Stratus launches high speed Intel server

Lindsay Clark
Stratus Technologies has launched an Intel-based server for mission-critical, high-volume applications.

Able to run either Linux or Windows, the Stratus ftServer V Series 200 and 400 models have already been used by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (Swift) and the Philadelphia Stock Exchange as part of an early adopter programme.

Intel-based V Series systems deliver three to five times faster processor performance and up to 10 times faster input/output system performance than Stratus' current high-end PA-Risc-based Continuum models for approximately 30% less cost, the company said.

Stratus said it offers Microsoft Windows, Linux and the Stratus Virtual Operating System on Intel Xeon processor-based servers.

Most of the company's R&D investment in server hardware is now focused on Intel, although Stratus said it will continue to sell and support VOS and Hewlett Packard's HP-UX on the Stratus Continuum server line.
