Maintaining On-site High Availability in the Manufacturing Industry
In manufacturing, productivity is paramount. In order to meet stringent client demands, mitigate waste and maintain market share, factories and offices need to stay operational and run with maximum efficiency.
Day-to-day factory processes are like a long chain, with many links. If one link breaks, the whole chain is compromised. These complex processes, along with moving machinery and stored materials, also carry an increased risk from localized disasters (e.g. floods, fires, power outages). In this kind of environment, a single point of infrastructure failure is simply unacceptable. Infrastructure needs built-in redundancy to maintain productivity and reduce the risk of data loss.
StorMagic SvSAN does all of this and more. It removes single points of failure, minimizing both planned and unplanned downtime, at the lowest cost-per-site on the market. This makes it the perfect storage infrastructure solution to keep your factories and offices up and running.
Keep applications and systems such as video surveillance, robot control and monitoring, forklift telemetry monitoring, building automation and control, and IoT highly available with SvSAN. All you need are two x86 servers at each location, with very light server hardware and networking requirements.
Why SvSAN for Manufacturing?
- Affordable - StorMagic SvSAN is on average 50% less expensive than traditional physical SAN alternatives.
- No unplanned downtime - machinery and production applications remain operational even in the event of localized disasters (floods, fires, power outages etc.)
- No planned downtime - enables essential maintenance and upgrades without the need for system downtime which would otherwise disrupt business and bring operations to a standstill.
- Flexible - deploy as a stretched cluster and allow each node to be located in different areas of a factory, or even on either side of an entire city, for huge flexibility and resiliency.
