SIOS Holds Position as First Linux Player in the World to Achieve SAP High Availability Interface Certification
SAN MATEO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
SIOS Technology Corporation, a leading provider of high availability and
data protection software solutions for Linux and Windows, today
announced it was the first Linux high availability player in the world
to achieve SAP (News - Alert) Application Server High Availability (HA) Interface
Certification for its SteelEye® Protection Suite (SPS).
The HA-Interface Certification lets customers know that by using SIOS
SPS, they are deploying high availability protection designed and
certified to work with any SAP landscape. This equates to faster
installation, fewer issues, superior protection, full SAP support and
peace of mind that all components will work together seamlessly.
"SIOS worked closely with SAP's Linux Lab to achieve this first of its
kind high availability certification," said Scott Armour, COO at SIOS
Technology Corporation. "Our SteelEye software has been the innovative
leader in SAP HA protection for more than a decade; this certification
is the latest illustration of our close work with SAP to assure the best
SAP landscape availability while also delivering the added benefits of
integrated offerings and support."
SIOS' SPS integrates with SAP to bring best-practice business continuity
to SAP Business Suite software customers, ensuring compliant
implementation for SAP systems. SPS provides complete protection for SAP
landscapes including servers, operating system, databases and the
critical components of the SAP application. It not only provides SAP
high availability clustering, it can also be extended to provide
multi-site disaster recovery and continuous data protection through a
single, reliable, flexible and cost-effective enterprise-class solution.
"Having enjoyed a long-time strategic relationship with both companies,
it is no surprise that SIOS is the first Linux plaer to be certified
with SAP for high availability," said Roman Janke, manager of
Application Operations at Phoenix Contact (News - Alert), a leading manufacturer of
electronic switches. "This certification strengthens the integration of
these key vendor applications and reinforces our ongoing return on
investment and support in working with SIOS to protect our
mission-critical business applications."
SPS for Linux offers sophisticated monitoring, automated recovery and
other advanced features including high-speed, block-level data
replication, redirection of client connectivity, and a unique hybrid
storage model. For SAP environments, SPS is optimized to address
traditional high availability requirements, the complex nuances of
multi-site, wide-area clustering, and high availability within emerging
virtualized SAP environments. SPS is the optimal SAP availability
solution; it is the most flexible, easiest to implement and operate and
is now the first to be SAP HA certified. SPS delivers the best
availability profile at the lowest operating cost.
Product roadmap enhancements to SIOS' SPS include improving the business
continuity posture of SAP deployments through predictive monitoring,
automated responses and centralized reporting of Key Performance
Indicators (KPIs) to ensure adherence to Service Level Agreements
(SLAs). This enables unified control of both clustered and non-clustered
SAP NetWeaver systems through SAP Adaptive Computing (News - Alert) Controller. These
SPS enhancements are slated for release the first half of 2013.
