New SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux Version 9.6.2 Adds Support for the Latest Versions of Key Operating Systems and Azure Shared Disk

SAN MATEO, CA – September 26, 2022 SIOS Technology Corp., an industry leader in application high availability and disaster recovery, today announced the immediate availability of SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version 9.6.2. The latest version of its award-winning clustering software provides support for recent operating system upgrades and Azure Shared Disk.

SIOS 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 high availability, disaster protection and optimal application performance. With SIOS 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.

“These enhancements reflect that SIOS continues to stay on the forefront of HA/DR as IT infrastructures have evolved from on-premises data centers into complex combinations of on-prem, cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments,” said Masahiro Arai, COO of SIOS Technology.

New Support for Azure Shared Disk

Standby Node Write Protection

LifeKeeper can now use the new Standby Node Health Check feature to lock the standby node against attempted writes to a protected shared storage device, protecting against data corruption that can result from loss of network connection between cluster nodes.

LifeKeeper Load Balancer Health Check Application Recovery Kit (ARK)
