Double-Take Enhances Support

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Double-Take Software (NASDAQ: DBTK) - today unveiled its protection, availability and migration solutions for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V here at the Microsoft TechoEd conference, booth #809. Support includes real-time physical-to-virtual (P2V) full system replication for migration and failover, and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) replication and failover for maximum uptime. Double-Take Software will release an edition of Double-Take® specifically designed for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, allowing IT administrators to easily and continuously replicate and failover entire virtual machines between Hyper-V hosts for V2V disaster recovery and remote availability.

Double-Take Software will also add Hyper-V support to its existing P2V protection and migration solutions such as the Double-Take Virtual Recovery Assistant. The company will round out its suite of solutions by extending Hyper-V compatibility to its GeoCluster® product, which provides additional capabilities to Microsoft failover clustering. This functionality will extend the Quick Migration capabilities of Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V so that administrators can quickly migrate virtual machines from not just one host to another host, but also from one location to another remote location and remove the risk of having a single point of failure.

"As customers begin to adopt Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, we want them to know that Double-Take Software offers the tools they need to successfully migrate to and then protect their Hyper-V based virtual infrastructure," said Dave Demlow, chief technology officer, Double-Take Software.
