Fact Sheet: Education High Availability

PROTECTING SYSTEMS FROM DOWNTIME AND DATA LOSS

From school management systems, to CRMs, to student information systems, today’s
schools and colleges are more reliant on IT systems than ever. SIOS Technology makes
high availability clustering and replication software that protect essential applications and
databases from downtime and disasters – ensuring students and educators have access
to the systems they need.

Meet Availability SLAs and RTO/RPOs with Ease

SIOS gives you the flexibility to build SAN and SANless clusters for Windows or Linux environments on physical servers, virtualized servers and in the cloud. You can use SIOS software to achieve high availability or disaster tolerance. Easily move Windows Server Failover Clustering to the cloud without disruption or easily build a Linux clustering environment with application-specific intelligence built-in. In the cloud, you can configure clusters across availability zones or regions for maximum HA/DR protection or create hybrid cloud or multicloud configurations to meet availability SLAs and RTO/RPOs with ease.

High Availability SIOS Products

SIOS DataKeeper

Add SIOS DataKeeper to a Windows Server Failover Clustering environment to create a SANless cluster where traditional shared storage clusters are impossible or impractical, such as cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Fast, efficient host-based replication synchronizes local storage on all cluster nodes for maximum configuration flexibility. Or, add replication to your existing SAN-based Windows cluster for DR.

Use SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition software to protect your essential Windows applications and systems and the databases they run on, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, in a physical, virtual, or cloud environment.

  • Configuration Flexibility – Protect all server workloads. Replicate within a single site or across data centers.
  • Cost-Savings – Advanced clustering without costly application upgrades (e.g. SQL Server Enterprise Edition)
  • Reduce Complexity – Migrate on-prem WSFC to cloud without disruption

SIOS Protection Suite

SIOS Protection Suite for Linux lets you run your essential applications on-premises or in a flexible, scalable cloud environment, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure without sacrificing performance or HA/DR protection. SIOS clusters uniquely failover across cloud regions or availability zones for true HA protection.

SIOS Protection Suite includes powerful Application Recovery Kits for various applications and databases that automate manual tasks, monitor the entire application stack, and ensure failovers maintain application-specific best practices.

  • Advanced Automation – Auto-validated user input eliminates the need for costly, specialized skills and the risk inherent in manual scripting to configure and manage a cluster in complex environments
  • Deep application monitoring – Monitors the entire application environment
  • Application-aware automated failover – maintains compliance with application best practices for reliable failovers without surprises.
