NEC expects its EXPRESSCLUSTER software to continue playing a crucial part in keeping businesses in Asia Pacific operational at all times.
As organisations embrace BYOD and adopt big data technologies, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure that the "underlying IT infrastructure is mission critical to support every second of computing to process transactions or to capture data," said Elsa Wong, managing director of NEC Hong Kong.
EXPRESSCLUSTER thus maximises uptime for any critical system with its assured failure detection in a wide range of system resources including network, hardware, operating systems and applications. The software features automatic or quick application-level failover. Supporting clustered servers, the software monitors large data volumes to provide business continuity too.
To address the increasing demand for virtualisation, EXPRESSCLUSTER also supports various virtualisation technologies. The technologies include VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Linux KVM, Sun Solaris Container and IBM Power VM.
Currently deployed by more than 17,000 customers worldwide, EXPRESSCLUSTER has held the top spot in market share in monetary value in Asia Pacific for four consecutive years, according to IDC's Asia Pacific August 2013 report.
