SIOS LifeKeeper – High Availability for Linux

Enterprises running business-critical applications such as SAP, S/4 HANA, SQL Server, MaxDB and Oracle face a dilemma. Even brief periods of downtime for these complex workloads could have catastrophic consequences. But traditional HA clustering can be complex and costly. Moving to the cloud isn’t the answer as cloud availability SLAs only cover hardware. They can’t provide HA and DR for stateful applications without degrading performance in the cloud. Shared storage used in traditional on-premises clustering is not an option in some clouds and is too complex and costly in others to be practical. Many HA clustering solutions cannot fail over cloud regions and availability zones – limiting the level of disaster recovery they can provide. Open Source clustering isn’t the answer. It requires complex scripting and is prone to human error and failure. The manual steps required to ensure complex ERPs or databases failover can leave correctly. IT teams are hesitant to perform regular maintenance and failover testing.

SIOS has the Solution.

 SIOS LifeKeeper delivers high availability and disaster recovery that ensures systems, databases, and applications operate when and as needed.

  • Unique, application-aware recovery kits make creating and managing high availability clusters in complex environments such as SAP, S/4 HANA, SQL Server, MaxDB and Oracle straightforward and error-free.
  • Complete monitoring, unlike HA solutions that only monitor server operation, SIOS LifeKeeper monitors the application stack network, storage, OS, and application.
  • Advanced, application-aware technology automates configuration and validates inputs – enabling accurate configuration five times faster than open-source clustering software and ensuring failovers are reliable and maintaining application best practices.

In the cloud, SIOS clusters fail across regions and Availability Zones for maximum DR protection. For customers  who want to deploy multiple clusters, SIOS LIfeKeeper’s cloning feature allows you to create multiple identical clusters using consistent, predefined settings and integrated best practices. SIOS LIfeKeeper comes in a bundle called the SIOS Protection Suite that includes application-specific recovery kits and efficient replication for SANless clustering and DR. Get 99.99% availability and disaster protection for critical Windows or Linux workloads running on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid cloud environments.
