Software House Enhances C•CURE Fault Tolerance
Software House, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, offers an even higher level of 24/7 protection with the transition to Stratus Technologies’ everRun Enterprise and Express v7.2 fault tolerant business continuity solutions for its C•CURE 9000 and C•CURE 800/8000 access control platforms.
“Maintaining system uptime in times of power or connectivity disruption is one of the most critical aspects of security monitoring,” said Jason Ouellette, product line director, access control, Tyco Security Products. “The marriage of Stratus Technologies’ redundancy product with C•CURE platforms makes already highly reliable access control systems even more robust and fault tolerant.”
Through its partnership with Stratus, C•CURE has strengthened its fault tolerant capabilities by deploying everRun Enterprise and Express. By operating on two machines, C•CURE continues to run even if one machine fails. If a component fails, it is replaced with a healthy component from the second system. Additionally, memory checking ensures that all current transactions as well as memory and cached data are preserved.
everRun is available in Enterprise and Express versions, giving customers the flexibility to choose their level of protection. The everRun preventative-based model is focused on helping organizations continue to operate and compute — even during failures. In the event of an incident, the software issues email alerts to authorized personnel.
Users can choose from a variety of automatic failover and recovery options based on availability needs rather than the size of their C•CURE system. The scalable system, which requires minimal IT staff input for operation, is able to grow with each customer’s changing business needs.
