On February 6, 2023, Stratus Technologies, Inc. (Stratus), an SGH company and a pioneer in protected, simplified, and autonomous Edge Computing platforms announced that it will display its Edge Computing platforms and pre-validated control architectures, made with Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric, at the 27th annual ARC Industry Leadership Forum from February 6–9, in Orlando, Florida.

The subject of this year's conference is energy transition, driving sustainability and performance through digitalization. During the Oil & Gas Transformation session, Stratus and customer Streamline Innovations will present on sustainable gas treating solutions.

Stratus will showcase its Edge Computing platforms and solutions at booth #34, including:

  • Stratus ztC Edge Platform - the second-generation Stratus ztC Edge platform integrates in-built fault tolerance and application virtualization in an easy-to-install, rugged design for the edge.
  • Stratus Edge Computing Experience (ECX) - This immersive environment enables IT and OT users to explore a broad range of Edge Computing application cases in industrial automation, allowing users to extend edge automation and exploit essential data for insight using easy, secure, autonomous Edge Computing.
  • Edge Analytics - The IoT analytics software from Litmus on the Stratus Edge 110i and the second-gen Stratus ztC Edge 200i exhibits predictive maintenance, condition-based monitoring, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The partnership shows a simple, secure, autonomous solution for deploying analytics for any MES, SCADA, or IoT software at edge locations in order to overcome network bandwidth, latency, and risk of downtime.
  • Stratus will also highlight the following to illustrate how pre-validated and tested architectures may reduce engineering time, enable quick deployment, and simplify OT and IT management:
  • PlantPAx® Solution-in-a-Box from Rockwell Automation - A jointly-tested process control architecture running on ztC Edge to facilitate the deployment of small to medium-sized distributed control systems (DCS) that need less than 5,000 I/Os at edge locations.
  • Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™ Micro Data Center with Stratus ftServer® Platform - Designed for edge environments, it combines virtualization, fault tolerance, physical protection and smart uninterrupted power. These pre-validated designs are ideal for Systems Integrators since they save 40% in field engineering work and 20% in time-to-deployment.
