Vision Solutions' Double-Take® Move Helps Simplify Cloud OS Network Participants' Migration to the Microsoft Cloud Platform

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Vision Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of disaster recovery, high availability and migration software and services, helps Microsoft Cloud OS Network participants with their need for near-zero downtime migrations. Double-Take Move allows for easy, no-risk, near-zero downtime migrations of physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure to Microsoft Corp.'s Microsoft Cloud Platform. This resource friendly technology allows users and applications to remain productive during the migration process. Double-Take Move allows Cloud OS Network participants fast, simple and flexible migration capabilities.

"The Cloud OS Network is a worldwide group of more than 25 leading cloud service providers that have embraced our Cloud OS vision and will deliver hosted services built on the Microsoft Cloud platform, which includes Windows Server with Hyper-V, System Center, and the Windows Azure Pack," said Takeshi Numoto, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft. "Vision Solutions has created Double-Take Move to provide simple and flexible configuration and help Cloud OS Network participants migrate physical, virtual, and cloud workloads to enable public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions for their customers," said Numoto.

By migrating to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V and using Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 to manage their IT infrastructure, data centers can benefit both in simplicity and cost factors. The full migration lifecycle can be managed from Microsoft System Center with Double-Take Move running under the covers. Deep integration with System Center Orchestrator, System Center Virtual Machine Manager, and System Center Service Manager hides all the complexities and enables Microsoft System Center to discover, configure, and migrate live Windows virtual machines, in real-time, from other platforms to Windows Server with Hyper-V. The combination of Hyper-V with System Center Management is an extremely powerful and low-cost option.

Double-Take Move provides Microsoft Cloud OS Network participants and their customers with:

  • The ability to migrate any combination of physical, virtual, and cloud server workloads
  • Real-time replication from a single, intuitive user console
  • Near-zero downtime migration capabilities
  • Simple, flexible configuration
  • Anything-to-anything migrations
  • Microsoft System Center integration

"As a long time Microsoft collaborator, we are excited to provide our easy, no-risk migration technology to Cloud OS Network participants," said Alan Arnold, Executive Vice President and chief technology officer for Vision Solutions.

Customers working with Cloud OS Network participants can start to reap these benefits by using Double-Take Move to migrate their workloads from any physical server or hypervisor, on premises, offsite or in the cloud into Windows Azure. So whether customers need to move from a physical server to Windows Azure or from VMware to Windows Azure to reduce IT costs, Double-Take Move is a great tool to enable those migrations.
