Research Triangle Park, North Carolina USA (03 May 2018) - The International Society of Automation (ISA) announced today that Stratus Technologies, a global provider of continuous availability solutions for mission-critical applications, is an ISA Promotional Partner.
Stratus, based in Maynard, Massachusetts, has been providing technology platforms that keep business critical applications running 24/7 for more than 35 years. The company's hardware and software solutions proactively prevent unplanned downtime and maintain data integrity, both in the data center and at the edge.
The company develops industrial automation solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), life sciences, manufacturing, the power industries, and the oil and gas, water-wastewater, and food and beverage sectors.
Under the partnership agreement, Stratus will work with ISA to co-develop a range of informational and promotional resources, including: ad inserts within ISA's bi-monthly InTech magazine; and a diverse range of online and e-newsletter ads, video alerts, and ebook sponsorships delivered on and through Automation.com, ISA's online publisher of automation-related content.

"From process to discrete manufacturing, Stratus provides the solutions to modernize and reduce the complexity of industrial control systems. With ISA's commitment to the industrial automation and control industry, this partnership will help bring our message to this critical market."
"The partnership brings together two organizations committed to the viability and protection of industrial automation and control systems," says Jennifer Infantino Halsey, ISA's Director of Marketing & Communications.
