Each year the expectations increase—higher output, better quality, less scrap. What makes it harder is that your budgets aren’t also increasing.
Updating your aging, standalone computer equipment, and virtualizing your industrial control applications, is one way to increase reliability and efficiency. But who has the spare time, resources, or skills to do this?
Greater efficiency: With virtualization host pre-loaded, automated VM and data protection, and hot swappable nodes that synchronize themselves, ztC Edge simplifies and shortens the time it takes to deploy, manage and maintain your critical applications, saving you time and effort.
Improved security: With restricted USB ports, secure communication settings, trusted boot1, active directory integration, and easy-to-configure host-based firewall, you don’t need to be a security expert to secure your ztC Edge system.
Less downtime: ztC Edge’s self-monitoring and self-protecting features help reduce unplanned downtime. Because its virtualization host software can be updated while the system is still running (without requiring a system reboot), customers experience less planned downtime also.
More flexibility: ztC Edge’s rugged, compact, industrial form factor performs equally well in the control room, control panel, or shop floor, giving customers more choice. Its automated capabilities make it suitable for unmanned stations, or remote, decentralized locations with limited resources.
