Sun Unveils New Cluster

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW - News), the creator of Solaris(TM), today announced the latest version of Solaris(TM) Cluster, Sun's premier business continuity and disaster recovery platform for the Solaris 10 OS. These enhancements support key reliability features of the Solaris 10 OS, making it even easier to use, further improving availability and providing greater flexibility. The new functions extend the reliability of the Solaris 10 OS to help keep databases, applications and services running 24/7 through routine maintenance, unplanned outages and even whole datacenter outages.

Solaris Cluster is high-availability cluster software used to improve the availability of databases, file sharing services, websites, or other applications running on the Solaris OS. Solaris Cluster uses redundant computers to protect against downtime, eliminating the server as a single point of failure. With the Geographic Edition, Clusters can be combined across unlimited distances to provide business continuity even in the event of a data center failure. Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle RAC offers enterprises increased manageability and availability for Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) deployments for both SPARC and x64 platforms.
