1 Stratus Technologies Andy Bailey Underlying technologies and reducing the risk Stratus Technologies Andy Bailey
2 The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Stratus The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey In todays world, there is an expectation that systems are always available. Every application is mission essential.
3 The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Stratus The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Putting a perspective on the cost of downtime….. Industry SegmentNormal Cost of DowntimePeak Cost of Downtime Discrete Manufacturing49,000247,000 Process Manufacturing19,800762,000 Banking828,0002,698,000 Telco192,000499,000 Average Per Hour272,2001,051,500 Source: HP analysis of 158 companies across EMEA, Summer 2005
6 The host becomes a single point of failure. Virtual servers
7 Stratus approach is to prevent any failure conditions…….. Primary environment
8 …..rather than recovering from failures DR environment
9 The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Stratus The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Technology to de- risk aggressive virtualization deployments Always or Continuously available Simple to operate and maintain uses commercially available operating systems everything is hotplug Uncompromising TCO Acquisition Management Downtime
10 The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey Stratus The Smarter Approach to Uptime Andy Bailey At Stratus, Availability is the primary focus of everything we do!
22 Self-checking logic detects and isolates errors to the component level and notifies Stratus of problems If hard error occurs, faulty component is taken out of service; duplicate component continues normal processing – ZERO LATENCY
33 Reliably distinguishes software issues from hardware issues to speed problem resolution – TRANSIENT ERROR PROTECTION
34 Driver hardening ensures uninterrupted processing if an I/O interface fails
35 Rapid disk resynchronization transparently mirrors disks and protects data integrity
36 Active Upgrade Technology Addresses major causes of planned downtime
37 What is Active Upgrade? S SD D 1. Duplex 2. Split 3. Merge & Commit S SD D S SD D RDR-Mirrored System Disks & Data disks Application Keeps Running Patch/Hot-fix Gets Applied Re-mirror from Latest System & Latest Data Disks Outside World Outside World Outside World Outside World Outside World Outside World Enet, EMC, etc System Disks Data Disks
38 ROOT-CAUSE ANALYSIS Accurate error data capture to prevent problem recurrence
