Stratus ftServer 6300 System Achieves Outstanding Performance on Two-Tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark

ftServer System Delivers Breakthrough Speed and Uptime to Datacenter ERP Applications

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) -  Stratus Technologies announced today that the Stratus® ftServer® 6300 system achieved outstanding performance results on the two-tier SAP® Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark. Testing was performed using Microsoft® Windows® Server 2008 Enterprise Edition and SQL Server™ 2008 on a two-socket quad-core Intel® Xeon® 5570 ftServer 6300 system using the SAP enhancement package 4 for the SAP ERP application Release 6.0 to achieve results of 2,764 SAP SD benchmark users and 15,080 SAPS. The Stratus server is also distinguished by the fact that it provides more than 99.999 percent platform availability for superior uptime.

The Stratus ftServer eliminates the need for complex server clustering for uptime. The fault-tolerant architecture features complete system redundancy in a standard rack enclosure. Paired components and subsystems operate in complete lockstep to create a single-image server. Plug-and-play components simplify maintenance, allowing even non-technical staff to maintain the platform. Availability and operational simplicity translate into a fast return on investment.

"Manufacturers around the globe striving to achieve operational excellence and positive business impact have leveraged Stratus servers for use with SAP solutions with exceptional results," said Frank Hill, Stratus Director of SAP Alliance. "The ftServer 6300 system delivers 'always-on' dependability and operational simplicity to enterprise-level ERP workloads."

The benchmark results referenced are current as of March 15, 2010 (certification number 2010006). Results fully comply with the SAP benchmark regulations and have been audited and certified by SAP AG. For the latest results, visit
