Vision Solutions' Double-Take Move Key Driver of the Next Wave of Virtualization, Helping Businesses Utilize Benefits of Microsoft Azure Through Near-Zero Downtime Migrations to the Cloud

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Vision Solutions, Inc., a leader in disaster recovery, high availability and migration solutions for cloud service providers, is the driving force behind the virtualization trend of migrating from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Microsoft Azure as more businesses realize the significant value of migrating their business-critical data to be hosted on Microsoft's cloud offering.

Future predictions show Microsoft will gain considerable market share as companies understand the viable alternative and business benefit with Microsoft Azure. In recent months, a wave of migrations have demonstrated companies' desire to move from AWS and VMware in order to utilize the enhanced capabilities of Microsoft's Azure as well as Hyper-V platforms. Vision Solutions' Double-Take Move provides easy, no-risk, near-zero downtime migrations to and from any environment or platform, allowing users and applications to remain productive while undergoing the migration process. Double-Take Move eliminates inefficiencies from offline activity during a migration from any source environment to Microsoft platforms, enabling a smooth transition as companies consider their future business needs in the cloud.

"Vision Solutions has been and continues to be a key Microsoft partner enabling near zero downtime migrations to Hyper-V and Microsoft Azure from VMware and AWS," said Bob Ellsworth, Worldwide Director of Platform Modernization. "Their solution means more companies can now take advantage of the best-in-class capabilities of Azure for their compute, network and storage needs and for this accomplishment, we are proud to recognize Vision Solutions with the Platform Modernization Technical Innovation award."

On July 13, 2014, Vision Solutions Double-Take Move's near-zero downtime and seamless migration process earned Microsoft's Platform Modernization Alliance Technology Innovation Award as part of the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, D.C. The award honors Microsoft partners for delivering innovative solutions that directly address customer challenges.

"By driving innovation that reinforces developing priorities for Microsoft, Vision Solutions has nurtured a strong partnership to support user adoption," said Bob Johnson, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Vision Solutions. "Microsoft and Vision Solutions are equally committed to bringing the finest tools to their customers to make business continuity and migrations easier, smarter and faster."
