SIOS Technology Corp. announced that it is a Google Cloud Partner, enabling the accelerated delivery of HA SQL Server clusters and other business-critical applications in the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Google has also recognized the SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition as a HA clustering solution for GCP. DataKeeper enables Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) environments to protect applications in GCP. SIOS lets organizations run their important applications in GCP without sacrificing the HA and disaster protection they have come to expect from failover clustering.

Organizations are often prevented from moving their business critical applications, such as SQL Server, to public cloud environments where shared storage - a prerequisite for failover clustering - is not available. By adding DataKeeper Cluster Edition to a WSFC environment, companies can create a HA SANless cluster, eliminating the need for shared (SAN) storage and enabling customers to capitalize on the benefits of GCP. Companies can use DataKeeper with SQL Server Standard Edition to create a SQL HA cluster without the cost of enterprise edition licensing.

"SIOS DataKeeper is filling a need for HA failover clustering in the cloud where customers are looking to use the same protection technologies they employ in their on-premises environments," said Jerry Melnick, president and CEO, SIOS. "Our partnership with GCP further reflects SIOS DataKeeper's position as the go-to solution for companies looking to take advantage of the efficiencies afforded by cloud computing while maintaining configuration flexibility."

DataKeeper synchronizes local storage in each cluster node in real time using efficient block level replication to create a SANless cluster that appears to WSFC as shared storage. It provides the flexibility to configure clusters across physical, virtual and cloud environments, freeing IT to drive additional value to the business.
