SIOS DataKeeper software is an important ingredient in your cluster solution that lets you add disaster recovery protection to your Windows cluster or to create a SANless cluster for complete failover protection in environments where shared storage clusters are impossible or impractical, such as cloud, virtual servers, and high-performance storage environments. Clusters built with SIOS software protect applications and data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments and provide enterprise-class protection for all server workloads at a fraction of the cost of array-based replication.
SIOS DataKeeper uses fast, efficient, block-level replication to transfer data across both local and wide area networks with minimal bandwidth. It delivers incredibly fast replication speeds without the need for additional hardware accelerators or compression devices.
SIOS DataKeeper Standard Edition
SIOS DataKeeper Standard Edition is a lightweight, host-based solution that minimizes the performance impact of replication on your application servers and network. It keeps real-time copies of data synchronized across multiple servers and data centers for fast, efficient disaster recovery.
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition is a performance-optimized host-based replication solution for Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2 that integrates seamlessly with Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC). SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition lets you protect your business-critical Windows environments, including Microsoft SQL Server, SAP, SharePoint, Lync, Dynamics, and Hyper-V from downtime and data loss using a SAN or SANless cluster in a physical, virtual, or cloud environment.
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition lets you build a cluster using your choice of industry-standard hardware and locally attached storage in a “shared-nothing” or SANless configuration. It keeps all storage synchronized, giving the standby servers in your cluster immediate access to your most current data in the event of a failover. SIOS SANless clusters not only eliminate the cost, complexity, and single-point-of-failure risk of a SAN, they also enable you to leverage the latest in fast PCIe Flash and SSD storage for performance and protection in a single cost-efficient solution.
Protecting Applications and Data in the Cloud
SIOS DataKeeper lets you run your business-critical applications in a flexible, scalable cloud environment, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Services without sacrificing performance, high availability or disaster protection. SIOS DataKeeper provides highly efficient, real-time replication and failover in cloud environments and lets you failover application instances across availability zones for protection from local, area, and regional disasters.
Innovative Performance Tuning
SIOS DataKeeper features an innovative tuning capability with an intuitive interface that lets you balance network bandwidth and CPU utilization for each application to best meet your requirements and business objectives.
If fast replication is critical, SIOS DataKeeper can achieve more than 90 percent bandwidth utilization to accelerate data synchronization. If minimizing network impact is your top priority, SIOS DataKeeper offers integrated compression and bandwidth throttling.
SIOS DataKeeper’s Target Snapshots feature gives you point-in-time access to run reports from a secondary node, offloading workloads that can decrease the performance of the primary node. It enables your primary node to deliver better performance while giving you faster queries, better resource utilization, and a more satisfying end-user experience.
Complete Data Protection
Unlike file replication technologies, SIOS DataKeeper’s block-level replication engine efficiently and completely replicates all data and critical metadata information, including data access permissions. It also easily replicates encrypted files, open files and other formats that challenge file-level replication solutions.
