SIOS Holds Position as First Linux Player in the World to Achieve SAP High Availability Interface Certification

SIOS Technology Corporation, a leading provider of high availability and data protection software solutions for Linux and Windows, today announced it was the first Linux high availability player in the world to achieve SAP Application Server High Availability (HA) Interface Certification for its SteelEye® Protection Suite (SPS).

The HA-Interface Certification lets customers know that by using SIOS SPS, they are deploying high availability protection designed and certified to work with any SAP landscape. This equates to faster installation, fewer issues, superior protection, full SAP support and peace of mind that all components will work together seamlessly.

"SIOS worked closely with SAP's Linux Lab to achieve this first of its kind high availability certification," said Scott Armour, COO at SIOS Technology Corporation. "Our SteelEye software has been the innovative leader in SAP HA protection for more than a decade; this certification is the latest illustration of our close work with SAP to assure the best SAP landscape availability while also delivering the added benefits of integrated offerings and support."

SIOS’ SPS integrates with SAP to bring best-practice business continuity to SAP Business Suite software customers, ensuring compliant implementation for SAP systems. SPS provides complete protection for SAP landscapes including servers, operating system, databases and the critical components of the SAP application. It not only provides SAP high availability clustering, it can also be extended to provide multi-site disaster recovery and continuous data protection through a single, reliable, flexible and cost-effective enterprise-class solution.

“Having enjoyed a long-time strategic relationship with both companies, it is no surprise that SIOS is the first Linux player to be certified with SAP for high availability,” said Roman Janke, manager of Application Operations at Phoenix Contact, a leading manufacturer of electronic switches. “This certification strengthens the integration of these key vendor applications and reinforces our ongoing return on investment and support in working with SIOS to protect our mission-critical business applications.”

SPS for Linux offers sophisticated monitoring, automated recovery and other advanced features including high-speed, block-level data replication, redirection of client connectivity, and a unique hybrid storage model. For SAP environments, SPS is optimized to address traditional high availability requirements, the complex nuances of multi-site, wide-area clustering, and high availability within emerging virtualized SAP environments. SPS is the optimal SAP availability solution; it is the most flexible, easiest to implement and operate and is now the first to be SAP HA certified. SPS delivers the best availability profile at the lowest operating cost.

Product roadmap enhancements to SIOS’ SPS include improving the business continuity posture of SAP deployments through predictive monitoring, automated responses and centralized reporting of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to ensure adherence to Service Level Agreements (SLAs). This enables unified control of both clustered and non-clustered SAP NetWeaver systems through SAP Adaptive Computing Controller. These SPS enhancements are slated for release the first half of 2013.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip?
