DH2i has announced the general availability launch of DxEnterprise (DxE) version 22 (v22) featuring a new container sidecar to enable application-level high availability clustering for stateful containers in Kubernetes (K8s).
Today, Kubernetes is one of the world’s leading open-source systems for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The DxE v22 sidecar delivers a separate container that can run alongside an application container in a Kubernetes pod. The primary application can run independently in one container while the DxE sidecar hosts complementary high availability clustering services. This independence can help isolate failures.
“With the DxE v22 sidecar, database architects and developers can enhance and extend the functionality of their K8s environment. For instance, the DxE sidecar enables users to create highly resilient zero downtime application-level clusters that span K8 pods,” said Don Boxley, CEO and Co-Founder, DH2i. “In addition, the DxE sidecar uniquely provides smart high availability clustering services to the application container(s) necessary for mission-critical applications.”
