DH2i, a provider of multi-platform Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) and Smart Availability software, announced that its DxEnterprise for SDP-enhanced Microsoft SQL Server Availability Groups (AGs) is now available for Linux on RHEL and Ubuntu in AWS Marketplace.
SQL Server users can quickly and easily build SQL Server AGs on Linux for high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) that span across networks-including hybrid cloud implementations-with affordable, pay-as-you-go pricing.
DxEnterprise uses its SDP-enhanced Microsoft SQL Server Availability Groups clustering technology to dramatically reduce the complexity of configuring and managing highly available SQL Server AGs on Linux.
DxEnterprise makes AGs highly available across any infrastructure-all without relying on Pacemaker or any other cumbersome and restrictive cluster orchestration technologies.
DxEnterprise provides advanced fault detection and failover automation to minimize outages for SQL Server databases, helping customers achieve nearest-to-zero total downtime.
It supports Windows as well-even enabling cross-platform failover between Windows and Linux machines.
DxEnterprise SDP-enhanced AGs also enable cross-network failover without opening external ports or the use of virtual private networks (VPNs).
This can not only reduce the complexity and cost of running hybrid clusters between on-premises and AWS, it can also make it easier to take advantage of Microsoft's SQL Server licensing rules that allow for "free" HA and DR secondary replicas for deployments with Software Assurance.
"We are delighted that DxEnterprise is now available in AWS Marketplace," said Don Boxley, DH2i CEO and Co-Founder. "DxEnterprise's built-in SDP-enhanced AG support will enable AWS SQL Server customers to build unified high availability and disaster recovery environments that can span on-premises and the cloud-while reducing costs and network attack surfaces by eliminating unnecessary instances and VPN-related security risks."
