Stratus Joins Rockwell at 25th Annual Automation Fair in Atlanta

Visit Stratus at booth #1463 to learn how Stratus is supporting the modernization of automation

MAYNARD, Mass., November 7, 2016Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of continuous availability solutions, today announced its sponsorship of the 25th annual Rockwell Automation Fair, being held at the Georgia World Congress Center on November 9-10, 2016.

“We are excited to be sponsoring the Rockwell Automation Fair again this year,” says EJ Schmidt, Vice President, Global and Corporate Marketing, Stratus Technologies. “The event is particularly timely for us as it coincides with the launch of our global Modernize Automation campaign. Aging operational technology (OT) infrastructure compels industrial companies to modernize their automation environment in order to increase plant efficiencies, benefit from application consolidation and provide higher returns on assets. With greater dependency on applications such as SCADA, HMI, Historian and MES, the elimination of unplanned downtime becomes even more critical making risk-free virtualization with Stratus an imperative for successful deployments.”

Visit Stratus at booth #1463 to find out how Stratus is supporting the modernization of automation and see live demos of the Stratus ftServer® – the proven fault-tolerant platform for preventing downtime, mitigating the risks of virtualization and providing an average life span of 6+ years. Visitors will also be given access to Stratus’ new Best Practices Kit for Modernizing Automation that covers tools and best practices to:

  • Eliminate unplanned downtime of SCADA and ICS assets
  • Increase performance with modernized OT
  • Optimize efficiency and drive plant innovation with virtualization
  • Develop a future-ready OT system to support IIoT and emerging applications

In addition to the live demonstrations at the Stratus booth, Frank Hill, Director of Business Development for Stratus, will deliver the highly anticipated track “Virtualization for the Connected

Enterprise” where he will be discussing how best to implement virtualization outside the datacenter to support a modernized infrastructure on your journey to a Connected Enterprise. The session will run on Wednesday, November 9th and Thursday, November 10th at 9am.
