SIOS Technology Corp., maker of SAN and SANLess clustering software products, announced that its SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition software is Microsoft Azure certified and available in the Azure marketplace.
The SIOS offering is the only Azure certified software that enables customers to create a SANLess HA cluster in Azure using Windows Server Failover Clustering.
By adding SIOS DataKeeper software to Windows Server Failover Clustering, customers can help protect business-critical Windows environments from downtime and data loss in a cloud or a combination of physical, virtual, or hybrid cloud environment. Now, applications depending on SAN-based Windows server failover clusters for protection can be moved to Azure and achieve the more comprehensive HA protection.
“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 HA protection they have in traditional physical server environments,” said Jerry Melnick, COO, SIOS.
“Products like SIOS DataKeeper are pivotal in the cloud transformation,” said Vibhor Kapoor, director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure. “By providing the essential HA protection for critical applications that enterprise, need, SIOS and Azure are enabling customers to take their journey to the cloud with confidence.”
Along with its Azure Marketplace offering, SIOS provides an informative, step-by-step guide to creating a HA failover cluster to protect SQL Server in Azure IaaS written by Microsoft MVP, David Bermingham.
