|With the cost savings and efficiency of virtualization comes significant risk. Unfortunately, virtualization makes downtime even more damaging and costly. Before virtualization, when one server hosted one application, only one process stopped if that server went down. But with virtualized servers running multiple applications, a crash can negatively affect multiple processes.
Unplanned downtime of Industrial Control Systems; including SCADA, HMI and MES are the #1 enemy of enhanced productivity and higher efficiencies and a major driver of unplanned costs.
