SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, today announced the ExpressCluster X LAN Edition supporting both Linux® and Microsoft® Windows®. ExpressCluster X is NEC’s next-generation family of integrated application and disaster recovery software designed to empower businesses and organizations with high availability solutions for applications and data that need to be up and running 24 hours a day.

NEC ExpressCluster X LAN’s broad-based application and operating system support enables a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for high availability solutions. In addition, support of software-based transactional data mirroring eliminates the need for proprietary storage hardware systems, which further lowers TCO.

NEC’s ExpressCluster X LAN boasts:

  • Web-based management of either standardized or heterogeneous environments for easy, remote administration and increased productivity;

  • granular levels of resource control enabling a reduction in planned downtime;

  • enhanced data mirroring for faster, easier and lower cost system configurations;

  • reduced cluster partition requirements with flexible partition placement for reduced solution deployment overhead;

  • synchronous data mirroring with write order preservation and incremental synchronization to support fast data synchronization; and

  • enhanced application support, including Microsoft Windows Exchange Standard Edition.

"Virtualization and consolidation are accelerating in the marketplace, but many businesses haven't yet faced challenges of unplanned downtime for applications running in a virtualized environment," said Jean Bozman, research vice president, IDC. "NEC's ExpressCluster X LAN, with its built-in cluster-enablement and integrated management for a broad base of ISV applications, provides a high availability (HA) software solution that reduces the need for custom scripting to protect production ISV applications, addressing customers' operational costs."NEC Corp.
