Leader in continuous data protection and application availability working with dynamic DNS pioneer to safeguard critical revenue-generating applications
Southborough, Mass. – January 3, 2005 -NSI Software, Inc. (NSI®), makers of Double-Take®, the most relied upon solution for continuous data protection and application availability, and TZOlkin Corporation today announced a partnership to deliver a turnkey solution for high availability of critical revenue-producing applications for small and mid-sized businesses. Through this partnership, TZO® becomes a member of the Double-Take Solutions Program.
With an intuitive interface and a hardware-agnostic configuration, Double-Take provides businesses with the advanced protection they need, in the easy-to-use format they require. Now businesses who rely on Double-Take to provide continuous data protection for application and information availability can achieve greater resiliency for those applications that rely on public network access, like e-mail and web servers, with little to no manual intervention. As such, businesses can rest assured that public-facing, revenue-generating Web applications such as e-commerce sites and partner Intranets will be online and seamlessly protected in the event of a disaster or outage.
“Together, Double-Take and TZO-HA create a powerful solution with significant business value,” said Dan Jones, vice-president of North American sales and marketing with NSI Software. “Information and assets are protected while business operations remain uninterrupted in the event of a disaster or unplanned outage. This is a win-win for small and mid-sized businesses.”
“In today’s demanding Web-based environments, it’s critical for businesses to be certain that their data is safe and they can remain ‘open for business’ for their online customers. This is a huge challenge for businesses with limited IT budgets and operations,” said Eric McIntyre, vice-president of business development with TZO. “By working with Double-Take, we can offer all of our customers a single solution that provides both of these critical certainties.”
Double-Take and TZO-HA combine for flexible, rock solid continuous data protection that fits within any business infrastructure:
--Double-Take automatically replicates all data from the SQL, Exchange servers and Web servers over a WAN connection to a secondary server located at another geographic location-at any distance-such as another office location or a co-location facility.
--If a failure occurs, Double-Take will start the remote services at the remote location and make changes to the Active Directory environment to tell clients how and where to access the new assets by name and IP address.
-- While this process is happening within the customer’s private network, TZO-HA automatically fails over from primary to secondary server by instantly changing DNS definitions on the public network, with full public Internet propagation completed in less than 90 seconds. Users seeking applications on the affected Web-sites or intranet will be automatically forwarded to the available location to access the data replicated on the new target servers.
