Stratus Extends Leadership in Building Management and Security With Always-On Infrastructure for Smart Buildings

New End-to-End Software Solution From Stratus Delivers the Most Reliable Foundation to Consolidate and Monitor Building Management and Security Environments

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2016) - Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of continuous availability solutions, today announced that it is extending its commitment to building management and security worldwide with the Stratus Always-On Infrastructure for Smart Buildings. 

The advent of Smart Buildings drives the need to monitor and control many separate systems ranging from security, to IT, to lighting, HVAC and more. Using a virtualized platform is the only cost effective foundation to do this, but virtualizing can also mean a single point of failure making fault-tolerant virtualization an imperative. Providing a proven, always-on foundation for Smart Buildings, Stratus' industry-leading downtime prevention software, everRun® Enterprise, combined with performance monitoring delivered through everRun Monitor powered by Sightline Assure® (everRun Monitor) enables a simple way to virtualize disparate multi-vendor solutions and easily monitor the entire building management network -- from servers to virtualized applications, to cameras, door locks and sensors.

"Smart Buildings provide increased cost efficiencies through environmental controls, as well enhanced protection and access controls to protect the people and assets inside. But enabling the transformation to Smart Buildings can be challenging," says Jason Andersen, vice president of business line management, Stratus Technologies. "This is due to the fact that most of the existing systems in place came from different best of breed vendors who all use different platforms. With the Stratus Always-On Infrastructure for Smart Buildings we are enabling a reliable and simple way to virtualize these disparate solutions and easily monitor the entire building management solution."

"Stratus is well known for providing the highest levels of availability when and where it really matters and offering practical solutions to address the needs of specific market segments," says Vernon Turner, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Systems and IDC Fellow for The Internet of Things. "This latest evolution of the Stratus software portfolio combines Stratus' always-on infrastructure with enhanced monitoring capabilities. The strong underlying infrastructure and visibility delivered by everRun Enterprise with everRun Monitor is addressing the challenge of managing the requirements for the consistent operation of Smart Buildings' disparate infrastructure while maximizing efficiency and reducing cost."

Stratus is providing the strong underlying infrastructure required to maximize effectiveness of Smart Buildings:

A virtualization ready platform. Enables operators to run multi-vendor applications with less hardware and protect them from downtime to further optimize efficiencies, simplify deployment and maximize investments.

A holistic solution centric view. A single pane of glass dashboard of the entire automation infrastructure (devices, applications and hardware) allows operators to identify system performance issues ahead of time and take immediate action to prevent downtime.

Availability without complexity. A highly available or fault-tolerant solution that is easy to deploy without any specialized skills and easy to service in the event of failure.
