Connection to Virtualization


Known for server fail-over replication, data protection and recovery. Adapted its Double-Take server fail-over replication and data protection product to support virtual environments as well as physical servers.

Why It’s Significant

Double-Take is one of a growing number of developers making utilities and add-on products designed to build manageability, and RAS (reliability/availability/serviceability) functions into both virtual servers as well as the physical servers on which they run. Without data protection, fail-over, data recovery and business continuity services, many data-center managers would resist running business-critical applications or data on virtual servers. Adding specific support for VMware virtual-server infrastructures to Double-Take’s existing support for physical servers provides the potential for coordinated recovery of both physical and virtual servers, and reduces Double-Take’s own risk in moving into a new market area.
