Double-Take Software Customer Canopius Short-listed For ‘Best Business Continuity Implementation’ At FST Awards
Worcester, UK – 18th March 2010 – Double-Take® Software (NASDAQ:DBTK) today announced that Canopius Managing Agents Limited (“Canopius”), the largest privately-owned Lloyd’s insurance underwriting business has been short-listed in the ‘Best Business Continuity Implementation’ category of the Financial Sector Technology Awards 2010 for its use of Double-Take® Software’s leading workload optimisation and recovery solutions. Canopius completed a storage infrastructure migration and business continuity project using Double-Take® Move and Double-Take® Availability, saving the company months on the time to migrate as well as total cost savings of around £180,000.
The project, designed by leading provider of data availability and business continuity solutions, CWL Systems, has provided Canopius with better protection against adverse events, as well as leading to a significant reduction in the time taken to recover and protect the company’s critical IT systems.
Ian Masters, UK sales director at Double-Take® Software, commented, “The ability to migrate full system workloads independently of the underlying server, storage or virtualisation platform has a lot to offer organisations when it comes to business continuity, providing them with a simpler way to achieve their recovery objectives and protect their critical data. We are very pleased that Canopius has been short-listed for this award, as it recognises the significant results that the company has delivered based on Double-Take® Software.”
Brent Gebbie, Infrastructure Manager at Canopius, said, “Our implementation of Double-Take® Software has proven to be a great success. We are delighted to be short-listed for this award.”
