Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) deal with emergencies 24/7/365 – system downtime shouldn’t be one of them

Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and first responders rely on sophisticated technology to protect lives and property. So when it comes to your Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Records Management Systems (RMS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), next-generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) systems and mobile communications, there’s no time for downtime.

It takes more than just recovering as fast as possible after a failure has occurred. When lives are on the line, you need to detect and prevent failures before they happen. That’s exactly what Stratus does for you. Stratus keeps all your applications up and running 24/7/365, enabling you to respond without fail. We offer a range of flexible high availability solutions – software, platform and services – that are easy to deploy and manage, and backed by a support structure with a 30-year track record of success. Our solutions can be rapidly deployed in your chosen environment – physical, virtualized or cloud – without changes to your applications.

We are in the job of saving lives, and time in that case is very fundamental. We need a system which never fails. That’s why we deployed the Stratus Technologies [solution].
