Stratus Technologies | February 07, 2023
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.

ZEDEDA | January 03, 2023
ZEDEDA, a company that provides edge orchestration solutions, has announced that it has delivered a scalable edge solution for Switch Automation, a global technology company that provides digital building solutions. Based on the Zededa Edge Orchestration Platform, the scalable edge solution lets Switch Automation manage distributed devices securely on a global scale.
Switch's smart building platform integrates with traditional building systems and internet of things (IoT) technologies to analyze, automate, and control assets in real time. However, during early deployments, Switch encountered scalability issues with hundreds of appliances. To address this problem, Switch turned to Zededa's edge orchestration platform.
"Improving operational management and deployment consistency were the top priorities for us. We had a few hundred IoT appliances connected when we started working with ZEDEDA, but it was challenging for us to envision scalability for the future. Now with ZEDEDA’s edge management and orchestration solution, we don’t need to worry about limitations."
- Peter Rake, chief product officer at Switch Automation
ZEDEDA provided solutions and technical expertise for managing Switch's edge devices, including the operating system, edge applications, and network, and delivered a stable network device to allow Switch to achieve high uptime and a more robust support infrastructure. As a result, Switch was able to successfully scale up their operations to thousands of appliances and improve overall network performance. By using ZEDEDA's edge orchestration platform, Switch was able to solve problems with scalability and get a better infrastructure, which helped them grow their business.
As a result of using ZEDEDA's solution, Switch has been able to reduce its maintenance hours and lower its operational costs. ZEDEDA ensures extensibility and flexibility by leveraging an open partner ecosystem with a robust app marketplace and a Linux Foundation open architecture. ZEDEDA is in charge of thousands of nodes and has teams in the United States, Germany, and India. Some of the best investors in the world have backed it.
ZEDEDA simplifies, opens up, and secures edge computing, bringing the cloud experience to the edge. The ZEDEDA platform lowers the cost of managing and orchestrating distributed edge infrastructure and applications while increasing visibility, security, and control. ZEDEDA provides a distributed, cloud-native edge management and orchestration solution that simplifies the security and remote management of large-scale edge infrastructure and applications.
