IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – April 19, 2013) – Vision Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of cloud protection and recovery, high availability and disaster recovery, and migration and cross-platform data sharing solutions and a Microsoft® Gold Partner, today confirmed that its Double-Take® MOVE(tm) solution has all the capabilities enterprises require to migrate their Windows Server workloads into Microsoft’s Windows Azure Infrastructure Services cloud platform, which was announced on April 16th. Double-Take MOVE enables enterprises to perform easy, no-risk, near-zero downtime migrations from any combination of physical, virtual or cloud platforms into the new Windows Azure Infrastructure Services.
“Windows Azure really represents the next generation of cloud computing,” said Alan Arnold, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Vision Solutions. “As a long time Microsoft partner, we are excited to be ready to provide support for near-zero downtime migrations to customers moving to Windows Azure.”
Double-Take MOVE assists businesses looking to trim computing costs and improve efficiency through cloud computing. With Windows Azure, businesses can take advantage of one consistent platform regardless of where workloads are running.
Additionally, customers can benefit from consistency in heterogeneous environments between Microsoft datacenters, hosted datacenters and their own internal datacenters.
Windows Azure provides Double-Take MOVE customers with:
* Flexible development
* Unified management
* Integrated virtualization
* Complete data platform
Double-Take MOVE protects business productivity with resource-friendly, real-time replication technology that allows users and applications to remain productive while the migration is happening. It also provides the flexibility to migrate a specific set of data or an entire server, including the file system, permissions, attributes, compression and encryption setting — all without suspending production operations. Customers can take advantage of Double-Take MOVE to migrate their workloads from any physical server or hypervisor, on premise or cloud installation into Windows Azure. So whether customers need to move from a physical server to Windows Azure or from VMware to Windows Azure to reduce IT costs, Double-Take MOVE is the tool to enable those migrations.
