SteelEye Technology, a California-based provider of business continuity solutions that focus on data protection, data replication and disaster recovery, has started shipping its Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer in addition to an existing product for VMware Infrastructure.
SteelEye Protection Suite delivers real-time LAN and WAN replication of XenServer virtual machines. It integrates with XenMotion and XenCenter to fully support manual movement of replicated VMs within a server pool. SteelEye Protection Suite is a host-based, storage repository replication solution that provides continuous data protection (CDP), change-only replication, integrated compression and a highly optimized replication engine.
SteelEye Protection Suite for XenServer is available immediately through SteelEye’s global network of value-added resellers and OEM partners. Customers that want to use the Protection Suite for a single migration of virtual machines can purchase a time-limited license for either 15 days ($495) or 90 days ($1,495).
Customers that wish to use SteelEye for continuous replication of their VMs, can make use of a permanent license that supports an unlimited number of VMs per XenServer host. SteelEye pricing is set at $2,495 for XenServer Standard Edition and at $3,995 for XenServer Enterprise or Platinum Edition.
SteelEye also announced it has joined the Citrix Ready Program, an initiative designed for organizations that have demonstrated product and solution compatibility with one or more Citrix products.
