DAG is a set of sixteen (or less) Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 or 2013 mailbox servers that provide automatic database-level recovery from a database, server, or network failure. The mailbox servers in a DAG monitor each other for failures. When a mailbox server is added to a DAG, it works with the other servers in the DAG to provide automatic database-level recovery. For information, see Database Availability Groups (DAG).
