Denny Lane dispells 3 myths about high availability servers, comparing our legacy 1982 products to our newest ftserver. The fault tolerant solutions are smaller, less expensive, and more up-to-date than ever, and run Linux, VMware, Windows, and even support both private and public cloud.
While Stratus has been a global leader in Uptime Assurance for Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server customers for many years, recent performance advances in Xeon server technology and related storage subsystems has extended Stratus well into the world of legacy UNIX systems and databases. Coupled with SQL Server 2008R2, an exciting new market opportunity has developed – Mission Critical SQL running on Stratus ftServers. Now you can learn how to deploy a more available mission critical Windows/SQL based solution for less than a comparable UNIX alternative such as Oracle RAC. Learn how Stratus’s Uptime Assurance extends the HA Failover Clustering options for SQL and provide a superior solution.
