Peak Availability for Oracle on Windows Without the Premium Cost

DH2i has created a multifaceted high availability solution called DxEnterprise to manage Oracle on Windows and unlock huge cost savings. This technology ensures closest-to-zero application downtime by decoupling application instances from the underlying infrastructure to make them portable and highly available—all while unlocking the capability for unparalleled logical consolidation in your environment.

Fight SQL Server Sprawl with Physical AND Logical Consolidation

SQL Server sprawl is the bane of your existence. Learn how you can safely stack SQL Server instances like never before to eliminate sprawl. You’ll even end up saving 30-60% on licensing costs. The technology also includes built-in performance monitoring at the application level for SLA assurance, as well as failover of SQL Server instances at the speed of an application stop-start.

Stop Running the Modernization Marathon: Cluster with SQL Server Containers

View our webinar to learn how containerizing SQL Server instances significantly minimizes planned downtime and allows for patching/upgrades during normal business hours. You can simply failover into an application or OS update and won’t ever have to deal with a full cluster migration process again.

Containers as a Service: Your Best Option for SQL Server in the Cloud

Join DH2i’s Connor Cox to learn how Containers as a Service can benefit your current and upcoming SQL Server cloud deployments. This solution allows you to achieve advanced, instance-level automated HA, a 3-4x reduction in OSes you need to license and manage, application-level QoS controls for SLA assurance and over 50% savings compared to alternate cloud options.

Containers + SQL Server = Unparalleled Consolidation and HA

In this hands-on tutorial, we show you how to use container management technology to make any SQL Server instance highly available–even with multi-subnet geo-clustering—regardless of its version or edition. We also demonstrate new functionality that lets you safely stack your containerized instances to improve utilization and save on license costs.

Make IT Fun Again: Optimize Your SQL Server Environment

You are experiencing incredible growth in OS and/or virtualization sprawl and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Administrator to server ratios have already reached an unsustainable level and your nights and weekends are continuing to vanish. Watch our webinar and learn about a solution that will help you optimize your SQL Server environment and allow you to allocate more resources to fun, value-added activities.

SQL Server Clustering Without WSFC: A Cure for Clusterphobia

Let’s face it: setting up, testing, and maintaining WSFC for SQL Server is enough to give anyone clusterphobia. Now you can get advanced SQL Server clustering without the complexities and limitations of WSFC—and at lower cost. In this webinar, we show you a new approach to get consistent high availability for any SQL Server instance on any OS.

Squeeze More Value out of your Microsoft SPLA

The pay-as-you-go structure of your service provider license agreement (SPLA) is a great way to manage your costs, but it hasn’t given you much leeway to reduce expenses. Until now.
