Winchester Systems Inc., has announced a new line of high availability servers. The new FlashServer HA-4000 Series offers two servers in one unit that automatically failover and provide 99.999% system uptime without the need for complex clustering software in Windows, Linux and VMware environments.


"FlashServer HA Redundant Failover Servers provide an innovative solution to address planned and unplanned downtime for critical applications. FlashServer HA delivers continuous uptime through its fully redundant modular hardware featuring Intel Xeon processors with up to six cores and up to 96 GB memory each. These servers provide continuous availability through hardware redundancy in all components: CPU, memory, motherboards, I/O, hard disk drives, power supplies and cooling fans. Two servers in one unit run applications simultaneously so if one fails, the other takes over immediately with no lost data and no delays common to cluster solutions. Only one set of software licenses is needed. No downtime is needed for routine operating system and application updates as one server at a time can be taken off-line and updated.

"Failover with the FlashServer HA is automatic and transparent to the OS, virtualization software, applications, and users. The environment can survive a drive, motherboard, CPU, RAM, bus, power supply and fan failure. The result is a realizable 99.999% uptime without clustering. For the utmost in reliability and to protect against both hardware and software failures, FlashServer HA servers work exceeding well in cluster environments - delivering a double layer of protection from fault tolerant servers and cluster failover. Plus, clustering provides load balancing and other benefits."
