In today’s always-on global economy, just in time manufacturing every second matters.
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. Can your operations survive several hours of downtime every year?
Conventional technologies such as clustering and virtualisation-based High Availability (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 Stratus prevents the downtime of your critical business applications, ensuring continuous availability, even when your underlying hardware components fail.
Modern automation is all about visualisation, it is common to have computers running in many locations within a production facility. Stratus FT servers and ZTC Edge in conjunction with zero client and ThinManager allows control and security in a sustainable and scalable platform regardless of the size of your industrial environment.
There are significant cost savings when deploying purpose-built fault tolerant solutions versus less resilient and more complex SQL clustering solutions. When comparing clustered Active/Active availability groups using SQL Enterprise, the monetary impact can be eye watering. Even when utilizing Active/Passive configurations these are often higher than when you deploy a single Stratus ftServer.
Why settle for less resilience? Benefit from ftServer resilience and save money at the same time.
What companies need today is failure prevention, not failure recovery. Ensuring 5 Nines Uptime (99.999%) of System Availability for Critical Applications
ftServers eliminate the complexity and costs of deploying and managing alternative high-availability and virtualisation software solutions, you won’t need a PhD to set it up
A zero-touch, reliable, secure, highly automated computing platform, specifically designed for industrial edge environments. Purpose-built for OT, ztC Edge is easy to set up, configure and manage with built in virtualisation and availability layer, automated data protection and application recovery
ztC Edge significantly reduces the dependence on IT for virtualised computing at the edge. Its self-protecting and self-monitoring features help reduce unplanned downtime and ensure the continuous availability of business-critical industrial applications
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 software applications or write failover scripts
ZTC Edge has a hardened system with restricted USB ports, default secure communications settings, and easy-to-configure security features like a host-based firewall, even those that aren’t security experts can quickly and easily secure their environment.
