Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Discusses DH2i as a Disruptive Approach for Protecting Microsoft SQL Server - One that "IT Should Check Out"

DxConsole Software Delivers Assured Availability - Recognizes Complete Dependence On Data And The Pervasiveness Of Microsoft SQL Server As A Key Enabling Platform

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – In a recently issued brief entitled, "DH2i Has a Disruptive Approach to Protecting SQL Databases that IT Should Check Out" from leading IT research, analysis and strategy firm (), Senior Analyst and Research Analyst address the mounting challenges database administrators (DBAs) and other IT professionals are facing in ensuring uninterrupted service availability.  In the brief, Buffington and Keane explain that most data protection, high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) technologies are based at the server or storage level, rather than higher, at the application level.  The two then go on to explain that DH2i's DxConsole offers an availability and resiliency solution that IT professionals and DBAs should be looking into closely, as it delivers a fresh approach to assured availability at the application level, while addressing Microsoft SQL Server as a key enabling platform. 

"End users simply cannot stomach application downtime anymore.  They demand assured access," stated Buffington.  "This was shown clearly in a recent survey conducted by ESG regarding recovery time objectives (RTOs), in which 65% of the respondents had an RTO that ranged from less than 'one hour of downtime' to 'no downtime ever' for high-priority applications."

Buffington continued, "Today, one of the most prevalent platforms for supporting Tier 1 applications is Microsoft SQL Server.  And, while vitally important to countless business organizations around the world, it can be vulnerable to downtime and data loss without a robust data availability and protection backbone.  DH2i provides this backbone - empowering DBAs and application admins to regain control of their SQL environments, and then efficiently and cost effectively devise and execute effective data protection, HA and BC/DR strategies."
