SteelEye Adds Linux Clusters

LONDON -- SteelEye Technology, Inc., a leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for multi-vendor IT infrastructures, today announced SteelEye Protection Suite for Linux Multi-Site Cluster at Storage Expo 2008 in London. This solution extends SteelEyes leading business continuity technology for Linux environments by enabling organizations with shared-storage Linux clusters within a data center to leverage another off-site replicated node for disaster recovery. The unique product offering is ideal for Linux users looking to cost-effectively extend existing high-availability capabilities as well as for those instituting first-time high-availability clustering and disaster recovery technologies.

As the burden of enterprise data grows, heightened emphasis is placed on how to manage, store and, most importantly, secure that data. By adding additional node for disaster recovery, SteelEye is providing data protection whether the server is local or on another continent. It provides additional protection for unforeseen events as well as planned downtime, such as data center moves.

"SteelEye is addressing IT’s growing need for business continuity and disaster recovery for x86 servers running enterprise Linux applications and databases,” said Jean S. Bozman, Research Vice President, IDC. "By extending the reach of local Linux x86 server clusters via a WAN connection—and by replicating the data across a WAN—SteelEye is offering an all-in-one solution that leverages both its LifeKeeper and DataKeeper products."
