Product Details

What is 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.

Carbonite Availability Features

  • Supported: Lightning Fast Recovery: Failover to your secondary site with minimal downtime with seconds-long recovery points
  • Supported: Streamlined Migration: Migrate from any hypervisor or cloud to any other, easily and with minimal downtime for users
  • Supported: Broad Platform Support: Replicate physical, virtual and cloud-based systems to any environment, locally or with one of our cloud service provider partners.
  • Supported: Self-Service Management: End-user control over configuration, monitoring, and failover through a self-service portal.
  • Supported: No Performance Impact: Protect all your workloads with continuous replication without impacting system performance.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Carbonite Availability is installed on primary systems and the secondary target and creates a replica of the primary system at the secondary location. The problem which we were working to counter is the system crash or failure. Carbonite Availability has helped to solve this problem in a very effective way. When a failure occurs, the backup secondary systems are triggred and they go live and DNS re-routes and voila everything is back to as it was a few minutes back. We use this to protect most of our critical data systems, helping in disaster management which is part of our risk mitigation plan or process

We are using DoubleTake Availability for Windows and Linux for our customers. We are a department for [creating] projects for customers and have a lot of projects with Carbonite DoubleTake. Most of our customers very satisfied with the product.

There are huge solutions we create for our customers to save the data when some disaster occurs so I think there is a lot business impact that we keep in mind every day and work to solve it.

We use doubletake in several different ways. We have customers that use doubletake availability for their DR solution. For others, we use doubletake for migrating their environments from their local site to the cloud, or to different locations around the world. In some instances, customers have virtual servers that need to sit on physical hardware. Doubletake has the ability to migrate the virtual server back to physical hardware with virtually no down time.

Carbonite DoubleTake has been used since years ago across the whole organization for customers’ on-premise servers migration to a virtual private cloud. It provides minimum downtime migration (only required for servers cut over) since it replicates customer data in real-time to the cloud, the agent installation doesn't require servers to reboot and can be done during working hours. Once the synchronization job is created, all changes on source server are replicated to target server. The product support when required (not often) is very responsive.

I work for the Australian distributor of DoubleTake. We sell the product to our partners and provide 1st and 2nd level support in ANZ. We also use DoubleTake as a migration tool to migrate customers' workloads to the cloud.

We are using DoubleTake (DT) as a disaster recovery option for replication to a series of virtual servers. Our IT department initiated the use for our entire company. It addresses the issue of access to our files and process in the event we lose access to any or all servers due to an unforeseen catastrophic event.

DoubleTake is being used by the IT department to migrate the workload from a number of deprecated systems to a new data centre site and new infrastructure. It addresses the movement of large volumes of data transparently and without impact to the business and allows a seamless switch over from one site to another (ninety miles apart).

We used doubletake to recover from a serious server crash (converting a working server into a virtual machine and applying it on a different server). It was certainly a life-saver and time-saver, and their support was right by our side from start to finish. Hands down, great product!
