Returning to the site where it won "Best Cluster Solution" at last year's LinuxWorld Expo, SteelEye Technology reached another milestone in Linux application and data protection as it announced two new products. The first is LifeKeeper for Linux v6, an update to its award-winning high availability clustering solution. The second is SteelEye Data Replication v6, its new solution to provide continuous data protection across both local and wide area networks. With this new product set, SteelEye extends its leadership role in protecting business-critical applications running on Linux against downtime.

In addition to protecting VMware ESX Server 2.5, now LifeKeeper for Linux v6 adds management for applications and data residing in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 from Novell and VMware Infrastructure 3 systems. Using this new product, applications can be migrated seamlessly among servers in a variety of cluster configurations including physical-to-physical, virtual-to-virtual, and physical-to-virtual failovers. This flexibility allows users to build the cluster that best matches their availability needs and best leverages their existing infrastructure.

An industry-proven solution on Linux, SteelEye Data Replication offers users the ability to protect data more quickly and efficiently than traditional, standalone backup technologies. SteelEye Data Replication v6 supports either synchronous or asynchronous continuous data protection with intent logging across both LANs and WANs. These features are critical to a fully integrated disaster recovery solution, complete with real-time data replication and automated monitoring and failover for applications.
