Stratus / XenSource Ink Agreement to Link Open Source Virtualization With Industry-standard Fault Tolerance

MAYNARD, Mass., and PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratus Technologies, Inc., a leader in IT technology and services for continuous availability, and XenSource, Inc., the leader in infrastructure virtualization solutions based on the open source Xen(TM) hypervisor, today announced they have signed a collaborative agreement with the goal of fusing continuous availability and virtualization technologies to create new IT infrastructure solutions with superior reliability, flexibility and manageability.

Under terms of the non-exclusive agreement, Stratus will work with XenSource to include XenEnterprise as an integral component in Stratus' Continuous Processing(R) architecture; XenEnterprise is XenSource's commercial version of open source Xen. Stratus' Intel processor-based server lines for Windows and Linux operating environments are already compatible with several current virtualization products, and future support is planned for other products, as well.

"The industry spotlight is on virtualization, and XenSource is clearly one of the principal contributors to the technology's rapid market adoption," said Tim Wegner, general manager, Stratus Advanced Technology Group. "The recent introduction of XenEnterprise, as well as the expansion of XenSource's technology and business development operations to Redmond, Washington are indications that the company has the potential to change the server virtualization landscape and to help fuel market expansion. We're very pleased to be working with them on next-generation infrastructure solutions."

"Improved business continuity and operational simplicity are keys to providing our customers with flexible IT infrastructures," said XenSource CEO Peter Levine. "These same attributes are at the heart of Stratus' commitment to technology for continuous availability, and its 26-year record of delivering it. The integration of XenEnterprise into Stratus' mission critical environments indicates the broad applicability and stability of the XenSource product line."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
