NEC and Stratus Extend Partnership on Next Generation Fault Tolerant Computing

Strategic agreement builds on long-standing relationship delivering simple, protected, autonomous computing for reliably running critical applications in data centers and at the edge

MAYNARD, Mass. — August 4, 2022 — Stratus Technologies, a global leader in simplified, protected, and autonomous Edge Computing, today announced an agreement with NEC Corporation extending their partnership in bringing next generation fault-tolerant computing platforms to market. This agreement follows decades of collaboration on the development of and delivery of the Stratus ftServer®, a fully integrated continuously available computing platform, and the NEC Express5800 Enterprise Server for large-scale virtualization and database workloads.

“Our long-standing relationship with Stratus has resulted in valuable fault tolerant servers that our customers and partners rely on to keep their businesses up and running. We expect Stratus’ next generation fault tolerant technology will create more reliable computing capabilities with greater levels of functionality, serviceability and performance,” stated Kazunori Sudo, Executive Vice President of NEC Corporation. “Our continued partnership will bring further support to customers’ value creation that benefits the digitalization of our societies.”

“Stratus and NEC have a common history of success in helping customers simplify, protect and automate their digitally transforming operations. Since 1981, Stratus has maintained an obsession-like focus on ensuring the availability of business-critical applications for customers globally. NEC has been a steadfast partner,” explained Dave Laurello, Chairman, President and CEO of Stratus.  “Our roadmap brings together the best technology to further reduce the complexity and risk of the computing infrastructures that will be needed in the future, whether in a data center or an edge environment.”

As demands on digital operations continue to intensify, businesses will need more efficient and secure ways to consolidate software applications within single, fault tolerant platforms that run those applications continuously with no loss of data due to unplanned or planned downtime. Additionally, requirements will grow for application transparency, health monitoring, and simplified deployment, support and maintenance, among other capabilities within enterprise, regional and local data centers, such as financial services and telecommunications, as well as edge operations, such as Oil & Gas terminals, train stations, smart buildings, manufacturing floors, and retail stores.
