SIOS Technology has announced that Asite, provider of the Asite CDE open platform for construction management, is using SIOS DataKeeper to achieve high availability of its critical applications in a Microsoft Azure cloud environment. Asite CDE enables construction industry companies to collaborate, plan, design and build capital projects with seamless information sharing across the supply chain.
The Asite CDE platform comprises several Microsoft SQL Server databases and a critical file system. Asite wanted to migrate their CDE platform as well as the SQL Server databases and file system it relies on from a hosted service provider environment to a public cloud environment. For this migration to be successful, they needed to ensure they could maintain the same level of high availability (HA) protection in the cloud as they had in their managed hosting environment.
SIOS DataKeeper also allows Asite to use fast SSD storage in the public cloud and in on-premises virtual servers for added performance. The SIOS cluster implementation process was user-friendly and documentation was clear and helpful. “The seamless transition of databases, as well as file system cluster nodes, has made us confident in our selection,” said Rupendrasingh Butola, Asite’s Director of Platform Operations.
Asite realized a variety of benefits by using SIOS DataKeeper, including:
· High availability of the services (database and file system);
· Seamless transition of the services;
· Care-free maintenance of the platform; and
· Responsive support in case of any queries
