Vision Solutions, Inc., the world's leading provider of information availability software and services, announced today that Commerzbank AG, Prague Branch, is using Double-Take Availability as part of its business continuity strategy for its electronic banking servers.

Commerzbank is one of Germany's largest banking institutions with branches across Europe. Based on Double-Take, Commerzbank in Prague now benefits from real-time data replication for its critical servers that support customers accessing their account information and managing transactions.

Commerzbank now has a full business continuity solution in place using Double-Take Availability alongside the bank's existing virtual data centre, which is based on VMware vSphere and IBM server hardware. With Double-Take Availability, information from the bank's critical applications is replicated across to a secondary location for disaster recovery purposes.

Quote:
Alan Arnold, Chief Technology Officer, Vision Solutions: "For organisations in the banking sector, offering online services for account management provides customers with a useful service and gives them greater control over their finances. However, the IT systems that support this require a full business continuity plan so that customers are not inconvenienced at any time. Double-Take Availability provides real-time replication for the bank's critical servers, ensuring that all data is protected and that these systems can be up and running instantly at the bank's disaster recovery site in the unlikely case of a failure event affecting production machines."

Vladimír Sechter, Assistant Manager, Commerzbank: "We view the Double-Take solution as a good choice for the protection of our servers. It facilitates truly efficient backup, not only for our data, but also its real-time development, and lastly guarantees the uninterrupted operation of our client systems."
