Sios Gets SAP High Availability Interface Certification
Jan 22, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
SIOS Technology Corp., a provider of high availability and data protection software solutions for Linux and Windows, announced it achieved SAP Application Server High Availability (HA) Interface Certification for its SteelEye Protection Suite (SPS).
According to a release, 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, 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 Corp. "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 said its 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 enterprise-class solution.
"Having enjoyed a long-time strategic relationship with both companies, it is no surprise that SIOS is the first Linux player to be certified with SAP for high availability," said Roman Janke, manager of Application Operations at Phoenix Contact, a 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."
Sios noted that SPS for Linux offers monitoring, automated recovery and other features including high-speed, block-level data replication, redirection of client connectivity, and a 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 virtualized SAP environments. SPS is the optimal SAP availability solution.
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 Controller.
