SteelEye DataKeeper for Windows makes real-time data replication cost-effective and accessible to all business...


SteelEye Technology Inc. gave DataKeeper for Windows real-time, block-level data replication to ensure that regardless of the data type, replication is efficient and not burdensome to system resources. Its synchronous and asynchronous replication feature not only provides systems administrators with more data protection and application performance options, but it also helps ensure that servers are in full sync at all times. This eliminates issues with in-use files, locked files, NTFS permissions and missing files.

Its Cluster Edition allows administrators to build "shared-nothing" and geographically dispersed Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V clusters to protect against both planned and unplanned downtime of servers and storage arrays.

DataKeeper for Windows features include:

  • WAN optimization to efficiently maximize existing WAN connections without costly hardware-based WAN accelerators.
  • Replication of Hyper-V virtual machines for a seamless disaster recovery.
  • Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering support to eliminate single points of failure and to maintain geographically dispersed clusters and hybrid high-availability/disaster-recovery configurations.

System requirements: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, all editions.

Pricing: SteelEye DataKeeper -- $995 per server, SteelEye DataKeeper Cluster Edition -- $4,995 per server.
