Sanbolic, a data management solutions provider, is launching Sanbolic AppCluster support for public clouds. Sanbolic AppCluster, a Microsoft SQL Server-specific module within its Melio software, extends the agility, high availability (HA), and scalability of SQL Server workloads across physical, virtualized, and private and public cloud environments.

With the addition of public cloud support, customers can further minimize the cost and complexity of managing SQL Server clusters while extending the economics of public cloud to a widely deployed database server and information platform.

Due to its popularity and rapid deployment, SQL Server sprawl has become a common and significant hurdle to overcome and raised associated issues such as poor utilization, added cost, and management complexity. Although SQL Server virtualization can help customers consolidate server instances, it, too, presents its own set of problems and limitations. Sanbolic’s Melio helps customers drastically improve application agility, availability, and performance while improving storage utilization and reducing the management cost required to support clustered SQL Server environments.

Now, all of the capabilities that Sanbolic Melio provides in a private data center can be enjoyed in the public cloud, along with all of the added advantages a public cloud can provide. Delivered via well-known and trusted public-cloud providers, Sanbolic AppCluster enables existing enterprise-class clustered SQL Server users to confidently move this area of their IT infrastructure into the public cloud in order to dramatically lower the associated costs and management burden, as well as ensure always-on availability and on-demand scalability.

The service allows rapidly growing enterprises to quickly and affordably access enterprise-class IT infrastructure, which was previously beyond their reach from both an operational and capital expense perspective and thereby helps to level the playing field between their company and larger more established competitors. It also helps enterprises re-focus the highly valuable time and expertise of their IT organization on activities that directly contribute to the bottom-line, speed time-to-market and increase competitive advantage.

“Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provides highly desirable economics, therefore customers are looking for the ability to move their existing applications to the public cloud,” said Momchil “Memo” Michailov, CEO and co-founder, Sanbolic. “Sanbolic’s AppCluster, with added public cloud support, enables IT organizations to leverage a unified data management platform across their existing data centers and the world-class public cloud providers, so that they can optimize IT infrastructure and enhance application availability.”
