Each year the expectations increase— greater productivity, higher quality, faster changes. Updating your aging, standalone computers and virtualizing your industrial control applications can help you increase efficiency and reclaim space, but you lack the time, resources, or skills to do this. But what if you could get all the benefits of a modern, reliable, secure computing platform, in a package that was simple enough to set up, manage, and maintain by yourself?
Improved efficiency: With pre-installed virtualization, automated application and data protection, support for common industrial protocols, and intuitive, user-friendly configuration and management tools, ztC Edge simplifies and shortens the time it takes to get your critical applications up and running, saving you time and effort.
Less downtime: ztC Edge’s self-monitoring and self-protecting features help reduce unplanned downtime. Its virtualization host software can be updated on a running system (without requiring a system reboot), eliminating any planned downtime associated with system upgrades.
Enhanced Security: A hardened system with restricted USB ports, the default use of secure communications, and easy-to-configure features like a host-based firewall that allows each ztC Edge system to block or allow specific IP addresses, helps simplify the process of securing ztC Edge.
Greater flexibility: ztC Edge performs equally well in the control room, machine cabinet, or shop floor, giving customers more deployment flexibility. Support for both fault tolerant and highly available workloads lets you match the level of availability with the criticality of your application.
