SteelEye Forms Alliance with EnterpriseDB

SteelEye Technology, Inc., a provider of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for multi-vendor IT infrastructures, yesterday announced it has formed a sales partnership with EnterpriseDB, which provides enterprise-class products and services based on the PostgreSQL open source database. Under terms of the agreement, EnterpriseDB will offer SteelEye's business continuity and data replication solutions as value-added options within its Postgres Plus product line. EnterpriseDB will provide its customers with a "one-stop shop" for the SteelEye solutions, which include SteelEye LifeKeeper for Linux and SteelEye Data Replication for Linux.

SteelEye's LifeKeeper for Linux platform maintains the high availability of clustered Linux systems by monitoring system and application health, maintaining client connectivity and providing uninterrupted data access. SteelEye Data Replication for Linux is a platform that overcomes the limitations of similar replication technologies by providing the "3 Rs" of data protection: Replicate, Rewind and Recover. New Postgres Plus customers can order the SteelEye solutions directly from EnterpriseDB and have the business continuity and replication software shipped along with their Postgres Plus database solution.

PostgreSQL is an advanced open source database management system supported by a global community of developers and companies. SteelEye has supported PostgreSQL open source software in a number of its products and services for several years. Both EnterpriseDB and SteelEye have worked in the past on the PostgreSQL platform and incorporating business continuity and data replication technology into the open source software.

"EnterpriseDB will bundle and resell the two options as part of its Postgres Plus standard and advanced server products. The two options give customers flexibility in choosing the type of high availability and data recovery solution they need, either disk-to-disk backup with SteelEye Data Replication or clustering with SteelEye LifeKeeper," Jeff Roulston, vice president of sales for SteelEye Technology, tells 5 Minute Briefing.

SteelEye support for both EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus Standard Server and Advanced Server is available immediately.
