Microsoft and Marathon Technologies Corporation today announced a development agreement designed to address the fault tolerant and high availability computing needs for business customers running Windows Server-based applications in enterprise information technology departments and data centers. The collaboration is focused in three areas:

  • Help provide customers who deploy Windows Server 2008 and Marathon everRun® software a seamless path to extend high availability protection to their critical applications.
  • Help provide Windows Server and Marathon everRun customers with the ability to select the appropriate level of availability, from failover clustering all the way up to system fault tolerance, for each application.
  • Help customers deploying a future version of Hyper-V, Microsoft’s hypervisor-based virtualization technology, to use Marathon everRun for a fault-tolerant virtual infrastructure.
