Manufacturing Companies face unique IT challenges
The processes running on the factory floor are critical for manufacturing businesses – any downtime immediately results in lost productivity and revenue. This means that protecting critical manufacturing applications like process control servers and keeping them highly available have always been a priority.
However, this need for high availability also presents several IT challenges that are unique to the manufacturing industry. For example, applications are usually highly specialized for different discrete processes, but they often run on out-of-date operating systems like Windows XP. Software is mostly very stable and rarely updated. For manufacturing companies, there are many issues that must be considered when evaluating Backup and Disaster Recovery:
- Legacy data protection solutions are slow, complex and inadequate
- Ransomware and cryptojacking malware also attack uptime and performance
- Factories often lack IT support staff
- The IT environments typically include aging operating systems and applications
All of these issues layered on top of the need to be timely and fast in production to maximize profit makes the need for a high-performance data protection solution and a team to deploy it imperative.
