CFE Media and Technology’s Chris Vavra interviewed Mike Wurster, director of strategic alliances at Stratus, to discuss their partnership with Rockwell Automation and the products they are displayed at Automation Fair at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“One of the reasons Rockwell Automation partners with Stratus Technologies is to deliver a continuous availability to zero-touch compute platforms that are easy to deploy and have unmatched reliability for those business-critical applications where data loss isn’t any option,” said Wurster. Stratus has a major focus on making their products easy to use in the case of information technology (IT) support.

Earlier in 2022, Stratus won Rockwell Automation’s Partner Network Ecosystem award. Because of Stratus’s major focus on edge computing, Rockwell has been able to integrate their solutions onto the hardware.

Automation Fair product releases

Three major products that were highlighted by Stratus at Rockwell’s Automation Fair was the ZTC Edge, the PlantPAx and the Edge Compute Experience (ECX) solution.

“A lot of customers have interest in the word ‘digitization’ and plant floor information and going on that journey,” Wurster said.
