“As more companies turn to IoT-enabled solutions to improve operations and meet customer expectations, edge computing is quickly becoming a critical part of the reliable infrastructure needed. Across numerous industries, ztC Edge is providing the high availability and fault tolerance required to meet IoT demands. This recognition from IoT Evolution World is another proof point of the innovative work we’re doing and the power of our ztC Edge platform,” said David Laurello, President and CEO at Stratus.
“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Product of Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the multi-billion-dollar IoT market today,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution. “It is my honor to congratulate Stratus for its innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry.”
The Power of ztC Edge
Stratus’ second generation ztC Edge is a zero-touch, secure, and highly automated edge computing platform purpose built for edge environments. ztC Edge is secure and easy to deploy, manage, maintain, and service. The platform is simple, protected, and autonomous and is powering digital transformation at the edge in multiple industries. Self-protecting and self-monitoring features drastically reduce unplanned downtime and ensure continuous availability of business-critical applications. The platform is the industry’s only solution offering built-in application virtualization and fault tolerance in an easy-to-install, ruggedized design (UL Class 1 Div 2) for the edge.
Stratus ztC Edge Provides Fast Payback
In a study by Nucleus Research, the average ROI from a Stratus ztC Edge deployment was 237% over three years, with a short 7.6-month payback period. Additionally, the average annual total cost of ownership (TCO) is $10,812 and customers reported that anywhere between 8-15 hours a month were saved on system maintenance.
