Hi, my name is Jerry Melnick. I am chief technology officer at Marathon Technologies. Today we announced an expanded development and marketing agreement with Microsoft that underscores industry recognition of the growing need to eliminate downtime for your most important applications. Working together, Marathon and Microsoft will bring sophisticated fault tolerant availability technology to Windows Server and Hyper-V. In a nutshell, this collaboration is all about making it a lot easier for a lot more companies to get cost-effective, easy-to-deploy fault tolerance for their critical Windows applications. I wanted to use this blog post to answer two questions: why this announcement matters and how could it impact your role managing your Windows infrastructure. There are two key factors that are driving the increased need for Windows-based fault tolerant computing. First, more customers are relying on Windows Server to run their mission critical applications, and the number of these applications is increasing. Second, with the growing popularity of server virtualization (where applications are being consolidated onto fewer servers) the impact of downtime is often magnified. Fault tolerant computing is becoming more relevant than ever.
