The companies target enterprises where continuous availability of business and production services is critical.
Stratus Technologies and Double-Take Software announced April 3 that they have released a new set of disaster recovery services that will help enterprises to protect and recover important business applications from outages, natural disasters and other troublesome events.
Double-Take's recovery software integrates real-time replication and failover technologies. The new services from Stratus and Double-Take target enterprises where continuous availability of business and production services is critical, such as in the banking and financial services, public safety, manufacturing and health care industries.
"These are services that are intended to address business challenges such as improving performance and sustaining competitive advantage; protecting the integrity of critical business information and operations; reducing complexity of operations management; and improving the effectiveness of business information systems," Mike Everett, services product marketing manager for Maynard, Mass.-based Stratus, told eWEEK.
The new disaster recovery services feature real-time data replication and failover for Windows Advanced Server Edition, which is data protection software that continuously replicates over any shared IP-based LAN or WAN.
