Latest Version of Double-Take Share Delivers Support for Microsoft(R) SQL Server(R) 2012 and Performance Enhancements for IBM i and Teradata
IRVINE, CA–(Marketwire – March 20, 2013) – Vision Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of Cloud Protection and Recovery, High Availability and Disaster Recovery, and Migration and Cross-Platform Data Sharing solutions, today announced the release of Double-Take Share® 5.1. Double-Take Share provides easy, on-demand data sharing among databases in real-time. The latest update, version 5.1, features enhanced support for Microsoft® SQL Server®, including support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012, increased performance when running in IBM i and Teradata environments, and support for additional versions of z/OS.
Many organizations, regardless of size, are held back by a data nightmare — multiple databases, incompatible applications and mismatched platforms — all of which lead to decreased productivity. Double-Take Share enables organizations to break through the barriers that lock data in hardware, operating systems, database or application platforms, with a simple, automated tool that enables real-time data sharing between disparate databases, ultimately leading to increased productivity and profitability.
Key Features of Double-Take Share 5.1 include:
Enhancements for Microsoft SQL Server environments provide support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 as both a source and target database, enabling users to move data to or from Microsoft’s flagship database management system. Replication of XML data is provided in homogeneous Microsoft SQL Server environments, even between different versions of SQL Server, and support for multiple metabases in SQL Server environments provides additional flexibility for organizations employing multiple data models.
Enhancements for IBM i provide higher performance, allowing more transactions to be replicated with lower system resource utilization. Support has also been added for *MAXOPT3 receiver size option for IBM i customers to lower their maintenance and operational overhead by allowing the receiver to be the reset less frequently.
Additional performance and platform support enhancements have been made to yield better replication performance in Teradata environments as well as support for IBM z/OS 1.12 and z/OS 1.13.
Double-Take Share 5.1 is part of Vision’s Migration and Cross-Platform Data Sharing solution family.
Alan Arnold, executive vice president and chief technology officer with Vision Solutions:
“Companies turn to Double-Take Share to simplify data integration, automate data sharing and eliminate the time-consuming manual processes that can tie up productivity. Because Double-Take Share requires no programming, customers often realize an immediate return on investment via increased productivity and profitability. With Double-Take Share 5.1′s enhanced Microsoft SQL Server support and IBM i performance improvements, real-time data sharing between databases has never been easier.”
Marc Staimer, president and CDS of Dragon Slayer Consulting:
“Effectively exchanging data between and among database enterprise applications is difficult and problematic. That difficulty increases geometrically when those databases are from different vendors. Vision Solutions’ Double-Take Share 5.1 transforms this problem into a simple process with database sharing that is analogous to the straightforwardness of ordinary file sync and share.”
