How it works

Double-Take DR replicates critical applications, data and entire server images to a repository server for easy recovery to any physical, virtual or cloud server. Multiple production servers can be replicated to a single repository server located on-premises, off-site or in the cloud. In the event of an outage, the selected data can be recovered from the repository to its original location or to a different server located anywhere on any platform. Double-Take DR enables disaster recovery testing without impacting production server performance and protection, allowing you to verify new and existing SLAs on your schedule.

At the core of Double-Take DR is patented Double-Take real-time replication technology that captures changes across any distance and between any server hardware and storage. Platform independence reduces the total cost of the solution by integrating into your business' existing IT infrastructure. Byte-level replication combined with compressing and bandwidth throttling capabilities enable replication across existing LAN/WAN infrastructure, without requiring dedicated networking resources or additional hardware purchases, keeping total solution costs low.
