HELIOS software is made for mission-critical environments. HELIOS Base adds another level of server fail safety. The HELIOS Service Controller starts, stops and monitors all HELIOS services. Separate processes per active user are generated, to enforce file security and ensure process safety. If any HELIOS service fails the HELIOS Service Controller will restart the service.
