C1 Server on Yokogawa Cloud

Yokogawa to launch cloud-enabled version of CI Server

TOKYO, January 24, 2022

Yokogawa Electric Corporation will release the Collaborative Information Server (CI Server) R1.02 in March 2022. 
This new version of CI Server, a product in the OpreX Control and Safety System family, will have the ability to be delivered on Yokogawa Cloud, the company's cloud platform.  
Since its release in January 2021, CI Server has been adopted for use in plants all over the world. By integrating the handling of all kinds of data from plant equipment and systems, this solution facilitates the optimised management of production activities across an entire enterprise, while also providing a remote operation environment to ensure efficient plant operations from any location.
In order to help customers drastically reduce their system infrastructure design, maintenance, and management workload, this release of CI Server has been enhanced to enable cloud-based operation, in addition to conventional system configuration in an on-premise environment. Customers will be able to use CI Server in a platform as a service (PaaS) format that combines Yokogawa Cloud, a software licence, and maintenance. 
The use of CI Server together with Yokogawa Cloud will ensure a high security environment.
Key Benefits:
*Lower cost project implementation and swift project launch;
*Running CI Server in a cloud environment enables a reduction in the number of PCs and other such hardware in plants. This eliminates the need for design and configuration work necessary for hardware setup, and speeds up project development. Furthermore, given that projects can be launched without having to purchase additional hardware, initial implementation costs are lower;
*Safe and efficient operation
With the reduction in hardware, maintenance workload is reduced. And as server capacity can be scaled up for cloud-based operations, it is possible with this version of CI Server to swiftly respond to changes in the operating environment.
The combination of CI Server with Yokogawa Cloud can also reduce the need for cloud environment-related maintenance. In addition, the provision of operating system updates, anti-virus software management, and security monitoring services help customers improve the safety and efficiency of their operations.
Oil and gas upstream, midstream gas and liquid pipelines, petrochemicals, chemicals, renewable energy, power, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, food, mining, iron and steel, water distribution, and wastewater treatment are the major markets for the product. -- TradeArabia News Service
