With zenon Service Grid, performance at different company locations worldwide can be compared in real time – without a VPN connection.
A central hub for your data
To enable control, monitoring and analysis across locations, a central point is needed to collect and distribute the necessary data. zenon Service Grid brings together data across distributed corporate structures in the zenon Service Hub.
Live and historical data can be imported via the zenon Service Hub to a control center or centralized data storage. From there, data can be used for various purposes, such as comparing cross-location performance indicators, benchmarks, dashboards on mobile devices and much more. The recording process is stable and seamless, even if the Internet connection is lost. It is not necessary to set up a VPN connection.
zenon Service Grid ensures out-of-the-box setup of secure architectures through certificate-encrypted TLS connections, integrated authentication and authorization mechanisms, as well as individually definable read, write or configuration rights in line with existing security regulations.
The new possibilities of the IIoT
With zenon Service Grid, your data is seamlessly available to you in one central location. The individual services support modern technologies for virtualization, such as Docker and Kubernetes. zenon Service Grid can be used on various cloud platforms because physical or virtual machines or virtual containers can serve as the basic system. This means that users remain platform-independent and scalability is always ensured. Applications from other providers can be connected flexibly via the API interface. This opens up many possibilities to combine the known benefits of zenon with those of the IIoT.
