DH2i Launches DxEnterprise Container Management for Windows Server

DH2i has released DxEnterprise, application container management software for Microsoft Windows Server mid-to-enterprise class applications and workloads.

According to the company, DxEnterprise decouples Windows Server application instances from a physical server, virtual machine (VM) or cloud server through a container called a virtual host (Vhost). Each Vhost consists of a logical computer name, an associated IP address, Vhost management metadata and portable native NTFS volumes, according to information from the company. The containers share an instance of Windows Server and then are stacked on virtual or physical servers.

The company claims this "containerization" of Windows Server application instances can provide numerous benefits, including fast and transparent application portability, hyperscale cloud-like agility and ensured high availability, as well as easier provisioning, testing, deployment and management of applications.

Key features of DxEnterprise include:

  • Lightweight shared operating system Vhost technology;
  • Protection from infrastructure, operating system and application faults;
  • Quality of service controls and automation to monitor application performance;
  • Multiple workflow insertion points for conditional logic coordination with event handling;
  • Resource management within and between containers;
  • Alerts if workloads fail to meet performance thresholds;
  • Dependency coordination and failover; and
  • Support for future Windows-based application containers.

Further information about DxEnterprise can be found on DH2i's site.
