Any disaster recovery solution can be handled by doubletake as well as server migrations. We have performed virtual to virtual, physical to physical, virtual to physical and physical to virtual migrations. There is no other product that can perform a continuous replication process with these different scenarios.

I have yet been able to find a scenario where I found it to be less appropriate.

I really believe once the initial set up is complete, the portal offers an easy and concise way to review actions and progress during the replication process. It is easy to troubleshoot in the event issues occur.

We only use DT as a disaster recovery option currently so do not have an instance or scenario where it might be less appropriate.

Doubletake software was one of the best pieces of software I've used and saved me a load of time on conversions between a server and a virtual machine. I have nothing negative to state what-so-ever. Highly recommend this product.

Windows servers migration to the cloud, with minimum downtime and real-time data replication between source and target servers. Running any kind of workloads since a basic Web server to a SQL database server. Not recommended for cluster nodes migration.

I believe it would work well with continuous replication in a DR scenario with no time limits and having the ability to fail back is a bonus, but in a one off move the decision to restrict the time it can sync for has proven to be an issue for us.

Well suited for Windows, VMware and the like type of environments. Can be used for physical to physical, or physical to virtual. I probably would not go from virtual to physical environment, but I suppose it could be done if needed, depending on the situation.

Carbonite DoubleTake for Windows with operation systems later than 2003 works well.

For a lot of customers with windows operation system [older than] 2003, it doesn't work well. The doubletake agent crashes and for older versions, there is full support but on the customer side, it does not work well.

About Carbonite Availability

Carbonite Availability (formerly DoubleTake) migrates physical, virtual and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Availability creates a replica of the data, application, database or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.

Carbonite Availability™ software lets IT organizations maintain the highest availability of their Windows and Linux servers by preventing downtime and data loss. The software does this using a continuous replication mechanism that maintains a secondary copy without taxing the primary system or network bandwidth. With support for physical, virtual or cloud source systems or target environments, the Availability solution is a comprehensive replication option for organizations with mixed IT environments.
