Zadara Storage Inc. has simplified enterprise storage in a hybrid world.
Zadara has announced a new solution that is able for enterprises to migrate SQL Server database apps to the cloud – in a phased manner. Zadara will highlight the new benefit with all of the features of its fully-managed, hybrid cloud storage platform.
High availability (HA) is imperative to a well-architected SQL Server environment and modernizing business-critical applications. While Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition provides a mechanism for doing so, it is costly for organizations that only need its HA features. But according to hybrid cloud storage leader Zadara, it doesn’t have to be this way. Zadara’s service offering allows users to meet their high-availability requirements using SQL Standard Edition within the AWS environment – providing them with the ability to maintain HA without the cost of SQL Enterprise Edition. In addition, applications can be migrated to AWS without any code changes.
“Our newest offering is the latest example of Zadara’s ability to deliver real business value,” said Oded Kellner, vice president, product management at Zadara. “We are helping customers navigate the hidden risks and unnecessary expenses that have plagued so many SQL Server migrations to public clouds – with greater reliability, faster performance and increased security capabilities.”
