Project Scope

To ensure product consistency a variety of PC based control systems provide round the clock process monitoring, control and reporting for industry compliance. The site looked to AVS to provide a solid solution to enable the migration to newer hardware of older systems on site. In addition the system had to provide a consistent backup routine for all process data and process specific SCADA applications and provide fast deployment of any application in the event of a system failure. AVS ensures all applications and data are securely backed up on a sequential basis the AVS server component has been deployed in Systagenix's offsite data centre hosting ESXi server to provide a further secure environment for the companies production assets.
