iTera, Inc. and Constant Data, both leaders in high availability technology, have formalized a strategic alliance between the two companies to cross-market each other's products. This alliance allows each company to fully extend high availability capabilities to enterprises across heterogeneous environments.
iTera' Echo2 High Availability is widely installed in IBM iSeries environments, while Constant Data's high availability products enjoy significant distribution across popular server environments including Linux and Solaris. With the proliferation of Linux environments in logical partitions on iSeries, and the growing number of enterprises that have Linux, Windows and iSeries servers, the alliance between these respective industry leaders is a natural fit.
"We are excited about the opportunities that will come about as the result of the alliance between iTera and Constant Data, said Dan NeVille, president of iTera, Inc. "This brings together products of two very innovative companies, providing a powerful cross-platform high availability solution for protecting enterprise computing assets."
"This partnership will provide higher levels of data availability for customer's heterogeneous computer infrastructures with continuous real-time data replication and high availability clustering technologies", said Paul Sustman, president of Constant Data, Inc. "Our market presence will clearly expand and customers will enjoy increased data protection capabilities and data consolidation benefits with their existing IBM iSeries systems."
iTera's Echo2 High Availability software for IBM iSeries is built natively on IBM's powerful remote journaling and clustering technologies. This along with high levels of automation and state of the art auditing features provide a very reliable yet affordable high availability offering.
Constant Data is the industry's first company to deliver wide-area real-time data replication solutions for the Linux enterprise server market. The company's flagship product, Constant Replicator™, automatically maintains file and database synchronization from anywhere-to-anywhere ensuring full-time data availability.
