Cayan™ Protects Business Critical Applications, Enjoys High Availability Protection And Disaster Protection with SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition
Cayan™ is the leading provider of payment technologies that give businesses a competitive advantage.
When Cayan decided to move to a larger, state-of-the-art data center, they looked for an affordable, easy-to-deploy way to provide high availability protection and disaster protection for the SQL Server database. Their Genius platform and other important applications run on SQL Server database.
Cayan IT staff decided to use SIOS #SANLess clusters. They built two-node clusters using standard Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC). Next, they simply added SIOS DataKeeper™ Cluster Edition software as an ingredient. The SIOS software uses efficient, real time replication to synchronize local storage in the primary and remote cluster nodes. This made them appear to WSFC as a virtual SAN.
SIOS software has very intuitive configuration wizards. This enabled Cayan to deploy our platform and applications in the SANless clusters quickly and easily,
The SIOS software provided the protection Cayan needed to protect its important Windows applications. All these without the cost or performance impediments of a SAN. Since deploying their SANless clusters, Cayan has not experienced any downtime or data loss, and continues to enjoy high availability protection.
