SCADA virtualization and its benefits
As automation solutions become increasingly complex, it follows that the effort required maintaining both hardware and software will also increase.

To reduce the amount of ongoing administration and maintenance effort associated with update issues, the automation world is turning increasingly to virtualization and the opportunity it provides to decouple applications from hardware.

This creates the ability to centrally manage the application and simplify back up and restoration of the system environment. Client environments can be installed just once and distributed among one or two virtualization servers using virtual sessions (instances). It is also easier to implement IT security solutions on central virtualization servers than via numerous client stations. Virtualization also eliminates the restriction of target devices to a particular hardware, allowing more complex applications to run on simple, low-cost, and robust thin clients. Our software team is experienced with the latest virtualization technologies and their application to SCADA and data acquisition systems.
