Epicure Protects Business Critical SQL Server, Provides High Availability And Disaster Protection With Amazon EC2 And SIOS #SANLess Clustering Software
Epicure needed a solution to provide High Availability and Disaster Protection for their two websites. Both of which are highly critical to their business operations.
The websites run on a single server using two instances of SQL Server Standard Edition—one for each website. As the company expanded its products and services, the Epicure IT department needed an update. It had to ensure both of its business-critical websites would continue to operate in the event of failures or disasters. They decided to move both websites from a third-party hosted facility to its on-premises data center. Also, to use Amazon Web Services EC2 cloud for disaster protection and recovery.
As part of this website update process, Epicure IT staff wanted something efficient and cost effective. A solution that can provide high availability and disaster protection for both websites. And at the same time, continuing to run them on two instances of SQL Server Standard Edition.
The SIOS software was a fit for Epicure. SIOS was an easy, cost-efficient way to provide High Availability and disaster protection and recovery for its business-critical SQL Server applications. All without the cost and complexity of building out a remote DR site or purchasing costly SAN storage or SQL Server Enterprise Edition licenses.
