Alan Arnold, chief technology officer, Vision Solutions
"In today's competitive global market, interruptions in data or downtime for systems applications are simply not acceptable causalities to business operations and revenue. To risk information and application access with an IT infrastructure that doesn't provide around- the-clock operations is to risk an organization's reputation. Double-Take allows companies to save data, revenue and even jobs as a result of the software's replication and failover technology."

Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware
"Double-Take's Solutions for VMware infrastructure is designed to reduce the administrative workload on IT and datacenter professionals. Providing integrated data protection for VMware vCloud® is an ideal way to leverage multi-tenancy and drive greater efficiencies by reducing complexities associated with business continuity."
