DAG failover is automatic to its Standby partner in case any issues on the Active server.
DAG uses minimum cluster Windows as a base and works more over Exchange.

Yes DAG is supported in the Exchange 2010 Standard edition

The limitation of Standard Edition of exchange is that you can only have 5 databases per server, this includes any database copies.

You will still need Windows Server Enterprise Edition.
