DxEnterprise Recognized for Enabling Microsoft SQL Server-based Applications to Move Freely and Transparently Among Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments


Fort Collins | January 18, 2017

DH2i™ Company, the leading provider of Microsoft Windows Server application portability and management solutions, today announced that Virtualization Review has recognized its DxEnterprise technology with an Editor’s Choice Award. The software is a first-of-its-kind container technology that enables workload and data portability and high availability (HA) for any Microsoft Windows Server application such as SQL Server, or any Windows service. It was ranked by Virtualization Review as one of the “best of the best” of 2016 for the significant management, consolidation, cost-savings and availability benefits it provides to customers across numerous industries.

“DH2i has focused on making it possible for SQL Server-based applications to move freely and transparently among physical, virtual and cloud environments,” said Dan Kusnetzky, founder of Kusnetzky Group LLC and contributor to Virtualization Review in the December 16, 2016 article. “Most recently, it announced an approach to enable SQL Server-based application mobility based on containers. Rackspace and DH2i have been working together to provide a SQL Server Container-as-a-Service offering, which should be of interest to companies interested in allowing their workloads to burst out of their internal network into a Rackspace-hosted cloud environment.”

DH2i’s DxEnterprise container management technology creates a framework for orchestrating datacenter management, high availability/disaster tolerance and policy-based SLA management. DxEnterprise is the only technology of this nature that leverages native Windows file system (NTFS) and shared or replicated storage technology to coordinate access to a pool of disk resources in the cluster. This enables consistent disk presentation no matter which host the container is active on. DxEnterprise can support any current version or edition of SQL Server and OS across any physical, virtual or hybrid infrastructure.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Virtualization Review as one of their Editor’s Choice Award winners,” said Don Boxley, Co-Founder and CEO, DH2i. “At DH2i we’ve worked hard to deliver an innovative solution that meets the growing need for Windows Server application portability. As a result, customers can simplify their environments, drive greater efficiency and dramatically lower costs.”
