Stratus Technologies Good as "Gold" as Microsoft Certified Partner

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2010) - Ten years after introducing the first Intel processor-based fault tolerant server architecture to bring industry-leading uptime to Microsoft Windows applications, Stratus Technologies continues its long association with the world's leading operating system provider by re-qualifying as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for the sixth consecutive year, the company announced today.

According to Microsoft, Gold Certified Partners are the top level of Microsoft partners and have access to the tools and support they need to assure their customers receive superior products and services. The Stratus® ftServer® family of servers for continuous availability provides up to 99.9999 percent uptime (approximately 32 seconds of unplanned downtime annually) for applications written for the Windows Server 2008, as well as other operating systems and virtualization software.

"Leveraging 30 years experience in fault-tolerant computing, Stratus has collaborated with Microsoft to provide valuable insight and validate fault tolerant-aware functionality in the Windows Server operating system," said Bill Laing, corporate vice president, Windows Server and Tools Microsoft Corporation. "This collaboration is designed to enable uninterrupted operation of Windows Server under the most extreme circumstances."

The complete range of Stratus products support Windows-based applications, with availability solutions for the SMB market to the enterprise data center. In addition to the three highly configurable ftServer system models, Stratus Avance™ software delivers exceptional availability at low cost to general-purpose x86 servers, creating a high-availability computing platform designed to prevent downtime and data loss.

"Our association with Microsoft is among our most prized corporate assets because of the exponential value it represents for our shared customers," said Roy Sanford, Stratus chief marketing officer. "Critical Windows-based applications running on a Stratus ftServer platform and our Avance software are customers' best protection against the disruption and punishing cost of downtime."
