Stratus Technologies, Inc. announced today the expansion of its operations in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Entering into a trademark license agreement with its existing Moscow-based master reseller STR LLC, Stratus has accredited STR to supply and support its full portfolio of resilient technologies and complementary proactive availability management and monitoring services.
“This is a strategic investment for Stratus - as one of the BRIC
economies, Russia is broadly acknowledged as being in a state of
advanced economic growth,” said Thierry Seror, VP Stratus Technologies
EMEA. “Stratus has conducted business in Russia for more than 20 years
through a network of partners and distributors, just as it does
throughout EMEA. Developing our business by establishing an accredited
and focussed presence in Moscow demonstrates our increased commitment
not only to serving existing customers, but also to new organisations
and their end users who depend on systems uptime.”
“STR is delighted to have been given the opportunity to further develop
its association with Stratus,” said Alexey Kondrashov, CEO of STR. “As a
result of the agreement, we are looking forward to a sustained period
of growth within our existing markets. We are also investing in new
resources to complement our specialised team of experts to develop and
penetrate new business markets.”
