Kenso Chooses Double-Take® Software for Real-Time Replication and Maintaining Application Availability

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) -  Double-Take® Software (NASDAQ: DBTK) announced that it provided disaster recovery and high availability solutions to Kenso, a leading agrochemicals and fertilizers manufacturing and distribution company. The solution will protect Kenso's Microsoft Exchange and Oracle server databases with real-time replication to provide high availability and rapid disaster recovery.

With the patented replication and failover technologies, Double-Take® Availability is helping Kenso to replicate files from Exchange and Oracle servers to a standby server at a disaster recovery site in real time. In case of failure, Double-Take Availability's failover feature will allow Kenso to access their emails and databases from the standby server. This ensures Kenso's business continuity so as to improve its customer service and capabilities, while generating higher profits.

"We chose Double-Take Software because it is a flexible, affordable solution with lots of good features such as application failover and simple disaster recovery testing procedures; it also provides faster recovery and minimum downtime," Kenso's Head of IT, Eric Kwan said. "I am very satisfied with Double-Take Availability and would recommend their solutions to my peers," he continued. Double-Take Software won this bid over other major suppliers such as EMC, Symantec and Acronis.

Raymond Goh, systems engineer at Double-Take Software, said, "Double-Take Availability works in the Kenso environment by capturing changes to files on the source volumes, then transmitting the changes to the target server at the disaster recovery site. This approach is both application and hardware independent. In addition, Double-Take Availability only copies the bytes changed for each write request which minimize the network bandwidth demand."
