DoubleTake/Carbonite Backup Software for Continuous Server Backup and On-demand Restoration
DoubleTake/Carbonite 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, DoubleTake/Carbonite Backup prevents data loss that can occur with traditional solutions that rely on scheduled backups or periodic snapshots. Because DoubleTake/Carbonite 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.
DoubleTake/Carbonite 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, DoubleTake/Carbonite 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.
DoubleTake/Carbonite Availability Software for Real-time Replication to a Remote Disaster Recovery Site
DoubleTake/Carbonite 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.
Continuous data replication to a secondary site ensures near zero data loss
DoubleTake/Carbonite 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. DoubleTake/Carbonite 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 DoubleTake/Carbonite 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.
