Seneca makes it easy for VARs to deliver high availability server solutions to the SMB Market

Seneca, a leader in innovative technology solutions and Stratus Technologies, today announced that Seneca will integrate Stratus Avance high availability software on its Nexlink server line.

Stratus Avance is designed to prevent downtime, data loss and business interruption. Integrating the software on a Nexlink server pair creates a highly differentiated uptime solution for value-added resellers (VARs) to offer their small and mid-size (SMB) customers, at a fraction of the cost of conventional hardware clusters. VARs will find the Nexlink/Avance platform easy to deploy, requiring no specialized cluster training or expensive and proprietary standby products. The platform is easily managed from a single console and its affordability lowers total cost of ownership for immediate and measurable business value.

"In the past, high availability options for small medium business have proven impractical. Proprietary fault tolerant hardware solutions have a history of being unaffordable and the skills needed to deploy server clusters aren't frequently available in the SMB space," said Chuck Orcutt, Nexlink Product Line Manager. "Nexlink server pairs, combined with Avance high availability software, give our VARs a highly tested solution to offer SMBs to protect their data easily and economically."

Avance software creates a high availability computing platform from two general-purpose servers. Avance software automatically detects, isolates, and handles faults before they can disrupt processing or cause an outage. This self-managing, high availability software includes a web-based management console for remote monitoring and management of servers, virtual machines, and network interfaces.

"Seneca's commitment to customers covers the entire technology lifecycle, just as Stratus does. That's a core value that sets both companies apart in the marketplace," said Nelson Hsu, Senior Director of Avance products. "Avance software complements Seneca's commitment perfectly. It's high availability-made-easy from the viewpoint of value, performance, simplicity, reliability, and serviceability, all of which helps Seneca serve its customers better. We're very pleased they've chosen to be an Avance channel partner."
