SIOS Technology announced Azure Certified SIOS Datakeeper Cluster Edition is available in the Azure Marketplace and Azure Stack Marketplace.

With this announcement, SIOS offers further integrations with Microsoft Azure delivering a high availability (HA) solution for critical applications running in Azure — and now Azure Stack environments, for a seamless hybrid computing experience. Easy to install Quickstart images are available and will soon be delivered in both the Azure and Azure Stack marketplaces.

SIOS enables enterprises, MSPs and OEMs to create a SANless high availability cluster in Azure and Azure Stack using Microsoft Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC). Integrating SIOS DataKeeper software with WSFC enables customers to quickly and easily protect business-critical Windows environments from downtime and data loss.

“Our twenty years of expertise in the design and implementation of SQL Server high availability solutions has helped many businesses concerned about downtime and meeting SLAs get their most important apps into Azure and protect them from cloud outages,” said Michael Bilancieri, VP, Product, SIOS Technology. “Additionally, we can help Microsoft SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 customers easily migrate to Azure and Azure Stack and take advantage of free extended security updates for SQL Server 2008 with the assurance of high availability and disaster recovery protection for their critical applications.”

Talal Alqinawi, Sr. Director, Azure Product Marketing at Microsoft Corp. said, “The IT landscape is undergoing a fundamental shift as companies are moving from large central datacenters to cloud and hybrid cloud environments. We designed Azure from the ground up to be hybrid, and with offerings like Azure Stack that let companies build and run Azure services from their own data center, we are committed to delivering an optimal cloud experience. We’re pleased SIOS selected Azure to deliver this HA solution in Azure and Azure Stack environments.”
