Double-Take unveils version 8.0 with significant enhancements

Double-Take, the leading provider of IT Modernisation solutions, announced  Double-Take 8.0, bringing enhanced functionality to the DoubleTake  suite of products, including Double-Take Availability, Double-Take DR, Double-Take Move.

Among the major enhancements:

  • Linux support for Double-Take Move, automating complex migration processes for Linux  servers; offering low-risk, quick deployment and near-zero downtime migrations to and  from physical, virtual and cloud environments
  •  An expanded software development kit (SDK) including RESTful APIs enabling the  integration of Double-Take functionality within partner or customer applications and third party  consoles or enterprise monitoring systems

 “At Double-Take, we understand the intricacies associated with migrations of Linux-based  systems and how complex they can be, which is why we put a major emphasis on automation  and ease of use,” said Nicolaas Vlok, chief executive officer and president of Double-Take.  “Similarly, the expanded Double-Take SDK offers new options for integrating third-party  systems and applications with the Double-Take suite’s industry-leading functionality.”

Other version 8.0 enhancements include:

  • Enhanced Double-Take Availability capabilities for Linux, including point-in-time recovery  using snapshots, a virtual recovery appliance for Red Hat and CentOS, support for  encryption of replicated data, monitoring and scripting; Double-Take Availability for  Windows also delivers enhanced ease of use and support for complex network  topologies.
  • Double-Take Cloud Migration Center now automates discovery, provisioning and  orchestration of Windows server migrations from physical, virtual and cloud platforms to  Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware vCloud Director and  OpenStack.

“These are mission critical when running a migration: simplicity, accuracy and as little downtime  as possible; Double-Take is far ahead of the competition in all three,” said Rob Beeler, chief  technology officer of Double-Take. “Double-Take 8.0 has raised the bar for the industry yet  again.”
