To simplify and accelerate the deployment of high availability SQL Server clusters in the cloud, SIOS DataKeeper™ Cluster Edition product is available on AWS Marketplace and can be deployed automatically using an AWS Quick Start. The AWS Quick Start deployment is ideal for organizations making their first venture into high availability clusters in the cloud.
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition is the first high availability and disaster recovery solution to combine fully automated, application-centric clustering and efficient data replication. Seamless integration into Windows Server Failover Clustering environments, enable high availability clusters to work in a cloud where shared storage is not possible.
