Marathon Offers Low-Cost Fault Tolerance for VMs

The company's new EverRun VM software looks to offer fault tolerance and high availability for companies on a tight budget.

Marathon Technologies is looking to lock down virtual environments.

Marathon released the beta of its EverRun VM software March 24, with general availability slated for the end of April.
