Marathon Technologies Tackles Server Downtime

Thursday Oct 7th 2010 by Enterprise Storage Staff

The company’s software-only offering brings fault tolerance and high availability to SMP and multi-core CPU servers in Windows environments.

Marathon Technologies’ recently released everRun MX software is said to keep Windows servers and applications up and running without the need for specialized, fault-tolerant hardware. InfoStor reports that the everRun MX software provides fault tolerance and high availability for symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) and multi-core CPU servers.


“Based on Marathon’s ComputeThru technology, everRun MX is designed to reduce the need for system/VM restarts and data recovery/restore (although the company does recommend implementing standard backup and recovery procedures.) The software can be implemented with direct-attached storage (DAS), eliminating the need to deploy a SAN for high availability purposes (although everRun MX can also be used in conjunction with a SAN).

“‘A lot of people approach high availability from a storage perspective, and deploy a SAN for fault tolerance,’ says Rob Ciampa, vice president of marketing at Marathon, ‘but a SAN is expensive and doesn’t provide full fault tolerance. everRun MX can eliminate the need for a SAN.’

“EverRun MX protects against all types of failure, including server (physical and virtual), software, I/O and storage.

“Storage-specific features of the software include safeguards to protect storage and data against corruption during mirror copies, and the ability to add disks with pre-existing data to a protected virtual machine (VM).”
