SIOS, SUPERMICRO, Fusion-io Launch SQL Cluster Appliance


SIOS Technology today announced that it has teamed up with SUPERMICRO and Fusion-io to launch the high performance SuperSQL Cluster Appliance. The high performance, high availability server platform is fully integrated with SIOS’ DataKeeper Cluster Edition (DKCE) software and Fusion ioMemory products in a single chassis, dual-node SUPERMICRO 2U Twin SuperServer.

SIOS’ data replication software DKCE arms the new SuperSQL Cluster with higher data availability and increased performance. Synchronous data replication, resulting in zero data loss, has less than 10 percent overhead, which claims an advantage over alternative solutions whose performance impact can be in excess of 60 percent.

“Working closely with SUPERMICRO and Fusion-io, we have created a compelling offering that provides the benefits of a cluster without the complexity of a SAN in a cost-effective, single unit SKU,” said Celia Cattani, SIOS vice president of America, sales. “It’s easy to use and provides high performance and high availability in a single chassis containing two independent nodes. This appliance is an ideal solution for databases like Microsoft SQL or enterprise applications like Microsoft Dynamics or Lync.”

With SIOS, the company claims that data protection is possible without an expensive SAN. DKCE is fully integrated with Microsoft Cluster Services (MSCS) and Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC). DKCE eliminates storage as a potential single point of failure (SPoF), enhancing both availability and performance.

High capacity ioMemory products from Fusion-io deliver increased low-latency data performance. In addition, SUPERMICRO's 2U Twin server based appliance uses 10/40GbE network interface cards to provide ultra-low latency data mirroring for the database instances, as well as high-speed data transport between cluster nodes.

“SUPERMICRO’s 2U Twin architecture achieves the best balance between performance and density while providing the full range of feature sets required for SIOS’s SuperSQL Cluster Appliance,” said Wally Liaw, vice president of sales, international at SUPERMICRO. “Our 2U Twin server features two independent nodes per system and offers the highest levels of efficiency, reliability and flexibility through its shared resource architecture. With support for SIOS’ DKCE and Fusion-io accelerated storage memory technologies, we are delivering the most cost-effective high-speed data replication solution on the market for mission critical database applications.”

“Databases like Microsoft SQL Server are the backbone of many businesses around the world,” said Thomas Kejser, Fusion-io EMEA chief technology officer. “By aggregating Fusion ioMemory with SIOS and SUPERMICRO products, customers will be able to accelerate their databases with advanced performance and efficiency across datacenters and high-density environments.”

The new SuperSQL Cluster Appliance supports any edition of Microsoft SQL Server, including the cost-effective Standard Edition. High-density and low-power environments will greatly benefit from the SuperSQL Cluster appliance. This includes data centers, industrial process controls, small offices and web proxy and cache servers.
