Amazon EC2

SIOS Technology Corp. (http://www.us.sios.com/) launches an industry-first solution for automatic remediation of failures on Amazon EC2 instances thus enabling enterprise for immediate recovery from Amazon EC2 service failures. SIOS management of Amazon EC2 services is phenomenally wonderful. It monitors, troubleshoots, and restarts Amazon EC2 services or reboots Amazon EC2 instances without any requirements of manual intervention. Thus it maintains accessibility and meets SLAs in a well-organized manner on its own. SIOS is an industry leader in IT resilience solutions by means of intelligent application availability.

The launch of SIOS AppKeeper brings the industry’s first out-of-the-box solution that automatically responds to Amazon EC2 service alerts. It protects applications from any kind of service interruptions and downtime. At the same time, it eliminates the requirement of costly and time-consuming manual interventions. To test the product for your enterprise environment, SIOS Appkeeper is available with a free 14-day trial.

This free 14-day trial of SIOS Appkeeper is immediately available for end-users and channel partners. Organizations using any kind of application performance monitoring tool (APM) know how cumbersome is it to manage a storm of alerts. Most of the organizations adopting the public cloud have basically no other option than to use an application performance monitoring tool (APM). It is required to alert their DevOps teams to take appropriate action as and when any performance changes occur. The alert generally pinpoints the origin of the issue to facilitate manual remediation. But mostly due to a large number of alerts, finding the severest of the alerts and closing the issue becomes a very tedious task for the teams.

That is where SIOS Appkeeper becomes important in such scenarios. SIOS Appkeeper identifies and sends notifications for failures. It works very intuitively. Not only that but it also automatically attempts to restart failed services after their appropriate identification. If there is a requirement, it reboots the instance. This way, the tool addresses 85% of application service failures. The best thing is it works alone and it can be used with an APM tool. But imagine the amount of time and energies it saves by handling a major chunk of application service failures in an organization.

Actually, SIOS Appkeeper is not new for some parts of the world. It was first launched in the Japanese market at the beginning of 2017 by SIOS Technology Inc, Japan. The product is already quite popular in the APJ region and is widely used by end-users, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and System Integrators (Sis) there. It is being used to monitor and remediate AWS EC2 problems.

Nobuo Kita, chairman, president and CEO, SIOS Technology says, “In line with SIOS Technology, Inc.’s strategy of taking solutions successfully introduced in one market to larger, global markets, we are launching SIOS AppKeeper in the North American markets. A data says in the absence of SIOS Appkeeper, an organization with three AWS EC2 instances experiences AWS EC2 downtime at least once a month. On the other hand, with a similar kind of scenario and the organizations using SIOS Appkeeper reduce their downtime by 90%. That leverages their IT personnel to devote time on higher-value jobs and enhancement of Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Michael Bilancieri, SVP, Products, and Marketing, SIOS Technology says, “Every system and application has unique SLAs with regard to recovery times and risk tolerance and there is a need to balance costs with these SLAs. With AppKeeper, SIOS is extending its footprint in the cloud to provide greater availability and quicker recovery for those applications with higher risk tolerance and more flexible SLAs than more critical systems. Combined with SIOS LifeKeeper and DataKeeper HA clustering solutions, we now offer customers greater flexibility in dialing in the appropriate level of availability to balance costs with SLAs to provide the right level of availability for all of their applications.”

Fukabori Yuichiro, Public Relations, Business Administration Department, Hobby Japan says, “We cannot prevent setting errors or load issues.  But using SIOS AppKeeper is very good for my peace of mind. Our staff is not being called every time a system or server failure occurs. Our goal is to create a maintenance-free, low-cost environment and SIOS AppKeeper helps us do that.”

Masanori Yamaguchi, Cloud Integration Division, General Manager at ForgeVision says, “SIOS AppKeeper is an essential service for our AWS Operation Management Service. By providing SIOS AppKeeper, it is possible to monitor applications on AWS and automatically recover from failures at a reasonable price, and it is possible to provide both improved service quality and reduced operating costs to customers.”
