CONTINUOUS AVAILABILITY VIRTUALIZATION software for always-on applications.

For your solutions that must not fail — Stratus’ everRun® Enterprise continuous availability virtualization software, prevents downtime, ensures business continuity and maintains data integrity by keeping applications running — easily and affordably.

  • everRun Enterprise prevents downtime, rather than merely recovering from it. That difference has a big impact on revenue, costs, customer satisfaction and efficiency rates.
  • everRun’s quick and easy menu based installation and centralized management tools require no specialised skills saving you in IT overhead. And its comprehensive monitoring and notification features help customers achieve business continuity goals, comply with policies and regulations and meet SLAs at a lower cost and with better performance than other fault-tolerant solutions.


A high performance CONTINUOUS AVAILABILITY platform for always-on applications.

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

  • Achieves unmatched business continuity and data integrity by preventing downtime
  • Simplifies operations with easy installation, configuration and management
  • Supports standard operating systems (Windows and Linux) working seamlessly with existing system management tools and applications
  • Virtualizes with ease for optimal efficiencies with support for VMware and Hyper-V
  • Delivers outstanding serviceability with automatic ordering and replacement, hot plug and play, and 24/7/365 system monitoring — eliminating the need for IT intensive resources
  • Promotes long term value with system longevity, minimising the need for frequent technical refreshes
Lockstep Technology

Unique to the industry, ftServer mirrored hardware components process the same instructions in “lockstep” – at the same exact time. In the event of a component malfunction, the mirrored component continues processing without missing a heartbeat.

Simplified Configuration

ftServer provides a “single system view” that presents and manages replicated ftServer components as a single system image. Applications run without modification and only a single copy of software is required. With one system view, installation, configuration and management is simplified.

System Generated Replacement Ordering

Hot-swappable customer replacement units (CRUs) are easily replaced, without user intervention or any special tools, while ftServer and your applications continue to run.

Flexible Storage

ftServer provides flexible storage options to meet all your data requirements including redundant internal storage, external ftScalable™ Storage Arrays and industry standard SANs.

Automatic Monitoring

The Automated Uptime Software Layer™ identifies, manages and takes corrective action on failed components before they impact operations by monitoring more than 500 system components
