Kerio MailServer is rock solid but does not currently offer their own cluster model to protect against hardware failure
Cary, NC (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Inftek, a certified partner of Kerio Technologies, announces GetSync'd, a professional synchronized email service featuring clustered Kerio MailServers. GetSync'd combines the functionality of Kerio MailServer with VMWare technology for a high-powered alternative to Hosted Microsoft Exchange.
Kerio MailServer is an affordable groupware solution that enables users to share contacts and calendars and access email from any computer, iPhone, or smartphone with an Internet connection. To eliminate risk associated with single server implementations, InfTek has utilized VMWare High Availability technology to cluster multiple instances of Kerio MailServers and insure data accessibility.
"Kerio MailServer is rock solid but does not currently offer their own cluster model to protect against hardware failure," said Mike Schaffner, CTO of InfTek, Inc. "When installed on a VMWare server farm, one of the other servers in the high availability cluster will pick up the processing and allow the end user to not notice any significant downtime."
The Kerio MailServer cluster operates on the VMWare ESX platform, which replicates data on multiple servers and enables the connection to be transferred to another server if the current server goes down for any reason. It takes the server approximately 54 seconds to complete the transfer, ensuring that the end user sees virtually no downtime. In addition, every server in the Kerio MailServer cluster has redundant connections and power sources, enabling another connection or power source to quickly take over should a problem arise.
"Building infrastructure for near-zero downtime email is cost prohibitive for many businesses," said James Gudeli, vice president of Business Development for Kerio. "InfTek's Get Sync'd solution is a great option for maximizing email availability while minimizing IT expense."
Inftek's Disaster Recovery option permits all of the data to be replicated between servers in different physical data center locations. InfTek has server locations in both Dallas and Boston, ensuring that if power loss or a natural disaster brings servers down in one location, servers in the other location will take over in under a minute. The redundancy and immediate disaster recovery features of the Kerio MailServer cluster make it an affordable alternative to Microsoft Exchange.
"Our High Availability Kerio MailServer offerings are a cost effective, powerful, messaging solution ideal for tech-savvy businesses that need to be able to share information reliably without the threat of downtime," said Scott Bowen, COO of InfTek, Inc.
