The oil and gas sector is gearing up for the biggest industry event of the year — ADIPEC 2021, which takes place November 15–18 in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. One of the world’s most influential meetings for energy professionals, the event aims to unlock value in the evolving Energy landscape. This aligns exactly with capabilities of the Edge Computing technologies that Stratus and Schneider Electric have jointly developed: the EcoStruxure Micro Data Centre™ (MDC) with Stratus® ftServer®.
We’re excited to join Schneider Electric at ADIPEC 2021 booth #4250 in Hall 4 to showcase the power and security that these Edge Computing technologies can offer oil and gas companies. Demonstrations of the MDC’s fault tolerance, uninterrupted power supply, and cybersecurity protections will give attendees hands-on experience in the quick and efficient deployment, management, and protection of oil and gas applications and equipment data at the edge.
The Power of the EcoStuxure MDC and Stratus ftServer
The EcoStruxure MDC is tested, validated, and available with pre-loaded software, such as AVEVA™ System Platform, in a physically protected, single enclosure solution, solving IT and OT management as well as data latency and bandwidth issues. The MDC architecture, which is available in a range of configurations, also simplifies the specification, purchase, and deployment of best-in-class class hardware and software from Schneider Electric, AVEVA, and Stratus. The result is a 40% reduction in field engineering time, a 7% reduction in maintenance costs, and a 20% increase in speed-to-market.
Manuel Rodrigues, Vice President Gulf for Secure Power, Schneider Electric, said, “Schneider Electric and Stratus share a commitment to customers and System Integrators in addressing their critical needs as they safely field technology to improve operations. With the EcoStruxure MDC using Stratus ftServer, we are giving them confidence as well as simplifying their efforts by bridging IT and OT requirements in a single solution. For the Oil & Gas industry, this translates to a powerful, resilient, and secure data centre that can be reliably deployed in upstream, midstream, or downstream environments.”
Edge Computing Technologies Are Transforming O&G
The urgency in Oil and Gas is to control costs and increase efficiency without jeopardizing safety. As companies venture into digitalization to optimize production and improve operations, Edge Computing is the cornerstone to a successful transformation effort. By maximizing uptime and providing real-time access to mission-critical data, Edge Computing helps Oil and Gas companies improve reliability, security, and safety.
The path to the digital transformation of the O&G sector is still unfolding. Stratus solutions make it easy to address today’s pressing issues, while future-proofing business-critical operations, and unlocking competitive advantages. Success stories from best-in-class organizations that have adopted Edge Computing technologies illustrate how oil and gas companies can drive predictable, peak performance with minimal risk. This emergent technology is helping turn data into actionable insights where it matters most — at the edge.
