Stratus® ztC™ Edge 200i and 250i

The second generation ztC Edge is a secure, rugged, highly automated computing platform that helps understaffed organizations improve productivity, increase operational efficiency, and reduce downtime risk at the edge of their corporate networks.


Designed for both OT (operational technology) and IT (information technology), ztC Edge is easy to deploy and secure, easy to locally and remotely manage, and easy to maintain and service. Self-monitoring, self-protecting, and self-synchronizing, ztC Edge saves companies time and money. With its built-in virtualization, automated protection, industrial interoperability, OT manageability, and field serviceability, ztC Edge enables the quick, easy delivery of both highly available and fault tolerant virtualized edge applications.

Stratus ztC Edge is a secure, rugged, highly automated computing platform that enables the rapid and efficient delivery of reliable business-critical applications in remote, understaffed locations at the edge of corporate networks. Features like its built-in virtualization, simplified security, industrial interoperability, OT manageability, rugged form factor, automated protection, field serviceability, and complementary services, help companies increase productivity, while minimizing downtime risk.

Built in virtualization: ztC Edge ships with its own operating environment called Stratus Redundant Linux. It contains a virtualization host that supports both Windows and Linux guest operating systems, and OVF files and OVA images, including third-party templates. An intuitive management console makes it easy for local and remote staff to set up, configure, import, and manage their virtual machines.

Simplified security: ztC Edge is designed to help OT more easily secure their Edge Computing environment. A host-based firewall, restricted USB ports, role-based access controls with Active Directory integration, secure communications protocols, and secure and trusted boot, all work together to minimize your security exposure.

Industrial interoperability: ztC Edge supports common OT and IT protocols, making integration into existing industrial automation environments easier. SNMP requests and traps can be used to configure notifications and alarms. Customers can use OPC UA attributes, or a REST API, to present relevant system data within most third-party systems management tools and dashboards.

OT manageability: ztC Edge ships with its own tool, the ztC Edge Console, that simplifies system and software management. With it, administrators can remotely access their systems, set thresholds and alerts, check for updates, backup and restore system settings and preferences, and easily manage their VMs.

Simplified security

Rugged redundant nodes: Designed for the harsh conditions typically found in industrial locations, ztC Edge nodes are UL Class I Div 2 certified and IP40 rated for deployment anywhere from the control room or control panel to machines or the shop floor, closer to your devices that are generating data. More durable than standard servers or workstations, ztC Edge offers customers greater reliability and deployment flexibility.

Automated protection: When deployed as a redundant pair, ztC Edge provides instant protection for your workloads. Data is automatically replicated across platforms. VMs running on one platform will automatically restart (High Availability mode) or resume (Fault Tolerant mode) on the other in the event of a failure. If ztC Edge detects a networking or disk failure on one computer, it automatically re-routes traffic or uses data on the other computer, without any operator intervention. Platforms can even be deployed across physical distances, for automated local site recovery.

Field serviceability: When deployed as a redundant pair, ztC Edge platforms are hot-swappable and auto-synchronizing, making field repairs quick and easy. Maintenance or repairs on individual computers can be done to a running system (without a system reboot) to help ensure service continuity. This allows system repair to be planned and completed when its convenient for OT or IT staff.
