Key Features

Flexible, policy-driven clustering and continuous data replication—boost flexibility while improving service availability and resource utilization by supporting the mixed clustering of both physical and virtual Linux servers. Protect workloads across globally distributed data centers.

Setup, administration, management and monitoring—save time by easily managing clustered Linux servers with a powerful unified interface to quickly and easily install, configure and manage clusters, plus a simple, user-friendly tool for monitoring the clustered environment.

Continuous data replication across cluster servers in data centers anywhere in the world and minimize data loss due to corruption or failure by protecting your data assets using your existing IT infrastructure.

Cluster-aware file system and volume management for optimized performance.

Virtualization aware for managing virtual clusters as well as physical clusters.
