Vision Solutions Joins System Center Alliance and Works to Streamline Data Protection

Alliance Supports Developing Software That Builds on Microsoft's Systems Management Product

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - Vision Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of information availability software and services for Windows Server, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Cloud Computing markets, today announced that it has joined Microsoft Corp.'s System Center Alliance -- a community of technology providers that develop and deliver solutions that extend the management capabilities of System Center to Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications and platforms.

Microsoft's System Center management product automates common management tasks and includes components to detect, diagnose, and correct problems in the IT infrastructure. By joining the Microsoft System Center Alliance, Vision extends its long-standing Gold Certified partner status with Microsoft and extends its commitment to engineer products that bring new functionality to Microsoft's IT management product.

Microsoft Systems Center provides customers with a suite of products that help reduce overall IT management costs, improve application availability and enhance service delivery. Vision Solutions' products provide high-availability and disaster recovery for critical data and applications running on most mainstream business computing platforms including Microsoft Windows. This allows customers to protect critical Microsoft applications such as SQL Server, SharePoint and Exchange, as well as Windows Server Hyper-V virtual machines.

"Many of our customers depend on System Center to help them efficiently manage their IT environments. It's always been important to us that our customers get the greatest ROI out of our software and the hardware they use for business-critical applications," according to Doug Piper, vice president of product strategy for Vision Solutions. "The System Center Alliance enables us to provide the most comprehensive high availability and disaster recovery for physical and virtual servers on Windows Server."

"By combining our unique strengths, Microsoft Corp. and Vision Solutions together provide customers with the management capabilities of System Center to Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications and platforms," says Sergio Klarreich, Director Strategic Alliances, Management and Security Division, Microsoft Corp. "Our relationship with Vision Solutions, a Gold Certified partner, continues to grow and we look forward to increased collaboration in the years to come."

Current submissions to the Alliance include the Double-Take Availability Management Pack, which integrates with Microsoft Systems Center by monitoring Double-Take alerts for operations such as performance threshold violations, performance monitoring, server states, and Double-Take events. Another submission is the Double-Take Availability PRO Tip. This feature detects if a detects if a failover condition has been met for virtual machines, monitors failover conditions and delivers PRO Tips within the Virtual Machine Monitor. Double-Take Availability with the System Center Operations Manager Management Pack and PRO Tip integration is a powerful combination that enables system administrators to better monitor their physical, virtual and Cloud systems.
