SteelEye supports disaster recovery and business continuity for Windows Server 2008 R2

SteelEye Technology Inc. announced SteelEye DataKeeper support for Windows Server 2008 R2, including support for multi-site clusters of Hyper-V, SQL Server, File/Print, DHCP and other Microsoft cluster resource types. DataKeeper is a data replication product for Windows Server 2003 and 2008. It enables disaster recovery (DR) without the data loss typically associated with traditional data backup and recovery technologies. With DataKeeper's real-time continuous replication of Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs), standby servers can be activated with little data loss in the event of a disaster.

Along with supporting Hyper-V clusters, DataKeeper also enables multi-site clusters for all other Microsoft cluster resource types. It also reduces the cost of deploying clusters by eliminating the need for a storage area network (SAN).
