Overview

SafeKit Redundancy: Replication & Failover Cluster - The simplest high availability cluster with real-time replication and failover without shared disk

Evidian SafeKit allows to implement quickly a Milestone cluster with real-time file replication and automatic failover of the management services and the SQL database. The product is simple and avoids complexity of other failover clusters: no need for external storage, domain controller configuration or specific virtualization. A free trial of SafeKit and a milestone.safe high availability module are offered to implement the solution in less than 1 hour.

This clustering solution is recognized as the simplest to implement by our Milestone partners. It is also a complete solution that solves hardware failures (20% of problems) including the complete failure of a computer room, software failures (40% of problems) including smooth update server by server and human errors (40% of problems) thanks to its simplicity of configuration and administration.

Thus, Safekit solves at the same time business continuity and disaster recovery for Milestone XProtect with a real-time backup.

Key features

  • Redundancy with automatic failover on a secondary server, regardless of the Milestone version. Possibility to restart new services during failover.
  • Replicates in real-time all SQL versions including SQL Express (synchronous block-level file replication). Possibility to replicate new folders.
  • Cluster with no need for shared disk or specific virtualization. Detects not only hardware failures and network failures but also software failures.
  • Works with Windows for server and PC, with physical or virtual machines and in the Cloud.
  • No skill required, free trial, very simple installation and administration. Helps planned maintenance (hard or soft) with a click-button failover.
