Operating Systems for Stratus Fault-Tolerant Servers

OpenVOS: Stratus Virtual Operating System

Stratus servers running the VOS operating system have long been valued for their ability to deliver industry-leading uptime. Today Stratus offers OpenVOS. OpenVOS is a unified release of VOS that runs on all three generations of ftServer V Series hardware. OpenVOS is POSIX compliant and provides industry standard development tools; gcc, g++, gdb, bash shell, Perl and many others. The net results are UNIX and LINUX programmers can be productive immediately programming on V Series platforms.

OpenVOS 17.2 is the foundation that allows you to port or build open system tools and applications just like you would on any industry standard UNIX or LINUX platform. Perfected by two decades of engineering enhancements, OpenVOS works seamlessly and transparently with the availability, reliability, and serviceability features built into every V Series system, ensuring continuous availability for mission-critical applications.

As key components of Stratus' availability strategy, OpenVOS and the Stratus fault-tolerant architecture were expressly designed to complement and strengthen each other. Together, they provide maximum availability and performance, even in the face of failure and reconfiguration.
