IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - Vision Solutions, Inc., the world's leading provider of information availability software and services for Windows, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Cloud Computing markets, recently received the 2010 Golden Software Award in China for its Double-Take Availability product.

Software and Information Services, a publication based in China, announced in its February issue that Vision Solutions has won the prestigious 2010 Golden Software Award for its Double-Take Availability product. While Vision Solutions took home one of the highest honors, other notable winners included Cisco WebEx, IBM Cloud Computing Solutions, and Quantum Corporation's StorNext 4.1.

About Double-Take Availability

  • Double-Take Availability combines continuous real-time replication and automatic failover capabilities for disaster recovery, high availability, and centralized backup on physical or virtual Windows servers. The software uses patented replication and failover capabilities that continuously capture byte-level changes as they occur while replicating those changes to a local server or over any WAN link.
  • Double Take Availability captures disk-writes at the host's file system layer while all applications (including virtual machines writing to virtual disks) operate above the actual file system layer. This allows the solution to transparently and reliably protect that data by replicating it via its normal mechanisms to a target server running another copy of Double-Take Availability.
  • On the target side, Double-Take Availability simply applies the same file update commands to the duplicate files that reside on the target server -- sending only real-time byte-level changes across any IP connection.

According to Alan Arnold, CTO & EVP at Vision Solutions:
"We are honored to win a prestigious industry award from a leading technology publication like Software and Information Services. Our high availability solutions for Windows, IBM Power Systems, Linux and Cloud environments are used by over 21,000 customers globally and it is exciting to have them play an important part in Asia, the world's fastest growing geography."

Matt Thatcher, vice president of sales, Asia Pacific and Japan, Vision Solutions:
"The renowned Software and Information Services chose Vision Solutions' Double-Take Availability product based on its real-time application and data protection features, flexible deployment options, user-friendliness and affordable price. We are honored to receive this recognition."

Hu Kunshan, Commissary of 2010 Golden Software and Golden Service Award Council
"The Golden Software award was created to commend software products and solutions in the China software and information service industry which showcases outstanding performance in terms of marketing, application and product capability.
