Wonderware Operations Integration Servers in under 6 minutes [video]

In this video, Alvaro Martinz, covers the Wonderware Operations Integration Solutions, the next generation of device integration which greatly expands our connectivity spectrum both down to the data layer as well as up to the business and ERP layers which supports an industry wide, global, IoT and Cloud-ready communication. 
                                                   
Operations Integration Solutions includes include Operations Integration Core (common code base used by all OI Servers and OI Clients), Operations Integration Servers (OI Servers) and Operations Integration Clients (OI Clients).



Key values:
  • Increased throughput
  • Increased scalability
  • Eliminate single points of failure
  • Maximize communication uptime
  • Support multiple OI Server versions on a single node
  • Co-exist with existing DAServers or DI Objects on a single node
  • Reduce application costs
  • Single node license covers as many servers as you want in a single node.
  • Consolidate scattered architectures to less nodes

More details
  • Increase throughput
    • Parallel independent processing of I/O by each individual driver instance results in my higher overall throughput per driver and per node.
  • Increase Scalability
    • Eliminate the limitations of a single driver in a single node. You can run multiple completely independent instances of the same driver in a single node
  • Eliminate single points of failure
    • By running multiple instances of the same node any potential problems that may affect one driver instance are isolated to just that instance.
  • Maximize communication uptime
    • Reduce impact of configuration changes that require driver restarts to a single instance thus allowing other drivers to continue to run unaffected.
  • Support multiple versions
    • Single node side-by-side upgrades allows continuing to run the previous driver version while adding a new version of the same driver protocol.
    • Keep the old while adding new without having to change existing versions thus allowing continued growth without disruptions.
