Stratus ztC Edge Computing portfolio additions
Stratus Technologies, a manufacturer of autonomous edge computing solutions, announced the availability of Stratus Redundant Linux 2.0, the virtualization and availability software layer that powers ztC Edge, as well as a new hardware model, the 110i. These updates to Stratus’ ztC Edge computing portfolio, developed with input from end users, system integrator and reseller partners, addresses customers’ most pressing needs for enhanced security, monitoring and performance at the edge of corporate networks, while continuing to offer the simplicity and unmatched reliability of the original platform.
ztC Edge now includes a host-based firewall, restricted USB ports, improved authentication, updated secure communications protocols and secure trusted boot. The new solution offers additional hardware sensors, application and VM performance monitoring, and OPC UA support, so customers can easily incorporate ztC Edge system health information into their existing industrial monitoring tools and dashboards. Additionally, it introduces support for mixed fault tolerant and highly available workloads, providing customers the ability to meet stringent recovery time and recovery point objectives, while allowing them to match the level of protection to the criticality of their applications.
The updated software is available with a more powerful hardware model, the 110i, and with the current model, the 100i. The larger, more powerful 110i system supports customers requiring more processing and data storage for their edge workloads. ztC Edge is designed for critical business applications, including those that support the collection and analysis of real-time data at the edge.
