Learn the advantages of migrating to a modern information infrastructure for the connected enterprise
Top 5 Reasons why a Modern Information Infrastructure for the Connected Enterprise with Stratus works
Consolidate multiple servers onto a single, virtualized platform
Clusters are expensive, highly complex, difficult to maintain and do not offer complete availability and outage protection. Stratus lets you take an existing application, and have it run, unchanged, on a new Industrial Edge system—either ztC Edge or ftServer based on your industrial environment requirements.
Reduce cost and maintenance of workstations
Replace the aging workstations on the plant floor with remote desktop software and thin clients to reduce application license fees, disruptive application updates, and expensive hardware upgrades.
Prevent unplanned application downtime
Did you know that unplanned outages result in 10x the cost of scheduled downtime? If you are leveraging clusters, it’s just a matter of time when unplanned downtime will happen. Stratus systems are highly available, secure & reliable through the unique dual computing redundant system to avoid system failure and unscheduled downtime, and supports OT/IT best practices.
Minimize (or eliminate) repair time with built-in predictive maintenance and serviceability
Stratus Edge solutions are easy to maintain, with on-line module level replacement avoiding disruption. Units are self-protecting and monitoring by Stratus so that OT Engineers and maintenance people can maintain the system without the need for IT support or onsite computer expertise.
Extend platform’s lifespan and embrace a lower total cost of ownership
Self-monitoring, dynamic updates, and hot swappable nodes promote system longevity, so operators can expect 3-4x longer lifecycle versus other computing systems. Plus, save up to 40% when you factor in acquisition, software licensing, ease of deployment and ongoing management, and zero unplanned downtime costs.
How much time and money will unplanned time cost you?
How do you know if consolidating to one server is ideal for you?
If your servers are more than 4 years old, let’s face it -the probability of unplanned downtime greatly increases with “off the shelf” servers. When it fails, you could be riddled with problems such as unplanned downtime, loss of productivity, and exuberant aging technology costs. Often, server pairs are recommended to prevent this, but how much time and work goes into maintaining two servers with duplicate software?
It may be time to update or retrofit your server infrastructure and virtualization with the ftServer or ztC, designed for hardware-based redundancy, and eliminate the need to maintain more than one server.
