LINBIT, the de-facto industry standard in open-source software for High Availability (HA), Disaster Recovery (DR), and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) today announced the next phase of its partnership with Alteeve, a pioneer in next generation Intelligent Availability software. Together, the companies can deliver a HA virtualization solution with over 99.9999% (six nines) uptime, a significant achievement that dramatically reduces cost and complexity for mission-critical Enterprise IT deployments. The joint offering brings together two trusted providers of HA software, combining the strengths of LINBIT DRBD software with Alteeve’s Anvil! software.

“When it comes to reliability and support, our expectation for excellence could not be any higher.” – Ovais Vaid, Kaiser Permanente

Part of the Linux kernel since 2009, the LINBIT DRBD software is both fast and mature, with over 1.6 million downloads and over a decade and a half of service. In that time, it has become the Enterprise choice for thousands of companies around the globe. From SMB to Enterprise, the Anvil! software has set a new benchmark for system reliability, availability and maintainability.

The LINBIT DRBD software seamlessly replicates data between servers, eliminating single points of failure within an IT infrastructure regardless of which applications are running. With the LINBIT software, “we were able to reduce downtime to an absolute minimum, and our business faced no disruption during installation,” stated Marina Mavridou, IT Director, Bon Studio S.A.

Alteeve’s clients trust it with protecting what matters most – their mission critical systems. Ovais A. Vaid of Vision Essentials by Kaiser Permanente stated, “When it comes to reliability and support, our expectation for excellence could not be any higher. Alteeve and the Anvil! have met those expectations in delivering the reliability and support that we have come to depend on. They have proven to be experts in their field.”

“Today’s organizations can’t afford the damaging effects of data loss or downtime. We are excited to team up with Alteeve to bring a bulletproof HA solution that closes the gaps left open by existing solutions claiming High Availability,” said Brian Hellman, COO of LINBIT.

Madison Kelly, Chief Technical Officer of Alteeve said, “The Anvil! software when combined with LINBIT DRBD software natively converges compute, virtualization and storage into a single, intelligent platform that is designed to operate autonomously. This convergence enables IT teams to focus on the applications and services that power their operations instead of their infrastructure.”
