Exchange server at work? Constantly fretting over the possibility of unplanned downtime leading to a user revolt? Google's offering a new tool which could save your bacon. It's called Message Continuity, and it provides you with a Gmail fallback option should you experience an Exchange outage.

Message Continuity replicates your Echange users' mail, calendar entries, and contacts -- but tasks are not supported at the moment. The tool is based upon Postini, which Google acquired in 2007, and it certainly looks like a slick way to ensure you're always prepared for a mail-related disaster.

... And so the Google van pulls up with its tinted windows, offering delicious candy to administrators... How many will bite?
