High Availability (HA) is not just for the data center. The result from the deployment of mission critical centralized control rooms (CCRs), intelligent mobile devices, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), workflow based decision support systems and more, will strain, beyond breaking point, the traditional approach to industrial networking. BMRC Solutions offers High Availability solutions for industrial systems in new as well as existing control and information system designs to enable clients to integrate the latest software technologies into critical systems without the risk of failures.
The strength of a system is limited by the strength of its weakest link. If any one component is weak, regardless of whether it is hardware, software, network, controller or application — the whole system can collapse. The need to optimise the industrial system for maximum uptime forces industries to look at high availability systems. To maintain and improve without disruption requires a strong combination of reliable hardware & software, strong support, flexible infrastructure and a systems integrator that can make these technologies work together.
For our clients in the global manufacturing sector, the competition truly never sleeps. Globalization requires manufacturers to keep their industrial automation environments up and running. In particular, SCADA, HMI, Historian, Workflow, MES and other integrated systems are critical to meeting customer demands within tight schedules and managing inventory to maximize profits. They are also central to product quality and regulatory compliance. Unplanned downtime can can result in a lot of lost productivity and money. The amount of financial resources lost due to downtime continues to grow exponentially each year. BMRC Solutions understands these risks and provides tools such as redundant controllers and industrial networks, intrusion-detection, virtualization, fault-tolerant hardware, virus protection, patch management, health-monitoring, failover and disaster recovery to ensure your industrial systems achieve maximum uptime.
To eliminate downtime in critical systems, BMRC Solutions deploys hardened solutions based on two basic techniques to prevent unscheduled outages: fault avoidance and rapid recovery. Based on our extensive experience with automation, SCADA, Historian, Workflow and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), we design systems that prevent faults from occurring in a vast number of scenarios. Rapid recovery, the second technique, added into our system architectures minimises downtime when outages or system failures do occur. Redundant components maintain operations in the event of a failure, while online repairs will allow the faulty component to be repaired without incurring further downtime.
