Stratus powers entry-level

VMware Foundation virtualization with

enterprise-class continuous availability

No-nonsense server consolidation on “5 nines” platform for

remote sites and SMBs

MAYNARD, Mass., Dec. 2, 2008 – Businesses reticent to roll out virtualization because of ROI

concerns, downtime risks, and/or lack of sufficient IT skills now have a low-cost option that

offers core software functionality and runs on the industry’s most reliable server platform, Stratus

Technologies announced today.

VMware Infrastructure 3 Foundation provides basic virtualization capability, ideal for realizing

the benefits of server consolidation, for an entry-level price under $1,000. Foundation is best

suited for locations that wish to implement virtualization, but do not have a large data center

infrastructure to support management tools such as VMware VMotion or VMware HA. Since

VMware availability tools are not provided with VMware Infrastructure 3 Foundation software,

the Stratus ftServer fault-tolerant server completes the solution with continuous availability,

operational simplicity and ease of use, which is particularly appealing to geographically dispersed

operations with little IT staff.
