Stratus Technologies innovative design eliminates the operational complexity and high costs inherent in approaches such as clusters — making the industry’s ultimate level of uptime protection more practical and more affordable than ever.
Traditional clusters are designed for failure, Stratus is designed not to fail in the first place.
Stratus innovations are the result of more than twenty-five years’ experience of assuring uptime for the world’s most demanding applications.
Stratus uses lockstep technology with replicated, fault-tolerant hardware components that process the same instructions at the same time. In the event of a component malfunction, the additional component provides an active spare that continues normal operation and completely averts system downtime.
Whilst other servers may offer duplicated power supplies, fans, and disk drives, only Stratus provides protection for core system components including motherboards, processors, memory, I/O buses, and I/O adapters.
