NEC ExpressCluster X LAN Lowers TCO of High Availability Solutions for Critical Linux and Windows Applications and Data


Enhanced Features of ExpressCluster X LAN Reduce Overhead and Downtime, Ease Deployment and Management

Santa Clara, Calif.- NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, today announced the ExpressCluster® X LAN Edition supporting both Linux® and Microsoft® Windows®. ExpressCluster X is NEC’s next-generation family of integrated application and disaster recovery software designed to empower businesses and organizations with high availability solutions for applications and data that need to be up and running 24 hours a day.

NEC ExpressCluster X LAN’s broad-based application and operating system support enables a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for high availability solutions. In addition, support of software-based transactional data mirroring eliminates the need for proprietary storage hardware systems, which further lowers TCO.

NEC’s ExpressCluster X LAN boasts:
Web-based management of either standardized or heterogeneous environments for easy, remote administration and increased productivity;
granular levels of resource control enabling a reduction in planned downtime;
enhanced data mirroring for faster, easier and lower cost system configurations;
reduced cluster partition requirements with flexible partition placement for reduced solution deployment overhead;
synchronous data mirroring with write order preservation and incremental synchronization to support fast data synchronization; and
enhanced application support, including Microsoft Windows Exchange Standard Edition.

“Virtualization and consolidation are accelerating in the marketplace, but many businesses haven’t yet faced challenges of unplanned downtime for applications running in a virtualized environment,” said Jean Bozman, research vice president, IDC. “NEC’s ExpressCluster X LAN, with its built-in cluster-enablement and integrated management for a broad base of ISV applications, provides a high availability (HA) software solution that reduces the need for custom scripting to protect production ISV applications, addressing customers’ operational costs.”

As the newest addition to an award-winning product line, ExpressCluster X LAN provides a single, consistent high availability management solution for standard e-commerce, email, database, Web and file systems running on physical and virtual server platforms.

“Organizations need total system protection - for both their applications and their data,” said George Wu, director of software business for NEC Corporation of America’s IT Platform Group. “ExpressCluster X LAN is an integrated solution enhanced to provide organizations with superior performance, usability, and cost of ownership in a high availability solution.”

NEC ExpressCluster X LAN on Windows is available immediately and NEC ExpressCluster X LAN for Linux will be available in September. Product licenses start at $3,750 per physical server.
