SAN MATEO, CA – May 26, 2015 – SIOS Technology Corp. (www.us.sios.com), maker of SAN and #SANLess clustering software products, today announced it received a Most Valuable Product (MVP) award for 2015 from Computer Technology Review for its SIOS DataKeeper™ Cluster Edition software.
As one of a select number of notable IT products receiving CTR’s MVP award, SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition was honored by CTR’s editorial panel based on rigorous judging criteria that included product innovation, functionality and affordability.
SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition software enables SANLess clustering for high availability and disaster protection in Windows Server Failover Clustering environments. It protects data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments and provides enterprise-class protection for all server workloads at a fraction of the cost of traditional shared-storage (SAN) based clusters.
“Host-based replication solutions for Windows often require additional hardware accelerators or compression devices,” said Computer Technology Review Editor-in-Chief, Kim Kay. “Not so with SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition, which allows users to hand-pick industry-standard hardware and local attached storage in a ‘shared-nothing’ or SANLess configuration,” Kay said. “That’s one of the many reasons they earned an MVP award from Computer Technology Review.”
“This award is a source of great pride to our organization and demonstrates our dedication to achieving measurable ROI for customers by protecting applications, like Windows SQL Server, from downtime in a cloud environment and to extend that high availability across on-premises and cloud resources,” said Jerry Melnick, COO of SIOS Technology. “SIOS DataKeeper is a key ingredient added to Windows Server Failover Clustering environments that enables customers to have high availability clustering protection in environments where traditional shared storage clusters are impractical or impossible.”
