zenon Service Engine on Docker

If you don't keep up with the times, you might find yourself left behind. Companies have to respond rapidly to changing business conditions to keep up with dynamic competition. This also applies to your IT functions, since applications have to be scalable to respond to new requirements. But how can applications such as zenon be extended easily and at any time without adding hardware?


  • Maximum scalability for your zenon application
  • Save on hardware costs
  • Efficiency in use through flexibility, portability and performance



zenon Service Engine runs on Docker. Benefit from high-performance control and scalability for projects, even those with large amounts of data.



Fast implementation and easy maintenance

Docker container technology solves this challenge. Services and processes are isolated from each other, which means that the original, time-consuming loading process at startup is no longer an issue, as the requirements for hard disk and RAM have been reduced. Instead of setting up the application directly on the system, you pack it and all of its dependencies into a Docker container, which can then be distributed and implemented in a consistent manner. The compilation process runs using images (installer files) that are ready for use in a matter of seconds. Users also benefit from minimal downtime because the servers are easy to maintain and programs can be moved easily.



Scale applications, save resources

zenon Service Engine runs on Docker. All the applications and functions that zenon needs are compiled in a handy package that can be launched from your own file system. Previously, it was possible to store the entire infrastructure centrally using virtual machines, but this was often not practical because of the resources required. With container technology, specifically Docker, this can be achieved in a way that saves resources. It also improves performance and enables virtually unlimited scalability. Another benefit is, of course, that you save on hardware costs with Docker, since multiple runtime installations can run on one server. Data from zenon Service Engine is likewise stored on the host system, where it is available permanently.
