How to Implement a Simpler Approach to Microsoft SharePoint High Availability

Join Marathon Technologies' Live Webcast and Learn a Simplified, Cost-Effective Approach to SharePoint High Availability

LITTLETON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/09 -- Increasingly, Microsoft® SharePoint Server implementations are now critical applications in which any downtime can cause significant business disruptions and productivity losses. But Microsoft's solution for high availability protection requires a six-server SharePoint farm that still leaves the indexing role unprotected. Marathon Technologies will explain a simplified approach to SharePoint high availability that only requires two servers and reliably protects the whole SharePoint environment -- including the indexing service.

In this live webcast, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer Tom Reed will highlight:

-- How SharePoint can be fully protected, using as few as two servers

-- How Marathon's everRun® automated high availability software reliably protects all three architecture tiers -- including the indexing service

-- A real-world SharePoint availability deployment at a large financial services company in Canada

SharePoint implementations follow a three-tier architectural model with a front-end Web server based on Internet Information Services (IIS), a middle-tier application server based on SharePoint Server roles and a back-end database server based on SQL Server. Each of these tiers must be protected from data loss, corruption, site failures or disasters. Marathon's everRun software reliably protects all elements of the three tiers and delivers higher levels of availability than traditional failover solutions.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is an integrated suite of server capabilities that can help companies improve organizational effectiveness by providing comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating shared business processes, and facilitating information-sharing across boundaries for better business insight.
