Sanbolic Melio for Microsoft SQL Server Clustering.Sanbolic <http://www.sanbolic.com/>A[R], the market leader in data management, has announced that its Sanbolic Melio <http://www.sanbolic.com/products.htm> software for Microsoft SQL Server A relational DBMS from Microsoft that is a major component of the Windows Server System. It is Microsoft's high-end client/server database and is closely integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio and the Microsoft Office System. Clustering is featured in a new Intel Enabled Solution Acceleration Alliance (ESAA) recipe. The recipe, or solution guide, outlines how to get the most out of clustering Microsoft SQL Server. on Intel Server platforms.
Intel ESAA gives resellers and direct Intel OEMs access to a wide range of pre-validated configuration guides ("recipes") jointly developed by Intel and independent hardware and software vendors (IxVs). Intel resellers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Intermediate eXperimental Vehicles, as well as end users for whom the solutions are intended, will find the new recipe, the Sanbolic Melio and Microsoft SQL SQL

Computer programming language used for retrieving records or parts of records in databases and performing various calculations before displaying the results. 2008R2 Guide, well-timed as organizations continue to struggle with the high cost and complexity of configuring, managing and protecting large SQL Server An earlier relational DBMS from Sybase and from Microsoft. Sybase introduced SQL Server in 1988 for various Unix versions. In that same year, with help from IBM, Sybase created an OS/2 version that Microsoft licensed and branded as Microsoft SQL Server. implementations. With its unique and extensive capabilities, Sanbolic's Melio data management platform helps organizations overcome these challenges, which are so often rooted in traditional storage architectures that require multiple volumes in order to achieve granular granular /gran·u·lar/ (gran´u-lar) made up of or marked by presence of granules or grains.
1. Composed or appearing to be composed of granules or grains.
2. failover in clustered SQL Server deployments. By enabling optimal storage utilization, simplified database management (i.e., eliminating database sprawl), live storage/data migration, and quality of service (QoS) that ensures high performance of critical SQL Server workloads, Melio delivers a cost-effective solution for SQL Server consolidation and high availability Also called "RAS" (reliability, availability, serviceability) or "fault resilient," it refers to a multiprocessing system that can quickly recover from a failure. There may be a minute or two of downtime while one system switches over to another, but processing will continue. in physical, virtual and mixed environments.
"We included Sanbolic's Melio data management software as a key component in the 'Sanbolic Melio and Microsoft SQL 2008R2 Guide' guide because its industry-unique features and functionality help users overcome the numerous challenges associated with SQL Server clustering while delivering enhanced storage performance and availability, as well as providing the ability to scale out, not just up," said Rick Cecil, Intel ESAA Architect at Intel
"Providing active-active access to storage eliminates the need for individual server/storage silos, thereby enhancing both server and storage utilization while reducing the management burden customers face when supporting clustered SQL Server environments. Cluster-wide data protection, granular performance management and the ability to scale deployments seamlessly offers organizations additional capabilities for protecting, managing and scaling their SQL Server environments," stated Andy Melmed, Director of Enterprise Solutions at Sanbolic <http://www.sanbolic.com/>. "Sanbolic is delighted to have once again worked with IntelA[R] to develop another ESAA recipe. It is a seal of approval for which we are understandably proud."
