The convergence of IT and OT in the industrial world has been a topic of discussion for years. With the increasing need to drive business efficiency through the adoption of new technologies and concepts such as the Industrial Internet of Things and the cloud, bringing previously disparate IT and OT together is a necessity. It’s also a challenge.
The Industrial Internet of Things kicked off the smart manufacturing revolution, but there is still much more to be accomplished. By embracing digital transformation, organizations can reap the benefits of the intelligent edge.
By embracing the promise of automated tech, organizations of all sizes are poised to make good on their promises of digital transformation. But, to realize the possibilities of the connected, autonomous future, automation pioneers must follow a new set of best practices to achieve meaningful results.
At the recent Rockwell Automation Fair, Dave Vasko, Director of Advanced Technology at Rockwell Automation, Inc. spoke with Barry Dellecese, Director of Product Management and Marketing at Stratus about the “bleeding edge” of edge computing. Their conversation is now available as part of Rockwell’s State of the Industry podcast.
Frank Hill, with Stratus Technologies, introduces the Zero Touch Computing Solution, ztC Edge. It’s a fully integrated, industrial computing platform designed to help understaffed manufacturers increase operator efficiency, reduce IT burden…
A primary consideration for edge computing platforms is determining how many clients can be reliably hosted before performance degrades. The following approach was used to realistically explore how a typical Stratus ztC Edge system would perform when hosting multiple applications.
