New SIOS Protection Suite for Linux version 9.6.0 improves data integrity protection in Microsoft Azure and delivers up to five times faster recovery time for SAP HANA databases
SAN MATEO, Calif., November 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – SIOS Technology Company., an industry leader in application high availability and disaster recovery, today announced the immediate availability of SIOS Protection Suite for Linux, version 9.6. The latest version of its award-winning clustering software improves data integrity protection in Microsoft Azure and delivers up to five times faster recovery time for SAP HANA databases.
SIOS Protection Suite for Linux enables IT managers to run their business-critical applications in a flexible and scalable cloud environment, such as Microsoft Azure, without sacrificing performance, high availability, or disaster protection. With SIOS Linux clustering software, customers can create a SAN-less cluster that uses only local storage, providing cluster protection in cloud environments where shared storage solutions are inconvenient or impossible.
“The enhancements in the latest release are a testament to our continued focus on delivering flexible and reliable high availability for mission-critical applications such as SAP S4 / HANA in the cloud,” said Masahiro Arai, COO of SIOS Technology.
New in SIOS Protection Suite for Linux, version 9.6
SIOS Closure Mechanism for Azure Eliminates ‘Divided Brain’
The new Azure SIOS fencing mechanism in version 9.6 integrates tightly with the native Microsoft Azure fencing agent to eliminate a potential threat to data integrity called split brain. This problem occurs when servers in a cluster lose communication and start modifying the same data at the same time, which causes data integrity issues.
The new SIOS Protection Suite fencing mechanism automatically detects “split brain” scenarios and interfaces with the Microsoft Azure fencing agent to deactivate the secondary cluster node (s). This feature not only protects data integrity, but also saves customers money by eliminating the need to deploy and pay for an additional server for fence capacity.
Enhanced HANA Application Recovery Kit Accelerates Recovery Time
SIOS Protection Suite for Linux 9.6 provides five times faster recovery of SAP HANA databases in the event of a failure. The SIOS Application Recovery Kit (ARK) enhancement for SAP HANA dramatically improves the RTO for resource and application failures, limiting the actions of the HANA quickCheck function and providing fast and efficient failover of operations to a backup server.
Added support for new versions of OS and apps:
SIOS Protection Suite for Linux 9.6.0 also supports additional platforms and operating systems including: SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLES) 15.3, Oracle OS 8.4 and
Oracle 21c db.
