SIOS Technology Corp., an industry leader in application high availability and disaster recovery, announced the immediate availability of SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version 9.6.2. The latest version of its award-winning clustering software provides support for recent operating system upgrades and Azure Shared Disk.

SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux lets IT managers run their business-critical applications in a flexible, scalable cloud environment, such as Microsoft Azure, AWS EC2, and Google Cloud Platform, while maintaining high availability, disaster protection and optimal application performance. With SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux clustering software, customers can create a SANless cluster that uses only local storage, delivering cluster protection in cloud environments where shared storage solutions are impractical or impossible.

“These enhancements reflect that SIOS continues to stay on the forefront of HA/DR as IT infrastructures have evolved from on-premises data centers into complex combinations of on-prem, cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments,” said Masahiro Arai, COO of SIOS Technology.
