DH2i launches DxEnterprise: smart availability software for containers

DH2i has announced the general availability of DxEnterprise (DxE) for Containers, enabling cloud-native Microsoft SQL Server container availability groups (AG) outside and inside Kubernetes.
Container use is skyrocketing for digital transformation projects—particularly the use of stateful containers for databases such as Microsoft SQL Server. This growing stateful database container use is also generating a hard production deployment requirement for database-level high availability in Kubernetes.
For medium and large organizations running SQL Server, database-level HA has traditionally been provided by SQL Server availability group. However, SQL Server AGs have not been supported in Kubernetes until now —hindering organizations’ ability to undergo digital transformations. DxEnterprise (DxE) for Containers is the answer to the problem says DH2i.
DxEnterprise for Containers accelerates an enterprise’s digital transformation by speeding the adoption of highly available stateful containers. DxEnterprise (DxE) for Containers provides SQL Server AG support for SQL Server containers, including for Kubernetes clusters. It enables customers to deploy stateful containers to create new and innovative applications while also improving operations with near-zero RTO to more efficiently deliver better products and services at a lower cost. Additionally, it helps organizations generate new revenue streams by enabling them to build distributed Kubernetes AG clusters across availability zones/regions, resulting in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments which can rapidly adapt to changes in market conditions and consumer preferences.
