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 the foundation for complex software deployment at the EdgeStratus ftServer enables organisations to run business-critical software and processes with no downtime, backed by the company’s fault tolerance, system monitoring, and support for simple, protected, and autonomous operation. Combined, ftServer’s reliability, virtualisation, and performance provide teams with the ability build edge-in architectures to modernise infrastructure, and deliver new insight and greater visibility on operations. Performance improvements for transaction-based and web-based applicationsStratus 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, and 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 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.New features for the 11th Generation ftServerThe 11th generation Stratus ftServers add new features to scale performance and provide maximum flexibility when deploying in edge environments: • Support for latest Operating Systems – ftServer supports VMware vSphere 7.0, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4, and Microsoft Windows Server 2019, featuring significant security enhancements and the latest support and patching. • NVMe memory – Available as a 1.6TB option for ftServer configurations, NVMe offers the fastest storage available and is ideal for high-performance applications such as real-time analytics and machine learning (ML).• Intel Cascade Lake chipsets – Intel’s 2nd generation Xeon Scalable Processors feature 2.2Ghz speed and 10 to 36 CPU cores for AI and IoT workloads.Stratus ftServer configurationsStratus ftServer is available in three primary configurations with a range of memory and disk storage options:• Stratus ftServer 2910 – Ideal for running standalone applications in remote offices, branch offices, or shop floor locations. Supports up to 10,000 I/O’s and two (2) remote clients.• Stratus ftServer 4910 – Versatile for rapidly growing or evolving applications in regional offices, remote plants, or regional data centres. Sized for 25,000-50,000 I/O’s and five (5) remote clients. • Stratus ftServer 6910 – Highest-performance configuration for data-intensive or transaction-intensive applications in larger remote plants or corporate data centres. Supports up to 100,000 I/O’s and twenty (20) remote clients.
