Oil, Gas & Utilities

Energy & utilities, oil, gas & petrochemicals companies face pressure from all sides so critical operational systems must work 24/7.


Matching supply and demand in real-time is a growing problem.  Worst still, security and tampering are real issues these days and, of course, communities are concerned about safety issues.  Outdated infrastructure can also lead to security threats and serious or fatal accidents.  Yet we are increasingly reliant on these natural resources.


So critical operational systems simply must be up and running 24/7.

When systems fail and downtime occurs, your organisation runs the risk of falling foul of compliance violation and very costly inaccurate balancing.  The regulators response? Tougher legislation, stricter audits and larger fines for non-compliance – just to add to the mounting pressure.

To learn how Stratus fault tolerance can help your organisation, take a look at this case study from Columbia Pipeline Group.

Many energy, oil, gas, petrochemicals & utilities providers have attempted to address these issues by adopting a reactive failover/standby server system to prevent critical system downtime.  In today’s ‘always on’ environment, this simply isn’t a good enough approach.  Standby servers rely on one vital principle – the operational system has to fail before the standby server takes over.  This still results in a period of system downtime and the reality of all the consequences that entails.


A solution that prevents downtime in the first place rather than reacts to it is the ONLY answer.  Combining an always on solution with the ability to virtualise systems at the same time adds flexibility and scaleability which was previously impossible on single physical server deployments.

Stratus ftServer fault tolerant hardware and everRun fault tolerant software ensure processing plants, control rooms and other critical operation systems stay up and running 24/7.  Proven continuous availability with improved flexibility is exactly what you need in such demanding environments.  Our fault tolerant and virtualisation experience, operational system knowledge and strong existing client partnerships mean you can trust us to eliminate your system downtime and avoid the dreaded consequences.
