DH2i, a leading provider of always-secure and always-on IT infrastructure solutions, announces the general availability launch of DxEnterprise (DxE) version 22 (v22) featuring a new container sidecar to enable application-level high availability clustering for stateful containers in Kubernetes (K8s).
Kubernetes is one of the world’s leading open-source systems for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications. The DxE v22 sidecar delivers a separate container that can run alongside an application container in a Kubernetes pod. For database architects and developers, the DxE sidecar delivers three key deployment benefits:
- Isolation – The primary application can run independently in one container while the DxE sidecar hosts complementary high-availability clustering services. This independence can help isolate failures.
- Quick deployment – It’s easy to deploy a DxE sidecar container – certainly easier to build and maintain a combined primary application/DxE container image.
- Scalability – Once you have the DxE sidecar containers in place, it’s easy to scale up to support as many pods as needed.
“With the DxE v22 sidecar, database architects and developers can enhance and extend the functionality of their K8s environment. For instance, the DxE sidecar enables users to create highly resilient Zero downtime application-level clusters that span K8 pods,” said Don Boxley, CEO and co-founder, DH2i. “In addition, the DxE sidecar uniquely provides smart high availability clustering services to the application container(s) necessary for mission-critical applications.”
DxEnterprise support for containers accelerates an enterprise’s digital transformation by speeding the adoption of highly available stateful containers. DxEnterprise provides SQL Server Availability Group (AG) support for SQL Server containers, including for Kubernetes clusters.
It enables customers to deploy stateful containers to create applications while it improves operations with near-zero RTO to deliver better products and services more efficiently at a lower cost.
Additionally, it helps organizations generate revenue streams by enabling them to build distributed Kubernetes AG clusters across availability zones/regions, resulting in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments that can adapt to changes in market conditions and consumer preferences.
