Solving the 7 Major Pain Points for Manufacturing Availability

The processes running on the factory floor are critical for manufacturing businesses – any downtime immediately results in lost productivity and revenue. This means that protecting critical manufacturing applications like process control servers and keeping them highly available have always been a priority.

For example, applications are usually highly specialized for different discrete processes but they often run on out-of-date operating systems like Windows XP. Software is mostly very stable and rarely (if ever) updated.

This whitepaper discusses the costs of manufacturing downtime, explores the main challenges in maintaining uptime, and considers data protection solutions that can support manufacturing IT infrastructure.
