Dec 07, 1999, 13:56 (0 Talkback[s])

"Technauts, makers of the eServer line of smart appliances, today announced the availability of a new technology that provides Linux-based failover and redundancy capabilities at the application and operating system level."

"With an open architecture that is easily ported to other operating systems, the software is geared at service providers, operating system vendors, and enterprise applications developers on a license or OEM arrangement."

"Via a sophisticated system of monitoring and communication, Technauts' failover and redundancy technology provides the reassurance of 99.99 percent uptime for mission critical applications or network services. With this technology, if an operating system or an application should experience a failure, the problem is immediately detected and a second technology-enabled system automatically takes over, assuring businesses that their mission critical applications will remain up and running. The latency period for failure detection and switchover is configurable by application, but defaults to sixty seconds."
