Protect building automation & security systems: ensure safety & reduce threats

Building infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex.  Today's smart buildings support a wide range of control systems including access, video monitoring, energy efficiency and environmental.  With the evolving phenomenon of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), infinite endpoint devices are monitored and automatically controlled.  However, increasing threats of physical and electronic security breaches mean even short periods of 'blindness' often lead to long term consequential losses.


Central management, analytics and control systems, together with edge of network locations running today's smart building environment need continuous availability.  Stratus everRun and ftServer fault tolerant solutions keep your smart buildings, building automation and electronic security systems up and running 24/7, 365 days per year.

Due to the critical needs of the station management system at the newly refurbished 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. Stratus everRun addressed all our criteria in one hit. We have undertaken heavy tests and the software has delivered every time. 24/7 Uptime’s assistance throughout the project has been outstanding.
