LINBIT Announces New Solution For Data Replication

LINBIT, a provider of Linux storage mirroring technology, Tuesday announced a new solution for data replication in collaboration with Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (MLNX), a supplier of high-performance cloud networking solutions.

The technology integration, which highlights LINBIT's DRBD9 solution, provides mutual customers with the highest storage replication performance capabilities available. This enables customers to replicate more data in less time while accelerating and protecting both critical applications and data.

IT-savvy organizations require quick management of several simultaneous transactions across distributed networks. Data loss or delays due to server failures or other disasters is not an option for the mission critical applications run by these organizations.

Further, CPU overhead and networking software bottlenecks have traditionally plagued solution providers by limiting data replication performance. Critical transactions can only happen as fast as they can be replicated to another server.

LINBIT and Mellanox address this challenge by maneuvering around the native Linux bottlenecks within the TCP protocol.

Utilizing a protocol called Remote Direct Memory Access, LINBIT allows users to mitigate network performance bottlenecks, enhancing throughput by 100 percent, reducing latency, and decreasing CPU usage by 50 percent. This delivers faster application performance with better data protection and higher availability.
