Carbonite Move

Carbonite Move

Carbonite Move powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime.

Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.

Key features:

  • No downtime
  • Move physical, virtual or cloud servers to cloud targets
  • Streamlined SQL server migration
  • Automated, repeatable process

How it works?

Carbonite Move uses real-time, byte-level replication to create a replica of the data, applications, database or complete server being migrated. The replica is kept in sync, mirroring changes to all essential data—including permissions, attributes, file names, deletions and encryption settings.

Carbonite replication maximises bandwidth efficiency, sending the smallest possible chunks of data, incorporating multiple levels of compression and enabling bandwidth throttling. The target server can be validated and cutovers can be tested at any time without disrupting business operations.

Cutover automation is available through the unified, graphical console, and downtime is limited to seconds or minutes required for the cutover. If reverting to the original system becomes necessary, the execution is straightforward. The process is repeatable and predictable whether managed through the unified console or automated through scripting or integration with third-party tools.

Market demand

The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford.
