Double-Take Buys TimeSpring

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- Double-Take Software (NASDAQ: DBTK) today announced the acquisition of TimeSpring®, a continuous data protection software company. The acquisition bolsters Double-Take Software’s protection and back-up capabilities for virtualized and physical server environments. Double-Take Software will integrate TimeSpring’s unique abilities to create any-point-in-time application consistent recovery points into its suite of product offerings.

“We feel TimeSpring offers the best point-in-time recovery capabilities in the market and we are thrilled that Double-Take Software has selected us to extend its protection and recovery portfolio,” said Rick Carlson, CEO of TimeSpring.

With this acquisition, Double-Take Software broadens its overall recovery strategy. Today business customers use Double-Take continuous data replication to instantly recover the most recent version of their data, applications and operating system. Adding TimeSpring to the Double-Take suite of products, the company extends its recovery approach beyond disaster recovery for catastrophic failures, to operational recovery, such as recovering from routine human errors. TimeSpring enhances Double-Take to perform granular, or item-level recoveries, from any point in time. The combination of Double-Take continuous replication with TimeSpring’s Any-Point-In-Time capabilities allows IT administrators the ability to “rewind” and “fast-forward” the data on the server and recover to the moment before an unwanted change.
