SDI will present a use case of Edge Computing in automated material handling for smart manufacturing and supply chain
MAYNARD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Strata Technologiesworld leader in simplified, protected and autonomous services edge computing platforms, announced today that it will present, exhibit and demonstrate its Edge Computing platforms, including the 2North Dakota Generation ztC Edge platform and pre-validated control architectures developed with Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric at 26the ARC Industry Annual Forum, Accelerating industrial digital transformation and sustainability, taking place June 6-9 in Orlando, FL. In addition, Jason Andersen, Vice President of Business Line Management for Stratus, will participate in IT/OT convergence: a foundation for digital transformation, and join Stratus customer Mike Higley, Systems Architect at SDI by Best practices in smart manufacturing discussing edge computing use cases for automated material handling.
“Edge Computing provides the foundation to accelerate digital transformation by bringing computing power to the shop floor, control room or stranded assets,” said Stephen Greene, vice president of global marketing and business development at Stratus. “So our customers can run their critical applications close to equipment and processes without worrying about data loss or platform failure. As a result, they can focus on innovation and new results instead of managing the IT infrastructure. SDI is a great example of simple, protected, and autonomous edge computing in action that has resulted in expanded capabilities and new offerings.”
Mike Higley, Systems Architect at SDI, said, “SDI supports some of the world’s largest retailers who turn to us for our expertise in unit sorting and warehouse automation. Stratus ftServer is the heart and brain of our design architectures to run our WMS software and business rules. Downtime in a distribution center can cost a retailer as much as a million dollars a day, and the Stratus platform hasn’t let us down. Therefore, we measure Stratus not only by the value of risk avoidance, but also by the relationships and credibility that have allowed our business to steadily grow and reach new heights.”
Stratus Demonstrates Turnkey Edge Computing Architectures
At booth #1, Stratus will showcase its second-generation ztC Edge platform, which is the industry’s first edge computing platform that combines integrated application virtualization and fault tolerance in a rugged, easy-to-install design for the industrial edge. They will also showcase Stratus ECX, an immersive environment that highlights the use cases and applications where customers use Stratus’ simple, secure, and autonomous edge computing platforms.
To demonstrate how pre-validated and tested architectures can save engineering time, enable rapid deployment, and simplify IT and OT management, Stratus will also highlight:
- Rockwell Automation PlantPAX Comprehensive Solution: A jointly proven process control architecture that runs on the ztC Edge to simplify the deployment of small to medium scale Distributed Control Systems (DCS) requiring 5,000 I/O or less at edge locations.
- Schneider Electric EcoStruxure Micro Data Center with Stratus ftServer: It combines fault tolerance, virtualization, intelligent uninterruptible power, and physical protection, designed for perimeter environments. Ideal for system integrators, these pre-validated architectures offer 40% savings in field engineering time and 20% faster implementation time.
Customer Success: The Role of Edge Computing in Smart Manufacturing
Andersen and Higley will be part of a panel, Best practices in smart manufacturing, which will take place on Wednesday, June 8 from 2 to 3:30 pm ET. The panel will focus on the technologies, tools and solutions available to help manufacturers not only start their digital transformation journey, but also successfully implement and scale a smart manufacturing approach, empowering manufacturers to adopt the latest technologies. and managing technical and cultural challenges. Leveraging Stratus ftServer, SDI develops warehouse distribution solutions that are protected against data loss and enhances its industry-leading unit classification systems deployed for the nation’s largest consumer brands.
Andersen will also be part of the panel, IT/OT convergence: a foundation for digital transformation session, which will take place on Wednesday, June 8 from 4 to 5:30 pm ET. This session will explore how companies have effectively integrated IT and OT systems, highlighting the technical and cultural hurdles they have overcome and the benefits achieved versus expectations.
