    PolyServe Introduces High Availability Solution for Oracle Database Clusters on Linux
    Monday November 29 2004 @ 11:07AM EST

    PolyServe, Inc., a leading supplier of server and storage clustering software for the enterprise data center, today announced the PolyServe Oracle High Availability (HA) Solution for Linux. This is the first complete offering for reliable, simply managed and cost-effective HA clusters of single-system Oracle 9i and 10g databases.

    "PolyServe is a leader in the clustering of both Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and non-RAC applications," said William Hurley, senior analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group. "This introduction underscores PolyServe's innovation leadership by applying cluster file system and HA services across a range of Oracle solutions -- a capability we haven't seen before in the market."

    The PolyServe Oracle HA Solution ensures fault-tolerant Linux server and storage clusters that prevent costly downtime of mission-critical database applications -- a crucial requirement for data centers weighing the move from UNIX to Linux. The PolyServe offering is the only HA solution for Oracle on Linux that eliminates single points of failure and streamlines server and storage management of the Oracle environment.

    Companies such as Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, the Dutch Broadcasting Authority and Close Premium Finance have already successfully implemented the PolyServe Oracle HA Solution on Linux, while also:

    -- Reducing cluster and configuration management time by up to 75 percent
    -- Reducing back-up times and complexity by up to 80 percent
    -- Consolidating Oracle databases onto fewer servers for simplified administration
    -- Providing a seamless migration path to Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) to add scalability
    -- Leveraging the economics of industry-standard Linux servers and storage in lieu of expensive, proprietary UNIX platforms

    "Our research and experience clearly show Oracle users' primary interest in database clusters is for high availability, but current HA technologies increase complexity and risks of operator error that result in missed service level agreements and failed deployments," said Michael Callahan, chief technical officer of PolyServe. "PolyServe's solution, with an integrated cluster file system, uniquely removes the limitations of traditional clustering. We're not only delivering end-to-end fault tolerance across both servers and storage, but also greatly reduced administrative complexity."
