Stratus has announced the next generation of its Stratus ftServer line of fault-tolerant edge servers. Offering up to 50% greater performance, Stratus’ latest ftServers provide computing power and reliability optimised for the industrial edge and for edge data centre locations. Stratus ftServer computing platforms allow organisations to build distributed, edge-in architectures required to run advanced software applications, manage large-scale I/O counts and collect real-time data. In addition, the latest generation ftServer line offers expanded configurations for VARs, Systems Integrators, Solution Builders and end-users to fine-tune Edge Computing power and performance for current as well as future software deployments.
Stratus ftServer enables organisations to run business-critical software and processes with no downtime, backed by the company’s industry-leading fault tolerance, system monitoring and support for simple, protected and autonomous operation. Combined, ftServer’s reliability, virtualisation and performance provide teams with the ability to build edge-in architectures to modernise infrastructure and deliver new insight and greater visibility on operations.
Stratus ftServer’s performance enhancements allow teams in Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Smart Infrastructure, Water & Wastewater and other industries to accelerate edge automation and deploy more software at the industrial edge. ftServer is ideal for running distributed control system (DCS) software managing large I/O counts, historians, soft PLCs and analytics and asset performance management applications that depend on real-time edge data sent to unified operations centres or the cloud. Moreover, organisations are able to consolidate the software stack required to run an entire factory in a single compute platform optimised for the edge.
For non-industrial applications including Retail and Financial Services, the latest ftServer platforms improve the performance of both transaction-based and web-based applications. These improvements benefit organisations that rely on high volume, high-speed transaction processing within edge applications operating remotely or locally.
