Gallagher has partnered with Stratus® Technologies to ensure the availability and integrity of Command Centre with a fault tolerant server solution.
Stratus® Technologies is the leading provider of infrastructure based solutions, preventing downtime before it occurs and ensuring uninterrupted availability of server based applications.
The Stratus® FT server eliminates any single point of failure on the Command Centre server hardware. It is a single server appliance with mirrored hardware components, processing the same instructions in ‘lockstep’(the exact same time).
In the event of a component malfunction the mirrored component continues processing keeping all systems operational.
The everRun SplitSite software solution links two servers together to create a single operating environment. The entire Command Center server environment, including data in memory, is replicated, ensuring Command Centre continues to run without interruption or data loss. If one physical machine should fail, Command Centre continues to run on the other physical machine. SplitSite’s replication across multiple sites ensures if disaster strikes in one location, Command Centre is immediately available, up-to-date, and fully operational at another location, without the need for IT staff at the second location.
