ARC's Bob Mick Presentation on Using Server Virtualization In Manufacturing Operations @ ARC Industry Forum 2009 in Orlando, FL.
The Situation
Virtualization is not New. Why Now for Operations?
􀂍 Proven Value
• Corporate IT experiences the value
• New capabilities enable a broader group of candidate applications
• Pilots in Manufacturing Operations have demonstrated value
􀂍 Proven Products
• VMware – Very mature products
• Microsoft – Technology important to Operations
• Many other products and partnerships
􀂍 Why not use Virtualization in Operations?
• Install a new set of servers with each new application?
• Legacy software value - Run legacy software on new hardware
• Replacement computers are many times faster – waste?
• Better management, Backup, Back-out, Reliability …
“Virtualization” Can Mean more than Virtual Servers
… Storage, Grid, Assets …

  18. 18. Microsoft, VMware …Are the Needs of Manufacturing Operations Unique?Microsoft, VMware …Are the Needs of Manufacturing Operations Unique?Smaller implementations of virtualization (e.g. smallmanufacturing control rooms) do not warrant expensive SANinfrastructures. Local storage solutions make more sense inthese cases. Will your software continue to support localstorage implementation in the long term?Drivers to adopt virtualization in manufacturing environmentsinclude reduction of technical "churn" of hardware, operatingsystem and software applications. While virtualization easessystem and software applications. While virtualization easessome of this, it also adds to it. Would you consider extendingbase hypervisor support (e.g. security and critical patches) sothat a hypervisor version has at least the same useful life asth d l i h d ?the underlying hardware?18© ARC Advisory GroupIt is Too Early to Know – So Far So Good
