This ESG Lab review documents hands-on testing of DH2i’s DxEnterprise container management software with a focus on application and services consolidation while highlighting the added benefits of flexibility, automation, mobility, and availability offered through containerization in a Windows environment.
In this whitepaper, I’ll review how to use DxEnterprise to create simple-to-manage, simple-to-deploy, high availability and disaster recovery solutions. In the process, I will show how it supports datacenter orchestration, letting you quickly and easily migrate SQL Server instances from one hardware platform to another with little downtime, while upgrading the operating system (OS), SQL Server, or server infrastructure. Overall, based on what I’ve seen, I expect that DxEnterprise can significantly help with datacenter costs and uptime…
The cost of downtime could be astronomical for an organization. The tangible costs alone can significantly impact the business. This whitepaper delves into how to minimize both planned and unplanned downtime and how to ensure SQL Server is available to support the business (and help make the IT Department the hero of the company).
DH2i’s DxEnterprise software containerizes any existing Windows Server application service, file share, or SQL Server instance, decoupling them from a physical server, virtual machine, or cloud server.
A company called DH2i is taking a fresh approach to assured availability, one that recognizes our complete dependence on data and the pervasiveness of Microsoft SQL Server as an enabling platform.
Now, application virtualization takes a logical next step and puts the application (and, by implication, the IT administrator) in the driver’s seat—delivering responsiveness and performance while further enhancing utilization and cost-effectiveness.
