Technology Leaders Join to Build Awareness, Speed Adoption of Windows 2000-based Fault-Tolerant Platforms

Believing that market knowledge about fault-tolerant systems ranges from being outdated to incomplete to entirely absent, six companies have combined resources to establish the Fault Tolerant Server Consortium (FTSC). Launched yesterday in Japan, the consortium expects to grow into a worldwide organization as more IT product manufacturers bring fault-tolerant products to market.

Charter companies and members of the FTSC include: Hitachi, Ltd., Intel K.K., Microsoft Co., Ltd.,NEC Corporation, Stratus Technologies Japan, Inc. and Toshiba Corporation.
