Stratus Extends Leadership in Industrial Automation with Always-On Infrastructure for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
New end-to-end solution from Stratus enables continuous Operations for IT and Operational Technology (OT)
MAYNARD, Mass., April 5, 2016 – Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of continuous availability solutions, today announced it is extending its commitment to Industrial Automation worldwide with the Stratus Always-On Infrastructure for IIoT. Providing a proven always-on foundation for IIoT deployments, the Stratus solution features Stratus ftServer® technology with VMware vSphere® 6, as well as application monitoring and OPC integration. Stratus is reducing the complexity and risk that can be associated with software defined Industrial Automation technologies, bringing the best of both worlds to OT and IT. For OT organizations, the Stratus Always-On Infrastructure for IIoT delivers an operationally simple platform, an intuitive dashboard with visibility into system and application health, and continuous availability. And for IT, the solution provides a standard platform that can be integrated into existing management and security processes.
“The business potential IIoT can bring to Industrial Automation is a game changer for our customers,” said Jason Andersen, vice president of business line management, Stratus Technologies. “As more software is being deployed to support IIoT, successful IIoT implementation is reliant on absolute integrity of data right from the source. As SCADA and sensor systems increase in complexity and their data collection rates move to milli-second intervals, the need for reliability and availability increases even more. In addition, with continued virtualization adoption in IT, we are further reducing complexity for our OT customers by delivering our solution with VMware vSphere 6.”
