Double-Take Protects VMware

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- Further broadening its offerings for VMware environments, Double-Take Software today announced Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure, a solution that protects entire VMware virtual machines. Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure helps customers prevent downtime and data loss in virtual environments, making it an ideal component for customers implementing cost-effective disaster recovery and business continuity plans.

Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure runs on a single Windows® server in a virtualized environment, and allows administrators to centrally manage and monitor multiple virtual machine protection jobs from any Windows desktop using the client management console. Double-Take for VMware Infrastructure captures changes regularly, keeping the target virtual disks up to date and ready for failover, recovery and backup at any time. During an outage, the replicated virtual machine can be started on the target server with the latest replicated data available.

"Disaster recovery has emerged as a strong driver for the adoption of virtualization technology," said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions for VMware. "More than half our customers report using VMware Infrastructure 3 for business continuity purposes because of its simple recovery process and hardware independence."
