In the third article in our new virtualization series, we take a closer look at how virtualization helps companies achieve high application availability — as high as 99.999 percent — critical in an always-on world.
In 1991, twelve million people in Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and San Francisco were unable to make or receive phone calls when service was sporadically disrupted between June 26 and July 2. This was a time when second generation cell phones were just hitting the market, so many of those without phone service had no backup option. Having no access to a telephone line impacted profits as workdays were disrupted, and public safety as there was no way to call emergency services.
The top articles featured on The Edge this past spring reflect the increasing curiosity around edge computing and the modernization benefits it brings to the industry.
In our fourth edition of the downtime prevention series we want to address the fact that high availability clusters may need cluster-specific APIs to ensure proper fail-over. Case in point, the Hershey order and distribution fail from the Fall of 1999.
In this second article in our virtualization series, we take a closer look the benefits of virtualization, especially how it can provide the perfect solution for desktop environments.
This article offers highlights from a recent newsletter featuring Gartner content. Learn how digital businesses can stay competitive by adopting an edge computing strategy.
When the future is indefinitely smart machines and everything and anything can be a service, you must stop to ask yourself, when does it makes sense for industrial operations to take this on? As we embark on the next revolution with Industry 4.0 and the digital transformation IA is undertaking, is the OT infrastructure ready for XaaS?
For most the path to IIoT will be an evolutionary journey. Before you can start to tap the potential of next-generation, big data-driven, intelligent automation, you must modernize the foundation on which it is built. And that means taking a hard look at existing operational technology. Modernizing your infrastructure will deliver incredible benefits in terms of reliability and manageability to create a future-proof platform to build your organization’s IIoT strategy.
Large Fortune 500 companies with deep pockets are investing in IIoT technologies. These projects are yielding results, although implementations are not without their challenges. An increasing number of industrial companies are looking at ways to leverage analytics, outside of the traditional applications that helped them on the production side. Some have a clear idea of what they want to achieve, some are trying to understand what various technologies could do for them. What does seem clear is that some form of IT/OT convergence and collaboration is necessary to achieve success.
