Enterprises can also build disaster recovery and business continuity planning systems with software-defined networking and fault-tolerant solution    

MAYNARD, MA, April 16, 2013 – Stratus Technologies Japan, a wholly owned subsidiary company of Stratus Technologies, Inc., a global leader in ensuring availability for mission critical applications, and ACCESS CO.,Ltd, a global provider of advanced software technologies to the mobile and beyond-PC markets, today announced an agreement in which the companies will collaborate to provide highly reliable software-defined networking (SDN) solutions to enterprises utilizing the cloud. Coupling ACCESSTM SDN Solutions, a network virtualization products suite of ACCESS, and Stratus ftServer® systems, a family of fault-tolerant servers, customers will be able to meet availability requirements for mission critical networking.

Both companies will provide the SDN solutions for users who need highly reliable and flexible networking infrastructures. The solutions enable Cloud management software such as CloudStack and OpenStack to control virtual and physical networks through functionalities of OpenFlow and overlay technologies including GREtap, VXLAN, NVGRE and STT. When using the ACCESS and Stratus solutions in these environments, users can effectively build their disaster recovery/business continuity planning (DR/BCP) systems, intrusion detection/protection systems and service oriented networking systems as well.

“There’s a confluence of technologies impacting the enterprise currently, but what remains a constant throughout these changes is that companies need infrastructure that is always available, always reliable and always on. Business cannot be disrupted by outages and downtime,” said Haruyoshi Iida, president of Stratus Technologies Japan. “This agreement with ACCESS will allow our enterprise customers to maintain that reliability and availability to their mission critical applications and networks. We are pleased to be working with ACCESS and look forward to a relationship that benefits our customers.”

In the SDN architecture, network intelligence, state and control are logically centralized into SDN controller. High availability of mission-critical components is one of the essential requirements for the controller because failure results in outages affecting the entire network under the controller. Stratus ftServer gives over 99.999% availability to the controller and makes SDN networks highly reliable.
