DH2i has announced the latest version of its DxEnterprise (DxE) software. DxE version 17.5 is claimed to be the industry's first and only unified Windows/Linux Smart Availability solution for databases, Docker containers, Availability Groups, and application services.
DxE v17.5 builds on version 17 by adding native support for:
- Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Availability Groups with automatic fault detection and failover between Windows and Linux- an industry first;
- Management, orchestration and automatic failover of Linux application services, including native open source databases;
- Automatic Windows/Linux failover clustering in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure without WSFC and active directory.
DxE v17.5 leverages Smart Availability software to decouple databases, Availability Groups and containers from OS/IT infrastructures for workload portability from any host, to any host, anywhere. Uniting Linux and Windows management in a single console, the new solution also encapsulates native databases instances application services and Docker images for simplified support of digital transformation initiatives. DxE features InstanceMobility for dynamic BEV workload movement and second order consolidation to further enhance cost reduction. Intelligent health and performance QoS monitoring is also offered to simplify administration and increase IT team productivity.
