Marathon Redefines and Expands Windows Application Uptime Protection With New Offering

everRun MX Express Product Changes Availability Economics and Deployment Equation

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2011) - Marathon Technologies, the leading provider and innovator of application availability solutions, today announced the introduction of everRun MX Express, a new competitively-priced availability solution that provides broader and simpler implementation options for any organization looking to protect Windows applications from downtime. Unlike traditional high availability (HA) products and clustering solutions, everRun MX Express can withstand server component failures without any downtime.

everRun MX Express incorporates many of the key components of Marathon Technologies' flagship everRun MX Enterprise and packages them so organizations can deliver world-class availability more economically and on a broader scale. everRun MX Express fills the operational void between legacy HA solutions and total enterprise fault-tolerance by delivering synchronized physical redundancy among mission-critical servers. Key highlights of everRun MX Express:

  • Ensures uptime. Unlike traditional high availability products and clustering solutions, everRun MX Express can withstand disk and network failures without the loss of single compute cycle or bit of data.
  • Works with more servers. everRun MX Express supports a wide and diverse array of server configurations, allowing an economically-feasible upgrade path from legacy high availability products.
  • Deploys easily. There's no need to instrument complex availability hooks into applications because everRun MX Express protects all Windows-based applications without any modifications or scripting.
  • Is cost-effective. everRun MX Express is less expensive than inferior HA solutions and is a fraction of the total cost of clusters, making it a wise choice for small organizations or budget-conscious larger firms.
  • Upgrades seamlessly. For organizations that need even-higher availability service levels, everRun MX Express can be upgraded in minutes to everRun MX Enterprise, the world's leading software-based solution for application availability.

"Our unique capability to deliver world-class availability in a seamless, software-based solution allows our customers to provide unprecedented levels of application uptime no matter what organizational, economic, or environmental constraints they may face," said Jerry Melnick, CTO of Marathon Technologies. "everRun MX Express democratizes availability by delivering capabilities that are superior, simpler and more economical than traditional high availability products and clusters."
