Stratus ztC Edge Comparison

The Edge is not a computing environment where clean rooms and IT help are abundantly available. While many companies are looking for ways to modernize automation and expand operations, most of the solutions that get considered such as desktops and standalone servers and Industrial PCs don’t offer the complete list of benefits required for today’s Edge deployments. Stratus ztC Edge is the only purpose-built Edge solution enabling simple and always available virtualization for critical operations. Read More

IT/OT Essentials for Control System Projects with Cloud & Edge Computing

By | Application Availability, Availability, Cloud Computing, Cost of Downtime, Edge Computing, Fault Tolerant, High Availability, IIoT, Industrial Automation, On Demand Webinars, Virtualization

Success with IIoT  initiatives and control projects relies on engineers who can bridge the IT/OT divide and understand the critical requirements within the plant environment.

The right platform infrastructure for control applications that supports IIoT initiatives should be easy to use, easy to maintain and eliminate unplanned downtime. However, as applications become more complex and automation and enterprise networks become interconnected, the requirements of IT networks often become imposed on the operational technology world. This frequently creates unforeseen problems for automation engineers and system integrators. This webcast will help create IT and OT alignment for industrial computers, reduce risk, and create stronger project specifications.

Discover what options are available to satisfy IT, while delivering platforms simple to use and maintain by OT, in the control room and at the edge, where support can be a major challenge. As real-time control and analytics applications migrate towards the edge, often in preparation for, or as part of, a digitalization initiative, being able to provide a differentiated solution with best practices to meet OT needs can give system integrators an advantage.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Better gain IT and OT alignment on industrial computers for projects
  • Reduce risk and create more effective industrial computer specifications for projects

VMware and Stratus: Better Together

Enterprise Strategy Group’s Principal Analyst, Jason Buffington, discusses how organizations that believe solving an availability weakness requires an “either”/”or” decision should reconsider, because infrastructures built upon VMware can increase the availability of their mission critical systems (without changes to IT strategy, management, or applications) by utilizing fault tolerant servers as their hosts.

Increasing the Availability of VMware Virtual Machines Is about “And” Instead of “Or”

This Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Solution Showcase highlights statistics from an ESG survey of 250 IT decision makers on the specific challenges today’s organizations experience in trying to attain availability in their virtualized environments.  With only 16% of respondents stating “everything runs reasonably well,” this leaves 84% looking for something different, or as a supplement to what they are doing today.

By reading this paper you will fully comprehend these challenges and best practices including:

  • ESG’s Data Protection and Availability Spectrum
  • Understanding your recovery goals (VM host availability vs. RTO )
  • Application start-time unpredictability
  • Why you should consider a VMware AND Stratus fault-tolerant server(s)
