«Customers can now live replicate their virtual workloads without the need to deploy any replication or orchestration components in their IaaS,» explained Kevin McNamara, CTO and Cofounder, Hive-IO. «This enhancement to our software is designed to help customers drastically reduce total cost of ownership and improve manageability and simplicity across their infrastructure.»

Hive-IO’s Workload Live Migration supports High Availability (HA) of infrastructure with:

  • Instant – zero downtime – failover
