In today’s always-on global economy, seconds matter. Downtime in critical business applications can have far-reaching economic, security and legal consequences. Recovering from a failure, no matter how fast, is simply no longer an option. What companies need today is failure prevention, not failure recovery. What they shouldn’t need, is a PhD to set it up.
Stratus offers quick and easy failure prevention with ftServer. Conventional technologies like clustering and virtualization-based HA do not prevent downtime, but rely on recovering from hardware or software failures. And this recovery time can vary, from minutes to hours. Only ftServer prevents the downtime of your critical business applications, ensuring continuous availability, even when your underlying hardware components fail.
ftServer is a fully integrated continuously available platform that helps companies maximize revenue, quality, and productivity:
Ensure application availability despite component failures. Ride through transient errors and power spikes that would take down other x86 systems
Ensure all transactions are processed. Protect the integrity of both committed and in-flight data
Get instant continuous availability without having to modify your ISV applications or write failover scripts
Save time and effort with self-monitoring hardware, automated parts replacement, and customer replaceable subsystems
Save up to 40% when you factor in acquisition, deployment, management, and unplanned downtime costs
ftServer’s unique combination of Stratus IP and industry standard components delivers dramatically simplified continuous availability:
Patented lockstep processing ensures no transactions are lost. Multi-path I/O failover prevents data corruption or data loss.
Redundant components are presented as a single system – only one OS or application is required, saving licensing fees.
Uses industry standard x86 processors, memory DIMMs, SSDs and HDDs. Supports standard shrink-wrapped OSs from Microsoft, Red Hat, and VMware.
Self-monitoring and self-diagnosing systems simplify issue management. Automated online parts replacement eliminates guesswork, and systems continue to run while being serviced.
Subsystems or components are designed to be replaced by OT generalists. CRUs are automatically re-synchronized when reinserted.
From the data center to the network’s edge, in conventional or virtualized environments, there’s an ftServer that’s right for you:
For stable, standalone applications in remote offices, branch offices, or shop floor locations
For rapidly changing or growing applications in regional offices, remote plants, or corporate data centers
