HCL Infosystems Ltd., India’s premier information enabling and integration company, has become the first in the country to complete the testing of its fault tolerant solutions for Oracle Database with Real Application Clusters (RAC) on Red Hat Linux Advanced Servers. The solutions, tested on HCL’s 64 Bit Itanium Processor based servers, ensures continuous access of Data to the end users, in a clustered environment, even after failure of one of the nodes in the cluster. This makes HCL Insys foray into this crucial field in Enterprise Computing.
The HCL laboratory had recently concluded tests of high application solutions for Xeon processors. The Itanium based servers used this time employ 64-bit processing, the key features of which are a high amount of memory, larger floating-point registers (used for graphical & designing applications), massive parallelism on the processor and greater processor resources inbuilt into the processor core. The result is an enhanced performance as the system can make use of the 64-bit architecture of the operating systems available today.
Talking about the achievement, Mr George Paul, Vice President Marketing, HCL Infosystems Limited, said, “Our commitment to continually look for partnering with our clients for evolving solutions which enhance and maximize the value of investments that companies make in IT is the reasoning behind the continuous tests and initiatives. Itanium servers are ideally meant to address high-end database requirements of massive databases or the cluster requirements of high performance computing, making them ideal for small and medium enterprises across the country.
