Vision Solutions, Inc., the world's leading provider of information availability software and services for Windows, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Virtual Cloud Computing markets, today announced it is expanding its network of Microsoft-focused partners worldwide, having recruited more than 80 established IT distributors and value-added partners across the globe over the past three months.

Vision Solutions is proud to be a sponsor at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, where resellers and distributors will be able to learn how partnering with Vision Solutions can provide them with opportunities to expand their range of services around business continuity, sell more effective disaster recovery solutions and increase profits. Working together, Vision Solutions and Microsoft provide partners with technologies for business continuity and disaster recovery, as well as ways to migrate existing and new customers across homogeneous and heterogeneous platforms.

Vision Solutions' partner programs allow distributors and resellers to access award-winning products, experts and services designed to make it easier to provide customers with business continuity and disaster recovery solutions. Vision Solutions also offers technical training, marketing and support services that ensure partners are successful in selling solutions based on the Double-Take, MIMIX and iTERA products.

Vision Solutions provides a suite of solutions and services covering the following customer requirements:

  • High Availability - when customers have critical applications running in physical, virtual or clustered environments that can't be allowed to fail, Vision Solutions products deliver non-stop business continuity and can boost productivity. Vision Solutions' innovative, easy to use switching and real-time replication solutions eliminate costly IT downtime.
  • Disaster Recovery - for customers that want to protect critical information and recover lost data, Vision Solutions provides solutions that can get businesses back up and running in a fraction of the time traditional tape backup solutions require. The company provides affordable, automated solutions that deliver the power of continuous data protection and the flexibility of in-house or hosted recovery options.
  • Data Management - Vision Solutions products allow customers to manage, move and share data with unprecedented ease and efficiency. These powerful yet flexible solutions let businesses unlock the maximum business value of their data.
  • Systems Management - Vision Solutions can accelerate the performance of IT and information assets while significantly reducing labor, complexity and daily administration. With Vision Solutions, customers can get more out of the systems that keep their businesses moving forward.
  • Double-Take Training and Certification - for companies seeking advanced skills and certification through eLearning and instructor-led courses. IT professionals can take their Double-Take skills further with Professional or Expert level certification around the company's data replication and data protection solutions.

Vision Solutions' depth of expertise in the area of protecting Microsoft Hyper-V is particularly noteworthy. Vision's Double-Take products were some of the first to provide efficient and affordable real-time protection and migration capabilities for virtualized environments.
