For years, SteelEye has been providing expert advice to its customers on the deployment of high availability and disaster recovery solutions. With this new packaged service offering, we can provide the next level in comprehensive consultation to ensure the highest quality of service

SteelEye (, a leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for multi-vendor IT infrastructures, today unveiled SteelEye Deployment Services to complement its extensive family of high availability, data replication and disaster recovery solutions. The new value-added service offerings provide customized installation, configuration, validation and administrator training for the implementation of SteelEye solutions within data centers.

With the flexibility to support the industry's widest range of application and server configurations, SteelEye Deployment Services are performed by a SteelEye Certified Engineer, in close collaboration with the organization's IT personnel, to install and validate a highly available data center infrastructure. The service offering also includes training to successfully ensure knowledge transfer and an understanding of best practices for ongoing maintenance of business-critical applications and systems.

SteelEye Deployment Services are delivered either on-site or remotely through a secure web connection into the organization's data center. For Maryland-based Carroll Hospital Center, the on-site option accelerated the seamless deployment of a disaster recovery solution with its McKesson systems on the backend, avoiding potential costly periods of downtime during the installation.

"Each minute of downtime, whether planned or unplanned, is critical for us and our patients. Having a reliable and robust IT infrastructure that ensures the highest availability of our electronic medical records system is imperative to maintaining our reputation as a leading medical center in the community," said Scott Livesay, network services technician for Carroll Hospital Center. "With SteelEye-certified engineers onsite to assist in the deployment of DataKeeper Cluster Edition for Windows, we built the optimal configuration with the ability to test all end cases and receive the training required for ongoing management of our comprehensive disaster recovery system. This helps to minimize the amount of downtime."

"For years, SteelEye has been providing expert advice to its customers on the deployment of high availability and disaster recovery solutions. With this new packaged service offering, we can provide the next level in comprehensive consultation to ensure the highest quality of service," said Bob Williamson, executive vice president of product management for SteelEye. "SteelEye Deployment Services are a testament to the company's commitment to being an essential business continuity partner to our customers."

SteelEye Certified Engineers are knowledgeable and trained in multiple operating environments to ensure coordinated and seamless implementations. SteelEye Deployment Services are available immediately to existing customers and prospects through SteelEye and deployment partner, Tangent Logic.

"Our holistic approach and expertise in a wide array of IT architecture solutions and services, combined with SteelEye's flexible solutions, facilitate the ideal high availability, data replication and disaster recovery deployments required to address today's growing business continuity requirements," said Gil Henzel, CEO for Tangent Logic.
