Replay Solutions Granted U.S. Patent for Virtualized 'Record and Replay' of Computer Programs

Leader in Application Problem Resolution Continues to Trail Blaze Software Quality Assurance

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - Replay Solutions (, a leader in application problem resolution, today announced the company has been granted U.S. Patent No. 7,506,318 for its award-winning approach to reproducing and identifying software issues across the application lifecycle. As software technology advances, the need to reproduce and identify issues in seconds has become critical. Replay Solutions' innovative record and replay technology helps customers quickly identify and address the root cause of defects, security issues and performance problems.

"This patent defines the technology powering our unique approach to rapidly resolving software issues that can negatively impact a business' bottom line," said Jonathan Lindo, CEO and co-founder of Replay Solutions. "We are proud that our patented TiVo-like approach is delivering real innovation enabling complex applications to run more safely, securely and with less downtime."

Maintaining software applications and fixing errors costs companies millions of dollars and impacts the ability to get products to market on time. The first step to fixing any application defect is to reproduce it, but traditionally this has been an inefficient, time consuming and manual process.

Replay Solutions' flagship product, ReplayDIRECTOR, functions like a DVR for software applications -- recording inputs and events affecting the software, and providing the ability to "rewind" and replay any issue or scenario exactly as it happened. ReplayDIRECTOR uses application virtualization to replicate the original environment in which the issue occurred, eliminating the need to recreate the database, load or any other aspect of the original environment.

"Replay's recent customer successes, industry recognition and patent granting have further enhanced its place as the innovation leader in this space," said Mark Gorenberg, a managing director at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners and acting member of Replay's Board of Directors.
