The NCR Data Exchange Hub (DEH) C2C Exchange software leverages a clustered Microsoft SQL Server database operating in Azure Cloud.
The C2C application runs on SQL Server Standard Edition in a two-node Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) configuration with Always On Failover Clustering for failover orchestration.
SIOS DataKeeper software creates a SANless clustering environment by providing host-based, block-level replication to synchronize local storage on all cluster nodes. If a threat to application/database availability is detected, operation is automatically moved to the secondary node, which continues using synchronized copy of primary storage.
Since implementing SIOS DataKeeper in the NCR C2C Exchange, there have been no downtime issues at EDC involving the database or data loss between nodes.
EDC said that the company is broadening C2C Exchange adoption nationwide with its commercially-available NG-CAD-X C2C Exchange product.
NG-CAD-X is message compatible with the NCR C2C Exchange, deployed in the Azure Government Cloud for CJIS-compliance and law enforcement adoption in addition to fire and EMS ESF, and SIOS DataKeeper Cluster Edition in its database architecture.
