The Neverfail Group, a global software company providing high application availability and disaster recovery solutions, launched support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005. Now, organizations that want to leverage the increased functionality of SQL Server 2005 can enjoy "cluster-class" data protection and high availability at a fraction of the cost of clustering solutions.

With Neverfail for SQL Server, end users stay seamlessly connected to this comprehensive database platform. Even if a disruption occurs in the server, operating system, application or network, users experience no awkward transitions or indications of problems. Neverfail for SQL Server can automatically perform failovers when disruptions occur (with no IT staff intervention required) and also proactively monitor the health of the entire SQL environment. In addition, Neverfail for SQL Server enables easy, manual failovers to allow for maintenance without disrupting the productivity of end-users.

"After using a cluster architecture for seven years, we were increasingly unhappy with the complexity and the cost," said Scott Klocker, IT manager for Marblehead Savings Bank, which installed Neverfail for SQL Server in July 2005. "We evaluated several alternatives and found Neverfail to offer similar functionality to clustering, without the expense of buying the additional licenses that clustering requires."
