Hi,

A replica does not survive an internal corruption....surely you would just 
duplicate the corruption?......unless you are telling me there is a way to 
avoid that with replication alone?

So for me its like Raiding disks.....a tape backup survives a data corruption 
and isnt really there for a hardware failure....call my paranoid but a tape 
(OK, I now have a virtual tape library) has saved my ass often enough that want 
them.

Why not just create a replica? Saves you the restore part at least..
