Virtualization in Industrial Plants

One of the main priorities for companies in the industrial sector—from water authorities and oil and gas pipelines, to manufacturing plants—is increasing efficiencies. Operating equipment effectiveness, process efficiency, and improved return on assets (RoA) with less investment are all top of mind for industrial managers.

Traditional systems are no longer sufficient for handling downtime. Modern technology, specifically virtualization coupled with fault tolerance, mitigates downtime—both planned and unplanned—to allow plants to operate smarter, faster and safer, and simplify overall system management. Just a few years ago, virtualization was a relatively unknown concept in the industrial sector. However, by the end of 2020, 75% of companies in the space will have adopted virtual server platforms for running SCADA, HMI, Historian and MES.
