Reduced server footprint. Extended application longevity. Improved system availability and recovery. These are just some of the reasons why more industrial organizations are adopting virtualization. However, designing, deploying, and maintaining virtualized infrastructure can be costly, complex, and time-consuming.
The Industrial Data Center (IDC) can greatly ease your move to a virtualized environment. The IDC is a scalable architecture allowing you to easily scale up and out as needed. It includes all of the hardware, software, and installation services needed to deploy a large environment quickly.
With included remote support services, you have access to technical support that keeps your infrastructure running efficiently. The IDC capabilities can be further enhanced by Rockwell Automation Managed Services to monitor remotely and administer the asset for improved robustness and reliability.
Looking to virtualize in a managed environment with support services to help you along the way? The new VersaVirtual™ Appliance helps reduce downtime and doesn’t require specialized IT or OT skills to set up or maintain. This ready-to-use hyperconverged (computer, networking and storage) appliance allows for entry-level virtualization in a managed environment. Run up to 15 software applications from this rack-mounted appliance that comes fully configured. The VersaVirtual Appliance comes with managed services that include remote monitoring and administration.
Design, deployment, and maintenance of a secure and robust network infrastructure can be complex, time-consuming, and costly. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) simplifies deployment of a properly designed industrial infrastructure by combining our pre-engineered network solutions with on-site configuration and 24/7 remote monitoring into a single contract. The result is simplified ordering and commissioning, improved network reliability, and reduced budgetary strain.
IaaS is aligned with the Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) reference architectures. Co-developed in partnership with Cisco, IaaS leverages best-in-class technologies from Rockwell Automation Strategic Alliance Partners, Microsoft and Panduit. Infrastructure-as-a-Service helps you optimize your network infrastructure security and performance.
