Stratus Announces Next Generation Solutions for Expanding Market for Always-On Availability

Stratus Responds to Growing Customer Needs for Varying Levels of Human Touch From the Data Center Core to the Network Edge

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of availability solutions, today announced the next generation of its everRun® software and ftServer® platform solutions to meet growing customer demand for always-on availability. With increased storage and processing power, these latest versions support a variety of application needs from the data center core to the network edge -- transaction-centric applications such as credit card payments requiring high human touch at the core, low touch data-centric industrial automation applications at the edge, and the emerging wave of command-centric applications such as smart highways and smart energy grids that require no touch.

"Stratus has built its reputation delivering availability systems for transactional processing applications that absolutely can't go down. And while there is still great demand for our solutions in markets such as financial services and telecom, we're seeing new waves of availability emerging with the rise of big data, industrial automation and IoT technologies," said Jason Andersen, vice president of business line management, Stratus. "As we look at future technological developments, from driverless cars to 5G mobile networks, we will see fewer people manually operating these applications, and a rise in automation and intelligence. The need to enable an always-on infrastructure in this new, 'no human touch' world, will be more critical than ever, as system failure could be devastating."
