Marathon Technologies Corporation , a developer and supplier of fault- and disaster-tolerant solutions for Microsoft Windows platforms, has announced that Fujitsu Limited will include Marathon's patented Endurance Virtual FTserver software in its Intel-based Primergy server line. Marathon and Fujitsu have signed an OEM agreement that will enable Fujitsu to ship Primergy servers with Endurance software, providing a fault- and disaster-tolerant Intel Architecture Server solution for the entry-level to mid-range server market.

Based on Marathon's field-proven, patented technology, Endurance Virtual FTserver software unites two unmodified industry-standard servers into a single, fully redundant configuration that appears to the network, applications, operating system, and system administrators as a single fault-tolerant server. Marathon claims Endurance software keeps applications running nonstop by detecting, isolating, and operating through failures and disasters with no interruption in service. The company also says Endurance software computes through component failures, delivering service to end users with no loss of application data, no need for transaction rollback, and no loss of performance. Replaced components automatically rejoin the configuration without operator intervention.
