The agreement comes at time when many DSS customers have expressed interest in implementing a high availability solution to protect their data networks and applications. The alliance will enable DSS customers, primarily in the entertainment, public utilities, retail, banking and healthcare industries, protect their critical applications through any faults, failures and disasters.
“We continue to strive to partner with industry leading providers that understand our customers’ requirements, challenges and technology goals,” said Mike Duhaime, Director of Storage Sales at DSS. “Integrating everRun into our proven line of IT solutions enables us to implement and support the most appropriate level of high availability for our customers’ critical environments. We look forward to offering Marathon’s solutions to our growing customer base.”
Marathon’s everRun line of fault tolerant-class availability products protects Microsoft Windows applications from leading sources of downtime while eliminating the need for costly and complex failover processes, specialized applications, or proprietary server hardware. Turnkey, automation, and simplicity are the cornerstones of the everRun line, which uses embedded intelligent policy management to resolve faults and failures. The primary benefit to the end user is that they are protecting their business by ensuring continuity of operations – simply, at low cost and with complete confidence.
I love clusters, I love Oracle RAC, I really love how VMware has thrown the HA and DRS on everyone's face. The people at Marathon are exceptional, I have spoken to (via email) few and was impressed with the work they do there. I found the videos cool as well.
Here's the press release!
