Honeywell announced it is providing virtualization technology for its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS). This technology is said to help manufacturers streamline Experion system management and lower the total cost of ownership by up to 30%.
Virtualization allows a single server to simultaneously run multiple operating systems and applications.
Honeywell’s range of virtualized offerings include Experion off-line testing and development solution that can be used for training, simulation and engineering. It also includes Experion’s suite of Advanced Alarm Management solutions that improve process safety and operator efficiency, and eServer solutions that provide Web access to the system.
“Every manufacturer today is being asked to do more with less, and virtualization is a key to helping them achieve that goal because it can change how process control systems are installed and maintained,” says Vimal Kapur, vice president of strategy and global marketing. “By combining virtualization with Experion we are enabling cost savings for our customers and improving the overall user experience.”
