SIOS Joins Nutanix Partner Program to Deliver Higher Availability

Analyst Take: As customers expand their use of HCI systems, they have been extending its use to database applications that demand always-on high availability. While Nutanix delivers solid replication and traditional system protection, these apps need application availability. Application availability means the systems, database, and applications are managed in an integrated manner and can be recovered simply and simultaneously.

SIOS addresses high availability (HA) for both Linux (LifeKeeper) and Windows (DataKeeper) on Nutanix’s AHV environment without the need to deploy complex configurations. More importantly, it does it in a highly simplified manner. For those who have deployed traditional high availability solutions, they understand errors and misconfigurations can be common due to the complexity. This is especially true in dynamic environments where constant changes occur and staffing can be an issue.

Specifically for Linux, SIOS LifeKeeper offers comprehensive HA support across various distributions, including SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, Rocky Linux, and Windows Server. This is commonly used for business apps such as SAP, HANA, and SQL Server. For Microsoft SQL Server environments, SIOS DataKeeper is a block-level replication and management, for easier failover clustering without the need for complex configurations.

Welcome SIOS to Nutanix.
