[From IBM]

ARMONK, NY and Toronto, ON - September 28, 2006 - IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Avokia Inc., today announced they have developed a long-range database clustering technology, which is the first of its kind to link active data servers located thousands of miles apart.

The technology, called “active-active” database clustering, describes a process by which all of an organization’s information management systems are kept online, regardless of their physical location, ensuring continuous availability of critical business information. This solution allows companies to take idle systems traditionally used for backup and devote them to production tasks.
