Our Heritage

Stratus was one of many hardware firms that once lined Massachusetts' high-technology Interstate beltways in the 1970s and 1980s. Known then as Stratus Computer, the company was committed to the art and science of fault-tolerant computing from the beginning.

Financially successful with consistent growth, Stratus became a favorite with banks, credit card companies, securities exchanges and brokerage firms around the world. In the 1990s, Stratus applied its technology to solutions for the red-hot telecommunications industry, particularly in the areas of network management and custom services. The telecom share of revenues quickly surpassed the enterprise computing business where Stratus had its roots. It was this success that attracted Ascend Communications to acquire Stratus Computer in 1998.

The enterprise-server business was of no interest to Ascend, however. That portion was spun off in a leveraged management buyout in February 1999, with funding from international investment firm, Investcorp. The reborn Stratus had a specific mission: make fault tolerance more affordable using open-systems technology and take it to new markets.  The Intel®-based Stratus® ftServer® system for Windows computing came to market two years later.

In 2003 Stratus purchased Cemprus LLC; this was the former Stratus telecom business originally purchased by Ascend in 1998. 

The Stratus Technologies of today is a privately held company, owned primarily by Investcorp, Intel Capital, MidOcean Partners, and NEC.  The parent company, Stratus Technologies Bermuda Holdings, Ltd., is incorporated in Bermuda.
