The advent of Smart Buildings drives the need to monitor and control many separate systems Stratus Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of continuous availability solutions, recently announced it will be previewing its new Always-On Infrastructure for Smart Buildings for the first time at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC) West being held April 6-8 in Las Vegas. The advent of Smart Buildings drives the need to monitor and control many separate systems ranging from security, to IT, to lighting, HVAC and more. Using a virtualised platform is the only cost effective foundation to do this, but virtualising can also mean a single point of failure making fault-tolerant virtualisation an imperative. Monitors entire building management network Providing a proven, always-on foundation for Smart Buildings, Stratus’ industry-leading downtime prevention software, everRun® Enterprise, combined with performance monitoring from Sightline Assure™, enables a simple way to virtualise disparate solutions and easily monitor the entire building management network – from servers to virtualised applications, to cameras, door locks and sensors. “We are excited to be showcasing the Stratus Always-On Infrastructure for Smart Buildings for the first time this week at ISC West”, said Jason Andersen, vice president of business line management, Stratus Technologies. “The powerful combination of everRun Enterprise’s downtime prevention capabilities, along with performance monitoring from Sightline Assure, will make it the most reliable foundation to consolidate and monitor multi-vendor building management and security solutions – from the virtualised applications to the servers.” Visit Stratus at booth #20141 to see first-hand how Stratus everRun Enterprise with the addition of performance monitoring can help you: Optimise your value and differentiate your building security systems with performance monitoring that is powerful and simple to use.
