MAYNARD, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 --  Stratus Technologies
Japan, a wholly owned subsidiary company of Stratus Technologies,
Inc., a global leader in ensuring availability for mission critical
applications, and ACCESS CO., Ltd, a global provider of advanced
software technologies to the mobile and beyond-PC markets, today
announced an agreement in which the companies will collaborate to
provide highly reliable software-defined networking (SDN) solutions
to enterprises utilizing the cloud. Coupling ACCESS(TM) SDN
Solutions, a network virtualization products suite of ACCESS, and
Stratus ftServer(R) systems, a family of fault-tolerant servers,
customers will be able to meet availability requirements for mission
critical networking. 
Both companies will provide the SDN solutions for users who need
highly reliable and flexible networking infrastructures. The
solutions enable Cloud management software such as CloudStack and
OpenStack to control virtual and physical networks through
functionalities of OpenFlow and overlay technologies including
GREtap, VXLAN, NVGRE and STT. When using the ACCESS and Stratus
solutions in these environments, users can effectively build their
disaster recovery/business continuity planning (DR/BCP) systems,
intrusion detection/protection systems and service oriented
networking systems as well. 
"There's a confluence of technologies impacting the enterprise
currently, but what remains a constant throughout these changes is
that companies need infrastructure that is always available, always
reliable and always on. Business cannot be disrupted by outages and
downtime," said Haruyoshi Iida, president of Stratus Technologies
Japan. "This agreement with ACCESS will allow our enterprise
customers to maintain that reliability and availability to their
mission critical applications and networks. We are pleased to be
working with ACCESS and look forward to a relationship that benefits
our customers." 
In the SDN architecture, network intelligence, state and control are
logically cent
ralized into SDN controller. High availability of
mission-critical components is one of the essential requirements for
the controller because failure results in outages affecting the
entire network under the controller. Stratus ftServer gives over
99.999% availability to the controller and makes SDN networks highly
