Seeing Double…Take

Things have been quiet on the Blog site recently and many of you have contacted me to see if I’m still alive! I can confirm that I’m alive and well and have simply been keeping the nose to the grind-stone!

I have been tech-lead on a very large and exciting project  so my blogging has taken a back seat! Today I thought I’d share some of that recent experience with you, which leads me to Vision Solutions Double-Take.

Double-Take allows for data synchronisation between physical servers and virtual environments, between disparate datacentres in fact just about any circumstance you can imagine!

Double-Take is software, it sounds simple but the benefit of this is we don’t need to rely on  expensive and complex SAN replication to sync data between two different geographic locations.

I used various replication products over the years from xCopy to SAN level and the beauty of Double-Take is that it is simple to use yet mature enough to be stable and organisation ready…

Organisation ready? Yes! Consider this, a SCOM management pack, PowerShell API and a very professional and knowledgeable support and pre-sales teams. My recent work has involved a large amount of deployment automation for complex state-full applications. Automating installation and configuration of Double-Take was a breeze!
