Overall Satisfaction with Carbonite DoubleTake

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.
  • It migrates Windows servers well
  • It is easy to use
  • It has a great RPO
  • DoubleTake is more expensive than competing products
  • DoubleTake is more manual than competing products
  • Being agent-based at source can cause concern for customers migrating hundreds of servers
  • It has helped us to service our customers
  • It has helped us provide tools for re-sellers
  • It has allowed our customers to keep their critical apps running in the event of a disaster
It is better for critical apps than Veeam due to the lower RPO. Veeam is favoured by some customers due to it's attractive price point.

Zerto is a very strong product and is innovating continuously. I don't see so much of this from DoubleTake.
Migration/protection of physical servers.

Migration into Azure/AWS.

Less suitable for large numbers of VMs between hypervisors (as competing products can do this agentlessly).
