IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 -- Vision Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of replication, availability and disaster recovery software and services, announced today the launch of the company's new Cloud Protection & Recovery (CP&R) offering. The new solution, based on the company's trusted Double-Take® and MIMIX® products, enables cloud service providers to accelerate their cloud businesses by offering their customers Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS), while taking advantage of the simplicity of pay-per-use pricing. Vision's CP&R offering also allows IT professionals an affordable, low-risk path to the cloud.
The new cloud offering positions Vision Solutions as a premier provider of Cloud Protection & Recovery, High Availability/Disaster Recovery and Migration/Cross-Platform Data Sharing solutions that enable businesses of all sizes, from SMB to enterprise, to affordably and efficiently protect their data, applications and servers.
According to Gartner, "the key attributes of cloud computing -- service-based, scalable and elastic, shared, metered by use and Internet-based -- deliver a strong alternative to more inflexible and expensive traditional disaster recovery services and may even be a superior alternative to an in-house self-managed approach. As a result, Gartner expects RaaS to continue to grow as a logical extension to cloud infrastructure services." It estimates that "worldwide recovery as a service (RaaS) spending in 2012 was $465.7 million, and that the market will grow to $1.2 billion by 2017, a CAGR of 21%."*

This product is built on Double-Take's real-time replication technology. •Metered Usage - Double-Take and MIMIX Metered Usage allow cloud providers to consume licenses of Vision Solutions' Disaster Recovery, Migration and High Availability solutions in a pay-as-you-go fashion.
