Scale Computing and DoubleTake

Today we’re announcing that we’ve entered into a partnership with Vision Solutions DoubleTake. This has got me excited for several different reasons. In meeting with our customers, it becomes more evident that there is still a great deal of physical environments that need to be virtualized. Despite recent data, there are still a large number of organizations that are running on physical servers. The complexity around moving from physical to virtual (P2V) is still a reality, and some businesses can’t afford the downtime or risks around moving, or simply don’t have the skills or resources.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we find many organizations at a significant percentage of a virtualized environment, but wanting to move away from either VMware or Microsoft because of complexity and expensive licensing features. Today, organizations don’t have the time and/or resources to manage these kind of environments. Others are also now considering the cloud for backup, secondary storage etc. They are looking to eliminate some of hassle that comes along with managing a secondary environment, or simply don’t want to continue to invest in additional infrastructure. The challenge for them is to figure out how to get from their on premise environment to the cloud (V2C).

HC3 Move Powered by DoubleTake™ allows for organizations to eliminate the downtime and complexity of these transitions. For those organizations that are still on the fence as to whether they should virtualize, or continue to virtualize, this joint solution makes it much easier and seamless. For those who are considering a public cloud eg. AWS, this solution allows them to go from their primary HC3 environment to any public cloud service provider with near zero downtime and in production. For a more detailed scenario on how that happens, I’ll let you read @ctheriac’s blog. The bottom line is, HC3 together with DoubleTake, can enable a hybrid strategy of on premise environment and public cloud.

We’ve also come across many organizations today that require a higher level of availability when failing over to remote or secondary sites. Today, HC3 Availability Powered by DoubleTake™ allows organizations to not have to worry about their failover strategies that include a secondary datacenter/site. Even better, HC3 enables the performance required for DoubleTake to failover as quickly as possible, without losing data.

Organizations today, can look to HC3 as their end-to-end solution for their virtual environment. Whether you’re moving from physical to virtual, virtual to virtual, or virtual to cloud, HC3 and DoubleTake can make it happen. Take a look at our solutions brief, or visit us at
