Availability performance for high-volume transactions and multi-channel financial services delivery

In today’s financial services industry, global, 24/7 consistent access with the fastest transaction processing possible is required and there is simply no time for system downtime or latency.  From trading applications that require processing in nanoseconds to credit and debit card authorizations that require transaction processing in real time, any small amount of system downtime could be the difference between you, your competition, and your bottom line.

In today’s fast paced world of micro-second trades, global online banking transactions, credit card authorizations and fraud detection, there is simply no time for systems to be down.

Ensure always-on availability of applications across retail banking, corporate banking and capital markets

Downtime prevention, minimal processing latency, and unmatched performance is why financial services companies around the world rely on Stratus.

  • Protect processing, transactional and administrative applications with always-on availability that works with standard operating systems
  • Prevent downtime, instead of recovering for it, by detecting potential problems and proactively taking action before downtime becomes an issue

All while reducing CPU utilization, without modifications to applications or the network.
