Quickly transform your applications into continuously available solutions with customized application availability, accelerating time to revenue

Most enterprises today run a variety of mixed workloads, with different levels of business criticality. Smarter organizations are sizing and designing their IT infrastructure to match the availability requirements of their applications, and paying for just what they need. Fault-tolerant systems for those applications that must run 24x7x365. Highly available systems where up to 4 hours of downtime might be acceptable.

everRun simplifies the process of meeting your changing availability requirements. A highly versatile, yet affordable continuously available software solution, everRun combined with industry standard x86 systems quickly and easily protects your virtualized workloads and data. Use everRun to rapidly and cost effectively deliver the levels of continuous availability you need, when and where you need them.
