Virtualization

Leverage a virtual infrastructure to reduce develop/deploy cycles, centralize management, and extend the life of legacy systems.

The virtual platform provides flexibility at the cost of vast array of performance-impacting design choices. Choosing the right host server, storage solution, backup/restore, redundancy, and licensing is the key to success.


Design

Industrial-focused, resilient network architecture designs to meet your current and future bandwidth, latency, and redundancy requirements.

From lightly managed local network segments, to inter-building fiber, to site-to-site secure VPN architectures, we have a solution for your plant.


Servers/Clients

Industrial Server and Client hardware requires extended life and support for 24/7/365 operations.

Lucid's matches the hardware and operating systems to the industrial application. Systems are provided with controlled build documents, application software installed, tested, and life-cycle maintenance schedules.

Forward-Looking Security and Network Designs

The network is the base upon which all production equipment and data systems are built. Lucid's designs are fully documented, tested, and validated prior to deployment to increase confidence and meet regulatory requirements.

We understand that these systems need to work the first time, continue to run under heavy use, and be upgradeable to keep current with industry trends.

Security and reliability is built into the design. Options for monitoring the network and other connected systems provide early actionable alerts.

Virtualization Advantage
Virtualization has become standard in industry because of its many advantages at all stages of a plant's system life-cycle.

For new systems, the reduction time in development and testing is key. Especially in regulated environments where rigid change control exists. Moving systems from the development environment to the production environment is straight forward.

Systems in their prime can leverage virtualization to consolidate hardware, formalize a disaster recovery plan, or regressively apply redundancy/fail over features. In most cases these can be applied without requiring re-testing of the system

Legacy systems can have their life much beyond the availability of hardware or software upgrade availability. Special considerations will be needed for security of the network, but overall a cost effective means to keep production going.
