Double-take Availability

Anyone have experience with this product?

Putting together a business continuity plan for a customer and thinking about this product. There is a telco/ISP datacenter in the clients building we may use - multihomed net connections, generators, etc., so the plan is to run fibre between the client and the datacenter, put a server in their location and use Double-take to replicate a couple of servers including Exchange 2010 to VM's on the colocated server.

Comments?

A friend of mine uses it for the company he works for in Metairie. I'll ask him about it tomorrow. I don't think it's too difficult to configure and such.

We use DT on most of our remote locations to synch with corp NAS.

We've been using it for several years now and it is excellent.

Thanks for the info. It burns me that I can't find any pricing. I hate companies that do that - I need to know what ballpark we're in before I waste any more time. List price is fine, just give me an idea.

Unless things have changed that much in the last few years (2008, I think), Double-Take's software was about 8k per license and you're going to need two licenses in most cases.

CA XOsoft was about a third of the price and met our needs easily.

A thread from this forum on my experience (not much detail): »Real-Time Data Mirroring (NO VSS!)

Disclosure: I left the company about 6 months after we implemented XOsoft so I don't know if anything went south.
