SIOS AppKeeper Application Availability Solution Now Available in AWS Marketplace
Simple, Out-of-the-Box Solution for Application Monitoring and Automatic Recovery in Amazon EC2
SIOS Technology Corp., an industry pioneer in providing IT resilience through intelligent application availability, today announced the availability of SIOS AppKeeper in AWS Marketplace. Customers can now easily try, purchase, and deploy SIOS AppKeeper directly from AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
SIOS AppKeeper is a SaaS solution that continuously monitors and protects applications running in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) environments from system impairments and downtime while eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming manual intervention. When it detects a system impairment, SIOS AppKeeper automatically restarts operating system and application services, rebooting the complete Amazon EC2 instance when needed. SIOS AppKeeper can be used alone or to add recovery capabilities to an application performance monitoring (APM) tool.
“Today, IT teams are facing unprecedented pressure to deliver continuous availability of applications without adding significant cost or complexity to their environments,” said Masahiro Arai, Chief Operating Officer, SIOS Technology. “SIOS AppKeeper enables companies to meet this challenge by ensuring the availability of applications running in Amazon EC2 while eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming manual intervention. As an offering in AWS Marketplace, customers have the added convenience of being able to purchase and deploy SIOS AppKeeper with just a few clicks.”
“I feel that with SIOS AppKeeper, we are one step closer to an environment where I can stay calm even when too many people are trying to access our popular content,” said Mr. Yuichiro Fukabori of Hobby Japan, a publishing company that migrated to AWS in 2013. “The ability to enable a maintenance-free, care-free environment at low cost is SIOS AppKeeper’s advantage.”
“As our customers migrate more and more applications to the cloud, they are looking for flexibility in balancing the level of availability with costs across all of their applications,” said Chris Grusz, Director, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We’re delighted to welcome SIOS AppKeeper to AWS Marketplace and to provide our customers with more choice when performance changes occur.”
