Allows dynamic deployment of web servers, reducing amount of redundant equipment.
Technauts announced that it has expanded the capabilities of its eServer.group to include failover/redundancy at the application level for Apache Web servers. According to the company, this new technology eliminates the potential failure of individual Web sites by enabling a site to fail over to another server if application or hardware problems are detected.
The company says that Apache with failover/redundancy capability provides increased efficiency, cost-effectiveness and ease of use. Major benefits being touted by Technauts include:
'"We are continuing our commitment to provide a service-enabling framework that allows ISPs and ASPs to deploy fault-tolerant solutions that enhance their customers' Web experience," said Larry Deaton, Technauts president and CEO. "eServer.group gives service providers an additional source of recurring monthly revenue while ensuring their customers peace of mind."
"Technauts is addressing customer demand by combining the functionality and flexibility of its eServer.group technology with Apache's strength in the marketplace," said Eric Klein, senior analyst with the Yankee Group. "This greatly expands the number of companies who can take advantage of Technauts' fault tolerant solution."
