Unmatched reliability, performance, and scalability for your high-volume transactions

Certain applications, like those that power payment processing, trading, and reservation systems, can place unusually high demands on IT infrastructure. It’s not enough to be available 24x7x365. It also need to process thousands of transactions per second, support thousands of concurrent users, and respond within milliseconds. General purpose hardware, with general purpose operating systems, are generally insufficient to support these types of extreme requirements.

Stratus systems are more than capable. Stratus ftServer V Series is specifically engineered for your most demanding mission-critical TPS (transaction processing systems) workloads. Purpose-built hardware with highly tuned OpenVOS operating system software provide unmatched availability, and deliver the scalability and performance required for high-volume transaction processing.

Infrabel chose to stick with Stratus and go with the top range V Series, … doing so with zero impact on the running of the railway network at minimal cost and maximum speed
