Double-Take Move Allows Users to Migrate With Virtually No Downtime to Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2012) - Vision Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of information availability software and services, will feature its Double-Take Move solution, which allows users to migrate to Microsoft's Cloud OS, which includes Windows Server 2012, Windows Azure, and System Center 2012, at the Microsoft Cloud OS Signature Event Series. Vision Solutions is a platinum sponsor of the event, which takes place in 16 North American cities starting September 5 and running through October 11.

Double-Take Move reduces migration downtime and complexity. The full migration lifecycle can be managed from Microsoft System Center 2012 with Double-Take Move running under the covers.

Most notably, Double-Take Move offers the following features:

  • Platform/hypervisor-independent migrations with virtually no downtime
  • Risk mitigation for cloud adoption
  • Real-time replication

Nicolaas Vlok, Chief Executive Officer, Vision Solutions
"Virtualizing your servers, or moving them to the cloud, may make business sense, but it can be a difficult process. Too often, companies must take users offline to synchronize data, and install applications, while hoping everything works on Monday morning, only to do it all over again the next weekend. Migrations can be expensive and scary. Double-Take Move automates the migration process, making it simple, fast, and with no downtime."
