Stratus Technologies' latest server offerings, which will
run 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
"While Hewlett-Packard's NonStop Computing division -- formerly known as Tandem Computers -- is a formidable opponent in the world of fault tolerance, Stratus is making inroads in the market with its Intel-based lineup of less expensive, but still highly reliable, servers. How highly reliable? Stratus updates a speedometer at the bottom of its home page daily with a 60-day rolling average of the uptime of its fleet of ftServers around the globe. It shows 99.9997% at present, which equates to about 95 seconds per year.
