Because of the critical needs of King's Cross Station, we needed a high availability solution with zero operator intervention in the event of a server failure - and the failover should take place with no loss of system availability. That immediately ruled out most of the solutions on the market. Stratus everRun addressed all our criteria in one hit. We employed 24/7 Uptime to advise on server design and take the lead on the everRun installation. We have undertaken heavy tests and the software has delivered every time. 24/7 Uptime's assistance throughout the project has been outstanding and, without doubt, has greatly assisted us in delivering a successful project.
