LIFEKEEPER FOR LINUX ENSURES PRINT SERVER UPTIME.

SteelEye Technology Inc., Mountain View, Calif., a provider of enterprise application reliability solutions, has introduced an extension of its LifeKeeper(R) Next Generation Enterprise Reliability(TM) platform to protect the uptime of Linux-based print servers. With the addition of the industry's first high availability support for Linux print servers, SteelEye's LifeKeeper now provides enterprises with a cost-effective solution for ensuring continuous availability of business- critical office productivity applications across Linux and Windows NT platforms. Maximizing uptime of print services significantly improves the end-user productivity in high print volume environments.

Enterprise customers rely on print servers in print-intensive environments, such as front-office, order fulfillment, logistics and regulated industries. SteelEye's LifeKeeper for Linux monitors the status of print spoolers and daemons as well as servers, network and data to ensure maximum uptime and utmost accessibility to print servers. With intelligent failover and multiple fault-detection mechanisms for detecting and recovering from hardware, component or application faults, SteelEye's LifeKeeper reliability platform for print services prevents downtime in the event of system, data or application failures.

"SteelEye's LifeKeeper provides our customers with the security they need to deploy reliable and cost-effective print server solutions in enterprise environments," said Boris Geller, VP of marketing at SteelEye. "Unavailable print services result in stalled business processes that result in dissatisfied customers and lost revenue, often amounting to millions of dollars per hour. The combination of LifeKeeper, Linux print services and Intel-based servers delivers maximum reliability and uptime that enable enterprise IT managers to lower total cost of ownership while providing a higher level of service."

Key features of the LifeKeeper enterprise reliability platform include an intuitive Java-based GUI, flexible multi-node configurations, packaged support for a variety of applications, databases, server and networking platforms in Linux, Windows NT and Solaris environments. As a result, enterprises and eBusinesses alike can get the benefit of a higher return on their investment by eliminating the need for idle stand-by servers, significantly reducing staffing requirements and improving time-to-market of new application deployments.
