“Our clients’ applications live and die by SQL,” said Danny Welch, corporate systems manager at American HealthTech in Jackson, MS. “I’d recommend Replay for SQL— it is the best backup product I’ve ever used. Nothing is even close. We’ve used a lot of products, but nothing touches this!”

The award marks the latest of an impressive string of accomplishments this year by the four-year-old company, including:
