XOsoft releases beta version of WANSync™ for the Linux platform - The Federal Reserve Board first to evaluate WANSync for Linux as expansion to current WANSync deployment
New York, NY, September 3, 2003 - XOsoft, a leading provider of Business Continuity software solutions, today announced that it has released a new beta version of WANSync for the Linux platform. WANSync, which until recently supported Windows and SunOS-based platforms, is a state-of-the-art WAN-based application integrity and availability solution. WANSync ensures seamless availability by synchronizing entire application and database servers to remote replicas, and keeping them fresh and available with continuous, real-time replication. With the new beta release, the same level of business continuity can now be attained in Linux-based environments.
The amount of freedom afforded by solutions based on open source, their low cost and the fast pace of innovation that they encourage have driven the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States, like many other organizations, to make investments in Linux-based infrastructure. Given the peace of mind it has achieved using WANSync on its Windows-based servers so far, it seems only natural that the Federal Reserve Board would be compelled expand its existing disaster recovery solution by adding WANSync security to its Linux-based servers.
“WANSync’s performance has always proven to be very high,” says Jerald Brown, a senior communications analyst with the Federal Reserve Board. “It presents negligible bandwidth overhead during server replication to our remote office over T3 lines,” he adds. “Even when network equipment malfunctions, we’ve seen WANSync just keep on working, securing server files without any noticeable problems. We’re obviously interested in the same level of security and business continuity for our Linux-based servers.”
“XOsoft has always made it its goal to lead the business continuity market,” says Leonid Shtilman, Founder and CEO of XOsoft Inc. “In keeping with that tradition, I am proud to say that WANSync is the very first solution of its kind available for the Linux platform”. He goes on to say that, “the WANSync solutions chosen by the Federal Reserve represent the most advanced WAN-based application integrity and availability platform on the market. Ensuring seamless availability, WANSync synchronizes entire application servers and constantly replicates updates and changes to either local or remote replicas in real time. Should a server fail for any reason, a geographically remote WANSync replica will simply take its place and provide the fastest path to recovery.”
