countries that comprise the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial
Telecommunications (SWIFT) can now select an industry-standard server
platform that delivers the industry's highest levels of uptime
reliability to comply with the stringent network-access requirements
defined by SWIFT.
Stratus has verified compatibility of its continuously available
Stratus(R) ftServer(R) system running Microsoft(R) Windows(R) with
the SWIFT portfolio of products. In testing recently completed at
SWIFT headquarters in Brussels, SWIFTAlliance Access, SWIFTAlliance
Gateway, and SWIFTNet Link (SNL) were successfully tested on Stratus'
server platform. "As a result of our testing, we are satisfied that
our applications perform as desired on the ftServer system from
Stratus," said Alain Drese, head of customer integration, SWIFT.
The Stratus ftServer W series family is a complete line of Intel
processor-based fault-tolerant servers with field-proven uptime
reliability of 99.999 percent and better in Windows computing
environments. The ftServer system provides the resilience and uptime
performance necessary to be embraced by financial institutions that
demand absolute data availability. Highly affordable, as well as
simple to deploy, operate and maintain, ftServer systems are used

applications, which are the financial industry's de facto standard
for communicating payments and securities messages globally.
"We are extremely pleased that Stratus can now offer a SWIFT
solution to its customers," said Mary Ellen Putnam, director,
worldwide financial services sales and business development at
