Cloud for the Manufacturing sector
Accordingly to IDC, in 2019 manufacturers will spend on cloud computing platforms around 5 billion dollars globally, and this trend is expected to sustain at around 20% year on year.
Cloud for manufacturing
Factories no longer simply collect and store data but also gain actionable insights from it. Whether it’s for quality improvement, sales forecasts or preventative maintenance to remove a point of failure before it occurs, predictive and enhanced analytics or machine learning can give manufacturers an edge over their competitors and often a completely new USP.
Easy data access
Cloud platforms (IaaS, SaaS, RaaS) also provides manufacturers with the synchronisation of data from multiple sources into a single output – dashboard. The cloud with its elasticity is an ideal solution for monitoring and controlling factory processes and analysing data. Moreover, the data received from all points can be read easily visually and accessed via the internet from anywhere.
For small and medium-size manufacturing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) can provide an enterprise-level infrastructure through a pay-as-you-go model, without the initial IT hardware investment. IaaS gives manufacturers the flexibility of “a menu” features. Companies are able to accelerate productivity by using only the resources and features they require. With IaaS, manufacturing operations can monitor and analyse their usage and modify services to meet the customer or technology requirements.
As industrial automation becomes more IoT (intelligent) and manufacturers embrace robotics and automation technology, cloud computing is set to become the right solution to store and manage the ever-growing production data, i.e. the BIG DATA. Apart from the data storage space, the cloud helps manufacturers to reduce costs, provide new services, improve agility, adapt quickly to customer needs, optimise performance and ultimately, drive profitability.
PeaSoup Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides a flexible and scalable slice of our cloud (cluster). Our dedicated virtual datacentres take advantage of our cloud resilience and performance, virtual cloud (vCloud) security and a segmentation layer, to ensure each and every customer has their own Virtual Datacentre.
PeaSoup DRaaS solution is designed to automate and simplify the recovery process, with a modern inexpensive, agile and scalable cloud solution. PeaSoup has teamed up with Zerto to deliver a True Virtual Replication (disaster recovery) between private clouds or satellite offices to our Cloud Services with a single software solution.
PeaSoup’s user-friendly backup and recovery service provides costs per GB predictions, ensuring full cost transparency for the retention periods set. Local backup ensures fast recovery of files with encryption provided as a default, 24/7. There are also a number of location to store your data.
