SIOS Technology Corp. announced the availability of SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version 9.6.2.

The latest version of its clustering software provides support for recent operating system upgrades and Azure Shared Disk.

SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux lets IT managers run their business-critical applications in a flexible, scalable cloud environment, such as Microsoft Azure or AWS EC2, while maintaining high availability, disaster protection and optimal application performance. With SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux clustering software, customers can create a SANless cluster that uses only local storage, delivering cluster protection in cloud environments where shared storage solutions are impractical or impossible.

“These enhancements reflect that SIOS continues to stay on the forefront of HA/DR as IT infrastructures have evolved from on-premises data centers into complex combinations of on-prem, cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments,” said Masahiro Arai, COO of SIOS Technology.

SIOS LifeKeeper Linux, version 9.6.2 takes advantage of the latest bug fixes, security updates, and application support critical to their infrastructures and adds support for the following operating system versions:

- RHEL 8.6

- Oracle Linux 8.6

- Rocky 8.6

The latest SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version also expands the scope in environments where SIOS can sell and deploy by adding support for Miracle Linux version 8.4.

LifeKeeper for Linux v 9.6.2 is now certified for use with Azure shared disk, enabling customers to build a Linux HA cluster in Azure that leverages the new Azure shared disk resource. And LifeKeeper can now use the new Standby Node Health Check feature to lock the standby node against attempted writes to a protected shared storage device, protecting against data corruption that can result from loss of network connection between cluster nodes.

SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux comes with Application Recovery Kits (ARKs) that add application-specific intelligence, enabling automation of cluster configuration and orchestration of failover in compliance with application best practices. The latest version of SIOS LifeKeeper includes a new ARK that makes it easier for the user to install, find and use Load Balancer functionality in AWS EC2.
