ShaoLin Microsystems Ltd. writes “New Release of ShaoLin InfiniCluster and ShaoLin Volume Replicator

(HONG KONG, 21 March 2005) – ShaoLin Microsystems, a leading provider of enterprise Linux utility computing, announced a new release of a robust yet affordable disaster recovery solution for Linux – ShaoLin InfiniCluster and ShaoLin Volume Replicator. Designed to maximize application availability and data integrity for ensuring business continuity, ShaoLin InfiniCluster and ShaoLin Volume Replicator together provide the most scalable and enterprise-class fault-tolerant solution with unique features.

“Traditional cluster management software which limited 16 or 32 cluster nodes are no longer able to cope with the trend of ‘scale-out’ model. Enterprises tend to have more servers instead of a big server. Now, ShaoLin InfiniCluster and ShaoLin Volume Replicator fulfill their needs by providing limitless scalability and manageability of parallel multi-instance applications.” said David Chow, CEO of ShaoLin Microsystems. “We’re keen to build the fault-resilient clustering infrastructure that not only sustain businesses, but help companies grow and scale to infinite.”

ShaoLin InfiniCluster handles availability issues by maintaining system uptime, simplifying server consolidation and effectively managing applications. ShaoLin Volume Replicator provides reliable real-time data replication to remote sites. The seamless integration of ShaoLin InfiniCluster and ShaoLin Volume Replicator delivers a high availability disaster recovery solution for Linux with unmatched manageability which ensures critical applications and data are protected and recovered in any planned or unplanned downtime.
