IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - Vision Solutions, Inc., a provider of disaster recovery, high availability and data migration software and services, announced today its involvement in the Microsoft Azure Certified program for qualified third-party vendors. As one of the first businesses to participate in the program after its initial introduction, Microsoft selected Vision Solutions as a vendor to deliver migration and disaster recovery solutions within Microsoft Azure.

Launched at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference 2014, the certification creates an environment for customers to use third-party solutions directly within Azure while providing quality assurance that the application has been tested for readiness and compatibility with Azure. In this setting, customers can discover and deploy Vision Solutions products -- Double-Take Availability, Double-Take DR and Double-Take Move -- easily within the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

"Knowing that our solutions run directly within a cloud infrastructure that is global in its reach, reliable beyond the expectations of any customer, large or small, and trusted by enterprises is a huge advantage of this program," said Bob Johnson, vice president at Vision Solutions. "Not only is Azure gaining market share as it addresses the demand for cloud-delivered IT services, its stellar customer service speaks to a desire to innovate and to solve problems for users by being at the forefront of cloud. At Vision Solutions, we're equally committed to this idea, and we could not be more pleased to work so collaboratively in this new initiative."

Double-Take solutions migrate and protect critical business data across any platform, on any hardware or residing in any environment -- and back, if needed, for flexibility to adapt for any circumstance. With Vision Solutions, user workloads are quickly and seamlessly migrated, while ensuring the right data is properly transitioned. While onboarding onto Azure, migrations can occur and continue with real-time replication while systems are live.

"With the rise of apps and the explosion of devices, businesses are facing a proliferation of management and performance challenges. Cloud solutions like Double-Take Move and Double-Take DR deployed on Azure help developers rapidly deploy and manage applications," said Garth Fort, General Manager of Enterprise Partners, Microsoft. "With Vision Solutions, a trusted partner and recent recipient of our esteemed Partner Innovation Award, our customers can confidently and swiftly execute their migrations onto the cloud while their data is fully protected."

According to industry reports, many companies are moving to data storage environments hosted in the cloud as part of diversification and cost-saving IT strategies. With Double-Take Move and Double-Take DR available to new and existing Azure users, customers are equipped with solutions that are readily accessible within the application. This process removes barriers for companies that not only want to reap the benefits of the cloud, but want to be sure they are implementing business continuity best practices for sustained success.

The combination of Double-Take's competencies and the reliability and reach of Microsoft Azure provides customers a unique value proposition that extends the scope of their enterprise applications beyond the desktop.
