SIOS DataKeeper Cloud Edition

 A highly optimised cloud-based replication solution. Running in Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), it provides replication between highly reliable availability zones having low latency network connectivity. It integrates seamlessly with Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover Clustering with features such as cross-subnet failover and tunable heartbeat parameters making it easy for administrators to deploy geographically dispersed clusters.

SIOS DataKeeper provides the data replication mechanism which extends Windows Clustering, allowing administrators to take advantage of these advanced features to support non-shared disk high availability configurations. Once SIOS DataKeeper Cloud Edition is installed, a new storage class resource type called DataKeeper Volume is available. This new SIOS DataKeeper Volume resource can be used in place of the traditional Physical Disk resource to enable geographically dispersed clusters, also known as multi-site clusters.
