Virtualization of machines and equipment

Like a full IT retrofit, there is also the ability to modernize existing assets and machines to virtualize existing computers that control them or record data 1: 1 according to their settings and performance.

In virtualization, most operators have different interests, ranging from data backup, machine centralization, machine network or facility network integration, to better manageability of the various machines' IT, or to a higher level of data security. In some cases, the central availability of computers is used for further aggregation of inventory data, since all machines, or their IT hardware, now come together in a virtual environment.

As soon as the objective of the operator has been formulated and fixed, there are several (optional) steps, which are then checked or executed before the actual implementation of the virtualization:

implementation

If all requirements are fulfilled and the corresponding analyzes come to a positive result, the virtualization of the machine or plant can be implemented. The implementation is roughly based on the following points:

  • Data Backup

  • Transfer inventory in "black box"

  • Setup Virtualization (According to Operator Preferences)

  • Setup interfaces

  • Integration "Black-Box" (operator as partner)

  • Tests as well as error handling.
