SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition Brings High Availability To Azure Enterprise Apps

By - Source: SIOS

SIOS Technology Corp. announced that SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition has been Microsoft Azure certified and is available from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition is the only Azure certified software of its kind, enabling customers to create a SIOS #SANLess cluster in Azure using Microsoft Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC).

"We are pleased that Microsoft has chosen to certify and include SIOS DataKeeper in the Azure Marketplace. By providing fast, convenient access to SIOS DataKeeper software, our Azure Marketplace offering enables customers to deploy their important applications such as SQL, SAP, and Oracle in Azure with the same high availability protection they have in traditional physical server environments," said Jerry Melnick, COO of SIOS Technology.

SIOS DataKeeper uses block-level replication to quickly transfer data across LANs and WANs with reduced bandwidth requirements, and without the need for additional acceleration or data compression hardware. SIOS DataKeeper has the ability to maintain real-time copies of data synchronized across multiple servers and data centers.

SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition provides host-based replication for Windows Server, with support for Windows Server versions 2008 R2, 2012 and 2012 R2 that integrate with Microsoft WSFC. DataKeeper Cluster Edition is used to protect mission-critical apps from data loss or downtime using SAN or SIOS #SANLess clusters.

SIOS #SANLess clusters are built using industry-standard hardware and local attached storage in a "shared-nothing" configuration. SIOS #SANLess clusters allow customers to utilize fast PCIe Flash and SSD storage for increased performance while eliminating the cost and single-point-of-failure risk of a SAN.

Microsoft Azure certification for SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition enables customers to mix and match platforms used in Microsoft WSFC, utilizing physical, virtual or hybrid cloud environments for comprehensive high availability protection.

SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition is available immediately.
