About the Products

Double-Take by Vision Solutions

The product that will be presented as part of the solution strategy is Double-Take Availability. The Availability product is part of the overall Double-Take suite of products. Double-Take Availability provides application aware, asynchronous, block-level replication that can be configured for file, folder, volume or full server protection. And that’s just the beginning!


Veeam Backup Free Edition by Veeam Software

Trust me, you need this product. Why? It’s free, and it’s awesome. For managing on-demand backups, server migrations, lab builds and much, much more.

Veeam Backup Free Edition provides the same capabilities to capture live machine state in a recoverable vmdk format. The tool gives you a taste of the real power which is when you engage the full Veeam Backup


vSphere Replication by VMware

VMware has taken their native replication product as delivered within SRM 4.0 and they have made it part of the vSphere product suite out of the box for Essentials Plus Edition and higher. By adding a replication suite with a native vCenter plugin they have made a huge leap towards being a total end-to-end product and protection suite.
