Stratus Delivers on Promise to Accelerate Software-Defined Availability for Enterprise Customers

everRun Enterprise Extends Beyond the Physical Data Center to Enable Highly Available, Fault-Tolerant Systems Ensuring Business Continuity Without Compromising Ease of Use and Affordability

MAYNARD, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of availability solutions, today announced the general availability of two anticipated additions to everRun® Enterprise, its next-generation software-based availability solution -- selectable availability and Split-site Cross Campus downtime prevention. Enterprises now have the flexibility of choosing between fault-tolerant or high availability levels of protection on the same physical server for their business critical applications. These same levels of availability can be achieved across geographically separated locations to mitigate the risk of physical site or application failures using synchronous replication. Application monitoring extends availability and management capabilities up and down the entire stack simplifying the diagnosis and remediation of events and interruptions.

"Our continued investment in software-based availability is accelerating our customers' access to enhanced capabilities essential for maintaining their business operations across the globe," said Nigel Dessau, Chief Marketing Officer at Stratus Technologies. "The new features in everRun Enterprise broaden the fault-tolerance our customers have come to expect from a proven, 30-year veteran. Now, with a flexible and more affordable software approach, customers can more easily deliver and manage application availability across sites, making our offering truly differentiated and extremely valuable to the bottom line for our customers."

Dessau added, "We are committed to further developing our software-defined portfolio and advancing the future of availability so customers can continue to leverage the benefits of virtualized environments and adopt cloud without the inherent reliability and business risks of application downtime."

everRun Enterprise is designed to keep Windows® and Linux™ applications up and running continuously without changes to applications or in-flight data loss. It is compatible with a wide range of platforms, is easy to implement and includes centralized management tools for an all-encompassing view of the entire stack -- from bare metal to the applications. The software runs on industry-standard Intel-based x86 servers without the need for specialized IT skills. Unlike other availability solutions, everRun Enterprise prevents downtime from occurring rather than merely recovering from it -- a difference that can have a significant impact on revenues, costs and customer satisfaction.

everRun Enterprise includes:

  • Split-site Cross Campus - provides application fault tolerance across geographically separated sites

  • High Availability or Fault-Tolerant protection - for symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) and multi-core workloads

  • Stratus One View console* - enables users to build, designate, deploy, monitor and manage everRun instances and virtual machines from one centralized location

  • Availability Engine - achieves always-on availability with applications mirrored in two virtual machines with no data loss or machine restarts

  • System Watchdog and Alerting Service - constantly monitors systems and automatically sends a system-level notification should a fault occur

  • Application Monitoring - reduces downtime as well as simplifies, accelerates and optimizes performance by providing visibility across IT environments and delivering automatic diagnosis

  • Disaster Recovery* - mitigates the impact disaster has on the bottom line by using built-in asynchronous replication between sites over a wide area network connection

*Available in next point release

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
