Double-Take Availability for Linux Version 4.7

Vision Solutions has today launched Double-Take Availability for Linux version 4.7, an information availability tool with new data protection and replication features for systems running in virtual or physical Linux environments. Using kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) support to allow Linux users all the advantages available from virtual machines, the new enhancements are intended to enable users to utilize the latest features available in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 operating platform.

To make it easier for users to protect and recover their systems running RHEL 6, a new Restoration Wizard has been included, which simplifies the restoration process and provides "online restore" capabilities. The granular restore feature is positioned for use in backup or data recovery scenarios when a subset of data needs to be restored.

New support for Novell SLES 10.3, 11.1 and Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5 adds product versatility for supporting virtual environments, scalable file systems, server restoration, and granular file recovery. There is also EXT4 file system support and XFS file system support to allow users to take advantage of Red Hat’s Scalable File System Add-On, which provides support for file systems that are between 16 terabytes and 100 terabytes in size.

Rob Beeler, vice president of research and development at Vision Solutions, said, "This latest release of the Double-Take suite further expands our ability to provide data protection in the Linux environment including kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) support. IT managers today are faced with ever-changing infrastructure requirements and we help them keep their workloads available and customers happy regardless of the technologies they choose."
