Arraid Products in Process Control

Arraid has helped many companies deal with storage related problems in their Process Control systems. The field of Process Control covers a wide range of computer and automated systems, usually in Manufacturing or Production. These systems, including their sensor and control components, may be huge, such as those used in PetroChemical Plants or Steel Mills. Smaller systems may run a single machine tool.

Generally, these computer systems may be viewed as “fixed use” systems. They were designed and built to interface with specific equipment or to run specific application software. Over time, the application changes slowly and very little. As long as the computer system remains reliable and maintainable, there is no reason to upgrade the system or rehost the computer. Unfortunately, while the system's host computer and interfaces may remain reliable and maintainable, legacy storage products don't.

As with any mission critical system, where production depends on its proper operation, computer system availability is key. Missed production means lost revenue and potentially lost Customers. Support teams are constantly challenged to prevent failure and minimize downtime. Arraid products can help.

esp 1tFor these older computer systems, Arraid provides COTS storage emulation solutions, integrating ARRAIDs proprietary FPGA based solid state Flash Drive (AFD), it can extend the life of mission critical systems and help to insure optimum availability. For early SCSI systems we have both JBOD chassis and replacement SCSI Flash Drive modules. For more current systems, Arraid can provide NAS and RAID storage modules to increase system capabilities and performance.
