Stratus ftServer: Continuous availability made easy

Simple to deploy, simple to manage, simple to service

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 Features

ftServer’s unique combination of Stratus IP and industry standard components delivers dramatically
simplified continuous availability:

Automated Uptime Layer

Patented lockstep processing ensures no transactions are lost. Multi-path I/O failover prevents data corruption or data loss.

Single system with fully duplexed hardware

Redundant components are presented as a single system – only one OS or application is required, saving licensing fees.

Versatile industry standard platform

Uses industry standard x86 processors, memory DIMMs, SSDs and HDDs. Supports standard shrink-wrapped OSs from Microsoft, Red Hat, and VMware.

Active service architecture

Self-monitoring and self-diagnosing systems simplify issue management. Automated online parts replacement eliminates guesswork, and systems continue to run while being serviced.

Hot-swappable customer
replaceable units (CRU)

Subsystems or components are designed to be easily replaced.
CRUs are automatically re-synchronized when reinserted.
