VIENNA, Austria and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ — Dolphin Interconnect Solutions and Linbit HA Solutions announced today that they have entered into a cooperative selling partnership. Targeting overlapping application markets, the partnership gives each company an expanded reach and increased value proposition to its customers and prospects.

The partnership delivers immediate benefits to database users requiring high availability while maintaining low application latency and high throughput. Both companies' technologies are already a fixture among users of the web's most popular database, MySQL. The newly available combined solution, DRBD for Dolphin Express, now turns the MySQL/Linbit DRBD/Dolphin Express bundle into an extremely versatile powerhouse for database high availability.

The powerful customer value of DRBD for Dolphin Express extends a long way beyond LAMP and MySQL — and even beyond databases. The shared-nothing storage replication solution, DRBD for Dolphin Express is equally well-suited for highly available virtualization, streaming media content storage or email and collaboration services, and many more.

Tim Miller, CEO of Dolphin Interconnect Solutions, comments that "We are impressed with Linbit's success over the past years and we are very excited about the opportunities this partnership can drive. The joint unique solution proves Dolphin's commitment to continue innovative development focusing on the needs of users of enterprise database and web applications. Together with Linbit we will further extend our reach to virtualization, large-scale data storage, and other fields."

Linbit has established itself as a leader in high availability solutions through its core shared-nothing storage replication technology, DRBD(R). Since Linbit's launch in 2001, they have built a reputation of cost effective, open source replication solutions. Today, DRBD has been adopted in thousands of application environments. This partnership provides an opportunity for new and existing DRBD customers to achieve the highest possible levels of performance with DRBD.

Gerhard Sternath, CEO of Linbit, added that "Dolphin is a fantastic match for us. This partnership gives our customers the option of taking our existing software technology and combining it with Dolphin's high-performance hardware offering." He goes on to say that Linbit has "always provided lightweight, cost-effective high availability to customers. Now it's lightweight, cost-effective high availability with a punch. We have been extremely satisfied with Dolphin's technical competence in the past, and are excited to have this partnership take our cooperation to a new level."

Dolphin's high-performance interconnect solution, Dolphin Express, dramatically increases application performance in today's demanding enterprise environments. Through a low latency, high bandwidth interconnect hardware combined with software optimized to minimize or eliminate the overhead in communication protocols like TCP/IP, Dolphin has increased throughput and lowered response time by as much as 10x compared to traditional approaches. When coupled with DRBD, Dolphin Express delivers significant improvements in transaction throughput and latency, providing the best possible combination of performance, scalability and application security for critical and demanding application environments.
