SteelEye Certified on 360is v1624 Appliance

SteelEye's Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer is now certified for mission critical use on the 360is v1624 virtualization hardware appliance. SteelEye joins VMWare and Citrix XenServer as the 3rd software vendor to achieve this certification on the v1624 hardware appliance.

The certification allows SteelEye, Citrix, and VMWare customers to benefit from higher uptime and faster Disaster Recovery through the use of a solid state, diskless, hardware appliance, optimised for running high performance virtual machines at superior densities than current conventional server platforms. The SteelEye software can also be retro-fitted to customers existing XenServer installations and can replicate non-virtualized servers to VMs.

SteelEye Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer is based on the proven SteelEye Data Replication product and runs within the XenServer Console OS (Dom 0) and provides highly optimized replication of XenServer VMs across any LAN or WAN network connection. Any or all VMs replicated in real-time to a target server are then available to be brought into service as needed for business continuity.
