Solution Spotlight: Stratus ftServers

It’s an always-on world.  In every facet of our life, we expect to have reliable delivery of all our resources – from traditional utilities such as power and water, to today’s demands for internet connectivity and access to data.

That need for “always-on” is vital in our industrial automation applications as well.  Downtime in the system is loss of money.

Stratus’ ftServer—complete with hardware, software and services—is an operationally simple platform that will keep your applications running with no downtime or data loss.
