IW: PolyServe Announces LocalCluster Server Clustering Software For High Availability

Sep 07, 2000, 20:55 (0 Talkback[s])

"PolyServe, the leading provider of software-based, distributed server clustering technology, announced today the immediate availability of LocalCluster, PolyServe's software-only solution offering high availability (HA) and load balancing for web, file, email, and TCP/IP servers. LocalCluster builds on the success the company has had to date with its HA server clustering application "Understudy", initially released at the end of 1999. With the release of LocalCluster, customers can slash fixed IT hardware and administrative costs, improve service levels and accelerate ebusiness growth rates. Customers also benefit from LocalCluster's broad OS platform support, ease of maintenance and implementation and reporting features. A detailed Fact Sheet on LocalCluster can be found at www.polyserve.com/localcluster.html."

"LocalCluster is the only high availability software product on the market that is both a completely distributed network clustering solution and an integrated data clustering solution," said Vince Schiavo, President of PolyServe. "We are able to replicate web data across the servers in the cluster to guarantee clients see the same data, regardless of which host is servicing requests. Since both the network and data clustering is done in software, with no single point of failure, we can offer this solution at a breakthrough price," continued Mr. Schiavo. "LocalCluster saves time and money by eliminating the need to manually synchronize all files in the cluster. Web managers will no longer have to update all servers when a web change is made for their site," said Mr. Schiavo."

"LocalCluster is initially available for Linux and will subsequently be available for Sun Solaris, Windows 2000 and FreeBSD...."
