Stratus everRun Enterprise Technical Certification Course
This week I am sitting the Stratus everRun Enterprise Technical Certification course, held at Stratus Technologies, headquartered in Maynard, MA. Much to my delight this is an accelerated course where they cram five days of training into three! I have worked with this and similar technologies originally designed and offered by Marathon Technologies since the nineties, so it’s like old home week coming here. Last year Stratus purchased Marathon and ultimately this is good for the evolution of the everRun product line. This week’s course is designed to train experienced technicians on the newly redesigned everRun Enterprise and I can say that I am very impressed with the new system. Originally built on Citrix XenServer the new product is built on Centos Linux 6.5 and uses the KVM hypervisor. I am a big fan of XenServer but working with this new version of everRun I see the wisdom the Stratus has leveraged in designing this impressive product. The everRun product line is designed to provide a highly fault tolerant server platform to run workloads that require up to five nines of “up time” (less than six minutes of downtime per year). This product is highly regarded as one of the best solutions in the industry for protecting critical applications and data. If you operate computer systems that cannot afford to be down you owe it to yourself to look at this system. Class wraps up tomorrow and I’ll be dashing to the airport to head home to sunny Seattle!
