The industrial world is going through a transformation known as Industry 4.0, or the Industrial Internet of Things. This transformation is leading to smart manufacturing systems, with more compute capability at the edge. However, adding more compute capability increases OPEX. This is due to the complexity of computer integration and compute options as well as cabling, power, and maintenance costs. The solution to solving this cost increase is “application consolidation.”

Application consolidation within the factory will allow multiple compute workloads to run on a common computing platform. The control of individual machines, manufacturing data collection, communications, security, and safety functions can be consolidated into “virtual machines” within a single compute platform. Another advantage is that all the data can be analyzed locally, so quick decisions can be made rather than going back to the data center or cloud for further instructions.

In this session, learn how advances in processing performance, real-time operating systems, and virtualization technology are enabling application consolidation in the factory to drive global industries from automatic to autonomous for Industry 4.0.
