Storage Switzerland Releases New Report, "Stopping High Availability Sprawl"

Sprawl Further Complicates an Already Complicated High Availability (HA) Process and Slows Digital Transformation - Puts Revenue at Risk

FORT COLLINS, Co., Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DH2i®, the leading provider of multi-platform Smart Availability™, disaster recovery (DR) and cost improvement solutions for Windows, Linux and Oracle databases and Docker containers, today announced that Storage Switzerland, a premier authority on data management technology and methodology, has released a Product Spotlight entitled, "Stopping High Availability Sprawl."

In the report, George Crump, Storage Switzerland's Founder and Chief Steward, comments, "Almost every organization has a group of applications that must always be available. The cost of downtime is so significant that IT will want to expend large chunks of the IT budget to make sure they are available. Because of the link between these investments and revenue, or loss of revenue, the organization usually approves these expenses. The problem, other than the cost, is each application or operating system platform has its own high availability (HA) solution, which leads to a sprawl that further complicates an already complicated process and slows digital transformation."

The report goes on to explain why IT needs to look for a new class of HA solutions, the criticality of best execution venue (BEV), and why replication is not true HA. DH2i's DxEnterprise v17.5 is then detailed, and offered as a solution for streamlining and ensuring HA, optimizing server and operating system investments, and decreasing costs – all while enabling BEV and digital transformation.

Crump summarizes, "Providing High Availability to an organization's applications is a high-pressure aspect of IT responsibilities. Forcing IT to use a different HA solution for each application further complicates matters while increasing costs. DH2i's DxEnterprise can consolidate the HA responsibility to a single solution that also monitors for best performance venues and allows better optimization of server and operating system investments."
