SonaSafe® Backup and Recovery Software Provides an Affordable Easy to Use Replication Solution for Microsoft SQL Server
San Jose, California - Sonasoft Corp. announces the availability of an intelligent standby capability for Microsoft SQL server. Sonasoft is introducing the product at the PASS Community Summit being held in Grapevine (Dallas), Texas. The new offering is a unique replication solution for enabling disaster recovery protection for SQL Servers.
The Sonasoft Standby Solution bridges the gap between a highly expensive Failover Clustering solution and time-consuming native SQL Server Backups. Sonasoft provides a high-availability solution, protecting data from hardware/software failures and human errors. This procedure completely automates log shipping practices and ensures data integrity, enabling the standby system to take over instantly in the event of primary system failure. The standby system can be located on-site or at a remote site for protection against natural and man-made disasters.
The standby capability supports one-to-one, many-to-one and one-to-many standby scenarios. In the one to one standby scenario, for each primary server there is a standby server at the remote site. For example, our customer Marketron has 25 servers in the San Francisco and 25 standby servers in Salt Lake City, Utah which is about 700 miles away. The standby updates are happening without any hitch every 15 minutes. The customer would have paid more than $250K for a similar solution. Using Sonasoft, they could deploy it at one fifth of the cost.
In the many to one standby scenario, multiple databases from different primary servers can be replicated to a single standby server at a remote site. By doing this one can reduce both hardware and software costs significantly. Instead of creating standby for all databases on all servers, one can select the key databases from different servers and create standby for them on a single server at the remote site.
One-to-many standby scenario allows one-to-many live replication of a single database, instance or entire SQL Server. For example one may want to create a local standby at the same location as primary server and a standby at a remote location. The local standby can be used for reporting purposes and the remote standby for disaster recovery purposes.
"The automated replication capability solved all our headaches and will for every DBA. The value we get out of the solution is excellent" commented Michael Bruttig, Senior Systems Engineer at Marketron.
