This version of its clustering software takes advantage of security updates and application support critical to ensuring application HA in customer infrastructures.
LifeKeeper for Linux lets IT managers run their business-critical applications in a flexible, scalable cloud environment, such as Microsoft Azure or AWS EC2, while maintaining HA, disaster protection and application performance. With LifeKeeper for Linux clustering software, customers can create a SANless cluster that uses only local storage, delivering cluster protection in cloud environments where shared storage solutions are impractical or impossible.
“SIOS continues to advance its high availability clustering software to provide customers with the highest levels of IT resilience for their most critical applications,” said Masahiro Arai, COO.
