Frequently asked questions:
What does Stratus Technologies solutions do?
It delivers simple, affordable, continuous uptime for any Windows application running on unmodified, industry-standard server hardware. This high availability solution protects applications, data, and operating systems from faults, failures, and dropped network connections.
How does it work?
Stratus software synchronizes two standard Windows servers and creates a virtual application environment that runs on both of them simultaneously. If one server fails, the Windows application continues to operate uninterrupted using the other server with no failover, transaction rollback, or other complex procedure.
Are there any special I/A Series licensing requirements?
The Stratus solution requires a single I/A Series license only. Only one copy of the Enterprise Server / Enterprise Network Server is required. There are no special properties or license requirements.
Which Marathon product should be used?
All Stratus products can be used. The particular Stratus product will be determined by the end-user hardware and performance requirements.
Are there any special properties that need to be set up in the Enterprise Server / Enterprise Network Server when using the Stratus product?
The installation of I/A Series (R2 or G3) is no different than installing the product on a standard Microsoft Windows platform. Keep in mind; if the Microsoft Windows platform is running IIS, then either IIS or the Enterprise Server / Enterprise Network Server will have to run on something other than port 80. Both applications cannot utilize the same port.
