Double-Take Software
Double-Take Software ConsultingDouble-Take Software publishes a family of products designed to provide small companies a variety of affordable solutions for backing up and recovering business-critical applications such as Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Blackberry, and SharePoint. Double-Take products work with leading virtual environments including Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware and also support Windows Server clusters to maximize network availability and minimize recovery time in case of a catastrophic failure. Double-Take replication products have earned Microsoft certification for Windows 2000, 2003, and 2008 at every level from Standard through Datacenter editions. Progentís disaster recovery planning consultants have extensive experience integrating Double-Take technology into small business information networks to achieve a high level of fault tolerance and disaster recovery capability at a budget-friendly price.

Double-Take Backup Software for Continuous Server Backup and On-demand Restoration
Double-Take Backup features continuous, real-time replication to disk, allowing network users to stay online during replication and restoration and eliminating the network downtime associated with scheduled backups. By copying all data changes as soon as they happen, Double-Take Backup prevents data loss that can occur with traditional solutions that rely on scheduled backups or periodic snapshots. Because Double-Take Backup utilizes fast, fault-tolerant disks rather than slow, unreliable tape for storage, replication is transparent to users, restoration is dependable, and recovery time is short.

Double-Take Backup also lets you perform on-demand recoveries to server hardware that is different from the original server, or between virtual and physical servers, giving you flexibility in designing and repurposing your network hardware. To help meet the requirements of your business continuity plan, Double-Take Backup allows you to back up to any remote disaster recovery site. This capability also saves the cost and administrative hassle of backing up branch offices in the field.

Double-Take Availability Software for Real-time Replication to a Remote Disaster Recovery Site
Double-Take Availability allows you to configure failover clusters without shared storage or geographic restrictions. This improves the fault-tolerance of your backup/restore solution by reducing the vulnerability of Windows-based clustering to single-point failure and also gives you the convenience of situating your cluster nodes anywhere.

Double-Take Availability offers a wide variety of data compression options that provide a high level of flexibility in deciding how to allocate your network resources for optimal performance. Double-Take Availability also improves system performance by implementing byte-level asynchronous replication. This reduces the workload on your servers and communications network and ensures that the continuous replication process does not bog down your business applications.

Restoration with Double-Take Availability minimizes the disruption of your operations and maximizes the protection of your data. You are not required to take business applications offline while restoring data. Any changes that users make between the initiation of a restore and the start of failback are replicated to the source.
