MAYNARD, Mass., Dec. 10 -- Fault tolerance and
continuously available computing get an easy-to-read update today with
the release of Stratus Technologies' "Fault Tolerance For Dummies"
book, which is available free of charge through the company Web site.
The 44-page book in the popular "Dummies" format describes how fault
tolerant computing has evolved away from its proprietary and
specialized origins into a standards-based technology with broad
applications in new areas such as virtualization. Using tutorials and
customer anecdotes, the book helps readers evaluate their availability
needs and how fault-tolerant solutions can meet them.
"Fault tolerant computing has changed more in the last five years
than in the 30 years before, and as a result it's practical for a broad
new range of applications that most people in the IT community probably
hadn't considered," said Sue Lawrence-Longo, Stratus vice president of
worldwide marketing. "Our goal with 'Fault Tolerance for Dummies' is to
provide a short but informative primer that helps them determine when
fault tolerance is the right choice to achieve their application
Among the specific topics the book covers are measuring
availability; defining downtime and its costs; fault tolerance compared
to other availability solutions; and simplifying IT environments
through virtualization. It also includes a case study sidebar about
Emergency Health Services of Nova Scotia, which chose a Stratus
ftServer system as its computer-aided dispatch platform.
