Neverfail - Continuous Availability Suite
License Price: US$ 2,490.00

Introduction

Neverfail occupies a niche that is not yet being served well by larger vendors, namely the supply of affordable HA and DR systems for small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) or for departmental use in large companies. The need for such systems among SMEs has grown as applications such as email have become critical to business operations, and outages have become increasingly painful.

Features and benefits
  • This report describes the advantages and shortcomings of Neverfail's software
  • Neverfail's software offers greater protection for virtual servers than HA tools native to virtualization platforms such as VMware Vsphere.
Highlights

Neverfail’s software is a fully integrated, storage-agnostic, single-vendor product that can be installed in as little as one day, and is tailored to implement best practices for a range of applications, for both virtual and physical servers.

Your key questions answered
  • Neverfail provides strong protection of critical applications, and can be used to augment more expensive physical clustering systems.
  • Neverfail relies on asynchronous data replication, and so cannot guarantee that all transactions will be recovered after application failure.
